A friend in Southampton, NY saw a commercial for Optimum Cablevision on TV tonight, featuring Michael.  She said it was hysterical with Michael bathing a dog in a backyard (his?) on a trampoline and on the phone in a home (his?) She said the commercial kept saying call us at xxx-xxxx, not Michael Bolton at xxx-xxxx to sign up for Optimum Cablevision.  She said it was a lengthy commercial and assumed I knew about it.  I've searched high and low and can't find it anywhere.  Does anyone know anything more about this commercial?  She said Michael looked great (naturally!) and was very comical.  Hopefully, it will pop up in the forum or on youtube soon!  I can't wait t see it!

Jackie,

As I was watching some parts look like they may have been shot at MB's house in CT, but not sure.

But then I realized the outside pool scenes, there are palm trees all around,  So it's not CT, must be some place in CA.

So funny..................love it!LOL!!!!!

Agree Joy it is not at CT(wrong shape of pool too) or not all of it, but does Michael not have a house in Florida or, somewhere, in that area ????   I love the bit where he is sitting counting his money with the big goldfish bowl full of loose change.....LOL

Sylvia,

Yes, the counting his coins is funny! I have never heard that he has a house in FL or CA, but he sure could I suppose. The more I watch it, the more it does not look like his CT home.  I was also thinking could they be shooting the pilot for his new sitcom?  Maybe this is the set or house they will be using for his new comedy show.

This is his home with a little bit of hollywood magic!  :)  The video is for a local cablevision company..local to CT/NY area.

Gail,

Thanks for the info, we will now stop wondering!

You know us, we just have to know everything.

I should have realized there are fake palm trees!!

Thanks for info Gail and Joy Michael does/did have a home in CA for he used to stay in a condominium but of course don't know what happened when he moved in with NS and then the break-up if he went back or bought somewhere new.

Here is a review of Michael's Optimum commercial:

 

Ad of the Day: Optimum

Stop calling Michael Bolton, and start getting a great deal on TV, phone and Internet


You people have caused Michael Bolton no end of misery, and I just hope you're happy.

Mother's new spot for Optimum features good sport Bolton giving his dog a bath, jumping on a trampoline and rocking out in his amps-only living room while people like you—who make me sick, you're so inconsiderate—keep calling him and calling him.

The well-cast Optimum spokesperson shamefacedly explains that the company's new 866 number is just one digit different than Michael Bolton's number (please don't call him—he's had enough grief from you) and flashes both numbers up on the screen to explain the error. "Oops," says the Optimum rep, grinning sheepishly.

Yeah, "Oops." You've just given the vulture-like American public a way to get in touch with the beloved singer of "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You," and probably also some other songs, too. For the love of God, folks, leave the man alone.

OK, so I called Michael Bolton, mostly to ask him what he's been up to recently. But when I dialed the number in the ad, I got the following phone tree: "Hello, you've reached Michael Bolton. Press 1 if you thought you were calling Optimum to get TV, phone and internet for $84.95 a month. Press 2 to hear me shred on the guitar. Press 3 to hear how I warm up before a performance. Press 4 to hear me speak Spanish. Press 5 to hear a funny joke."

The joke's not actually that funny, but Michael Bolton laughs. Well played, Mother. Well played.

LOL Cute!!!!

...and just so you know...you can press numbers to hear Michael play the guitar, warm up, speak Spanish and he tells a joke.!! Pretty cute actually!!LOL

1-866-200-7152

Thanks Gail!!!!

This is too cool!!! He's really gone all out for that promotion!!LOL  Love it you guys..You can hear him any time you want!!!

Well however long they leave it up there!!LOL

Robin in MD:)

Thank you Gail,

I really wondered how many vulture like people called the number, not knowing that you can get through, now I must try it! LOL Ok Just tried it and it does work, that is one very clever way for Otimum to get bussiness.

Kellie

LOL!! Too funny!
