* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap:
** If you look at his youtube videos you will find frequent mentions of going BACK TO THE GOOD PART, which apparently involve Creator/JohnnyDepp and [[{{Kraken}} Giant Squids]]. Basically, his Music/TheLonelyIsland appearance was so freaking epic it earned him a ''lot'' of [[NewbieBoom new fans]]. It helps that ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' is already the object of much affection by the public, and that a [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanOnStrangerTides fourth movie]] came out two weeks after the video premiered.
** What "Jack Sparrow" may have managed to do is VindicatedByHistory in reverse; Michael Bolton was a major YMMV singer at the height of his career. People either loved him or he was derided constantly. Now, 20 years later, the Internet generation, which is tilting toward a demographic that wasn't even born during his most successful years, loves him. For all the TommyBoy references, ''Film/OfficeSpace'' jokes and WTHCastingAgency reaction to Lady Gaga's support for him, Michael Bolton may finally have the last laugh over his critics.
** Apparently when he did an impromptu performance of "When A Man Loves A Woman" at a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' afterparty, both [[http://youtu.be/e0XleMIKKNg?t=5m45s Jimmy Fallon]] and [[http://youtu.be/djC2RqdfSZU?t=1m57s Seth Meyers commented]] that they were completely blown away by it.
-->'''Seth''': Michael Bolton? ''Destroyed''. [...] When Michael Bolton gets up, you donít think "Iím gonna get my balls blown off".


Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: He's this to the younger generation. Older fans of adult contemporary from way back, it's just, well, regular charm.
** Just [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bv5vMJKBAbo the video]] for "Said I Loved You... But I Lied." Unbuttoned shirts, belting it out in the mountains, all that denim, the excessive fades to wildlife.
-->"I need more pictures of horses!!!"

* HilariousInHindsight: Michael Bolton's over-the-top balladry was a frequent target of 1990s comedians, and he even got frequent potshots from Ryan Stiles on ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway.'' The late Creator/BillHicks, in particular, haaaaaaated Michael Bolton, even telling audiences "you know how phony he sounds, right??" Flash forward to 2017, where he has a new fandom in the comedy world and does a Creator/{{Netflix}} special with a plethora of comedians, some of which (Creator/BobSaget, Creator/JaneaneGarofalo) were Hicks' ''peers'' back in the day.

Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeDiabetes: Michael Bolton songs tend to go straight for "tender ballad" and milk it for all its worth. He's probably second only to Music/AirSupply in that regard.

* NeverLiveItDown: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZrK_kOk8Lw When singing the national anthem at a Yankees game]], he forgot the lyrics, so he read the lyrics ''he wrote down on his hand''. When this happened, the man was nearly booed out of Yankee Stadium, but he was able to redeem himself by the end, because he's Michael Bolton.
