Michael Bolton Sings About Pirates On Saturday Night Live [VIDEO]


I’m a huge fan of Saturday Night Live skits, especially when celebrities make guest appearances to laugh about themselves.

The Lonely Island, a group featuring best friends Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer, are notorious for their “Digital Short” music videos on SNL featuring big celebrities. Last Saturday, Michael Bolton made an appearance in the latest track from their new album, Turtleneck and Chain, to sing about his favorite movie character – Captain Jack Sparrow.

The clip starts with the Lonely Island in the studio as Bolton arrives. He apologizes for being late, saying he got caught up in a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ marathon, then promises he wrote “a big sexy hook” for their new song.

The rhythmic rap song begins as the group — and Bolton — hit the club to look for ladies. Cut to Bolton, who suddenly appears on a windy beach to deliver the chorus he promised. In his typical, way-too-earnest style, Bolton sings, “This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow / A pirate so brave on the seven seas.”

The befuddled band members continue with the song, only to have Bolton, now in costume as Captain Jack himself, constantly interrupt with references to Tortuga and giant squid.

When the guys finally make clear they’re not fond of Bolton’s pirate-loving hook, he says, “Roger that, let me try it with another film,” and proceeds to belt out plot lines from ‘Forrest Gump,’ ‘Erin Brockovich’ and ‘Scarface,’ while dressed up as characters from each.
