Those crazy cutups from The Lonely Island have struck music/comedy gold once again. This time, they’ve done it with the help of the one and only Michael Bolton.
“Captain Jack Sparrow” us the latest single and video from the group’s new album, Turtleneck & Chain, which comes out tomorrow. Bolton is his usual overwrought self on the chorus, but his presence in the song’s video is completely epic. Whoever saw fit to put Bolton in a variety of different guises, including Tony Montana, Forrest Gump, and (yes) Captain Jack Sparrow, is a fucking genius. And kudos to Bolton (who has occasionally had a reputation of being kind of a pompous prick) for being a good sport and playing along.
