“At least your name isn’t Michael Bolton!” In the latest Funny or Die sketch, the real Grammy-winning singer Michael Bolton replaces actor David Herman as the character Michael Bolton in 1999’s classic comedy Office Space.
Herman’s character is plagued by sharing a moniker with the famed performer, and has several lines devoted to trashing him. In the sketch, the real Bolton reads the same lines, mocking himself.
“There was nothing wrong with that [name] until I was about 12 years old and that extremely talented ass clown started winning all those Grammys,” he declares.
“Why don’t you just go by Mike instead of Michael?” actor Ajay Naidu asks, while playing Bolton’s office mate Samir.
“No way, why should I change? He’s the one who sucks!” he replies.
