Michael Bolton Just Became Cool

8 May

You probably don’t remember Michael Bolton‘s peak years. The soft rock king sang his power ballads and won the hearts of millions of women during the 1990s. Well, somehow the Lonely Island guys decided he would be a great contributor for their current album “Turtleneck & Chain.” The song the guys dreamt up focused on a night in the club, but they left the hook up to Bolton.

His hook involved “Jack Sparrow” much to the chagrin of the boys. Apparently, he had just finished watching the “Pirates of the Caribbean” when he wrote it. Throughout the video he channels Johnny Depp‘s Jack Sparrow character, Forrest Gump, Erin Brockovich and Scarface. It’s really funny.

Also worth noting the really convenient timing of the whole thing. Oh, you don’t think it’s coincidental that the fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie opens later this month?  Great marketing strategy.

Another “Pirates” Movie Already in the Works

30 Mar

We’re still a couple of months away from the debut of the fourth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie francise, but Disney already has the script for a fifth adventure written.

Starting with the fourth movie and continuing with future ones in the francise, the stories will stand alone as singular adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow. The first three movies contained the same general characters and thematic elements.

Johnny Depp will likely continue on as Jack Sparrow. Thew new movies will hope to recapture the magic from the first (and arguably the second) movies in the series. The third suffered from lackluster critical reviews.
