I was never a Michael Bolton fan back in his heyday. Far from it. I'm not really a fan now, but I can tolerate the commercial tunes, and I am actually glad to see he is making a comeback (of sorts). It's great that he's willing to poke fun at himself (a la David Hasselhoff).
ITA. I was never a fan, and apparently he's still "whining," lol, but I like the ads and think they're clever. Anyway, this campaign beats their annual "Happy Honda Days" ads that they air because they're too wimpy to say "Merrry Christmas."

Don't feel sorry for me, the commercials don't bother me. Bolton is actually a really nice man in real life. I am not surprised he is able to make fun himself.
Actually people don't know this but many popular celebrities do commercials in other parts of their world. Like everything in the entertaiment industry it's all about the image. They just don't do commercials in the US because it's considered a desperate act, but when it doesn't affect their image(like in Europe or Asia)they do anything for some extra cash.
He became hip because he was making fun of himself in the tongue-and-cheek Captain Jack Sparrow song.
The point of the Honda commercials is not to take them seriously as they are similar tongue-and-cheek versions of Captain Jack Sparrow. The songs are not serious--Snow Is Gonna Blow? Lighten up--the ads are supposed to be funny.
Thank you.....I was never a fan until Captain Jack Sparrow and saw how he could poke fun at himself with Andy Samberg, who is another all time favorite from SNL video shorts. Lonely Island is a spoof rock group that gets talent in to cut musical numbers. They a few albums out, "Turtleneck and Chain" is some funny stuff.
OK, I get it. This thread totally backfired on me, and that's just the way it goes sometimes. I'm pretty much over it now. When I started the thread I had a few drinks and company over that night, and one of my best friends was recalling her childhood and how awful it was to ride around in a car with her mother and constant Michael Bolton/Celine Dion genre of music on the radio. The commercial came on and triggered that memory and she is laughing about it now, though I sarcastically and humorously offered my condolences for having to endure that kind of torment.
