Who would’ve known Michael Bolton was such a funny guy?
One of the best running gags in the cult comedy classic Office Space was that one of the characters happened to be burdened by having the same name as the 1980s pop-rock balladeer. Of course, there were a few jokes made at Bolton’s expense.
Clearly Bolton is a good sport, as the singer recently made a special appearance in a Funny or Die video in which he reenacted the role of Michael Bolton #2 in scenes from the movie. Aside from a few changes (Bolton changes actor David Herman’s original line describing himself as a “no-talent ass-clown” to something a little more complimentary,) the scenes are nearly identical to the original, which is now 15 years old.
Now Michael Bolton #2 just needs to reenact the reenactment of the real Michael Bolton, and we’d have an Office Space Inception.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Bolton laugh at himself though. Remember this incredible SNL sketch in which Bolton obsessed over Captain Jack Sparrow?
Michael Bolton’s reenactments of Michael Bolton are perfect. Watch him go nuts on some office equipment here…
