WATCH: The Lonely Island ft. Michael Bolton “Jack Sparrow”

The Lonely Island has been known to collaborate with what you might consider "hot" artists - Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Julian Casablancas, T-Pain, and Akon to name a few - which only partly contributes to why the Digital Short that debuted Saturday night is so incredibly amazing. Not only does it feature a decidely not hip artist, ie. Michael Bolton, but the video takes us on a cinematic journey with Mr. Bolton re-creating several familiar scenes, including a particularly terrifying take on Erin Brockovitch. As they say, "it turns out Michael Bolton is a major cinephile." Who knew?

Watch the full short below, and be sure to pick up our cover stars' new album, Turtleneck & Chain, when it hits stores tomorrow! Also, take a minute to explore Bolton's photo gallery of behind-the-scenes pics from the shoot. The man's range (vocal and visual, heh) knows no bounds.
