Saw OFFICE SPACE for the umpteenth time on cable the other day. Definitely on my “all time top comedy” list. Out of all the scenes I’d say my fave has to be the Michael Bolton one. I crack up every time David Herman explains why he’s so ticked off for sharing a name with the late 80s early 90s pop star. Dave’s character felt MB was a hack. Very funny, but in actuality that couldn’t be further from the truth.
THE MICHAEL BOLTON BREAKDOWN OF SUCCESS…
8 top 10 albums
2 #1 singles on the Billboard charts
53 million dollars in record sales
Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male, "How Am I Supposed To Live Without You" (1990)
Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male, "When A Man Loves A Woman" (1992)
Songwriter for Conway Twitty, Barbra Streisand, Kiss, Kenny G, Kenny Rogers, Peabo Bryson and Patti LaBelle
Collaborated with BabyFace, Diane Warren, Shania Twain and Bob Dylan
Accomplished opera singer (performed with Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti)
American Music Award winner (1992, 1993 & 1995)
BOLTON CAN ALSO TAKE A JOKE.
True story: When asked about the scene in Office Space, MB said he never saw the film, but he has gladly autographed many copies of the DVD. That's a humanitarian for you.
