The Lonely Island genius

There’s a reason that The Lonely Island guys are blowing up all over the media. I never thought I’d put up a video where Michael Bolton is featured…but they make it watchable and entertaining!

(note, this is the uncensored version)

    Yeah, this was my favourite Michael Bolton ever. (Well, at least for this Michael Bolton.)

    Of course, like everything that has ever emerged from SNL, they make the joke, and then they repeat it over and over, being more and more obvious. Making sure that even the dimmest bulb in the room gets the joke, but also ensuring that the people who got the joke early on are annoyed.

    bolton owned that. he should guest in more rap. it’s just enough bolton.

    Ok, I managed to hold back my laugh until he sang “and her womb is polluted,” and then I just lost it.

    I think this was originally aired on the show that Tina Fey hosted on Mother’s Day weekend. Her opening monologue is worth checking out too. It’s her and Mya Rudolf (both pregnant) singing a song to their unborn fetuses and then singing an actual duet with them via ultrasound (fetuses, played by Kristin Whig and Keenan Thompson, singing into microphones attached to thier umbilical cords).

    I’m at work, so I can’t include a link, but you should be able to find it on the SNL website. Definitely worth checking out.
