Anyone else tired of seeing Michael Bolton every other commercial?

Posted on 12/24/2013 6:43:02 PM PST by conservaterian

If the guy had a decent voice maybe I wouldn't mind so much but I have to put the sound off every time those Honda commercials come on.

It’s not that he has a lousy voice per se, it’s that every song he sings sounds the same. He’s got no range, and no versatility.

I had the same feeling when I saw the first one but then realized the ad campaign is meant to be humorous. At least that’s how I take it. Now I think they’re funny and a good ad campaign. I’d bet they’re doing the job.

Earlier this evening, I stepped into a room in which my teenage nephew was watching TV. I said “Did Flo come on yet?” No more than three seconds later... Progressive Insurance appeared. We laughed.

" I'll be honest with you, I love his music. I do. I'm a Michael Bolton fan. For my money, I don't know if it gets any better than when he sings "When a Man Loves a Woman".

Honda could lose some business with those ads. He sounds like he got his junk squeezed in a vise.

Wow.
I just realized that I haven’t seen a television commercial in months.
That’s really saying something for me.
I grew up on a steady diet of TV.
But TV changed.
And so I left it.
My two kids don’t watch TV either. Oh, they see DVDs and a few cartoons and such. But it’s all Netflix and Amazon.com. No commercials and nothing I don’t know about.
Man. Commercials. It’s been awhile. Can’t say I miss them.

I’ve been wondering who that was on the honda commercials.

I thought they were a parody of a washed up rock star.

NOT if you're at one of his concerts, with a hot babe on your arm :)

Then later, you make a CD or mp3 playlist with a Michael Bolton song or 2 interspersed and play it while in the car on another date :)

That is the most godawful excuse for a singer since Tiny Tim. He sounds constipated and straining. Cats caught in a wringer would be more bearable. Get the man some ExLax! And we wont even get into the fact that cars are advertised like candy(which isn`t)...as if everyone is buying them. If I were looking for a car I`d make a point f telling Honda why they won`t get my money.

I spend countless hours searching for newer and better ways to humiliate famous socialists.and amuse common sense Americans

I am pretty sure that having a TV would cut in to that time..

If the alternative is to buy his music and risk it showing up when I shuffle play, I’ll just mute the Honda ads.

Every time that no so-called “singer” bellows, I turn the station so I don’t have to see or hear him. I’m no sure why Honda resurrected that talent-less jackass. And where in the hell did he get that hair? I thought he was bald.

I can’t believe that he’s earned even a nickel from whatever he does. I thought we’d seen the last of him, so I hope Honda stops those commercials right after Christmas.

After he was willing to do this, I can never hate Michael Bolton. How many singers could do a self-parody this good?
