After a study revealed that one-third of all Canadians are “Netflix cheaters,” Michael Bolton – yes, that Michael Bolton – is here to help the guilty make amends.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the “How Am I Supposed To Live Without You” singer is helping couples apologize for watching highly binge-worthy series like “Narcos” and “Stranger Things” without their significant other. The study determined 37 per cent of all Canadian couples who agree to stream a series together will inevitably end up cheating on their partner by watching more episodes after their special someone has gone to bed or is out of town.
Now, thanks to Bolton, there’s a chance for guilty binge-watchers to say “sorry.”
In a new Public Service Announcement from Netflix, Bolton is giving tips on how to win back your streaming partner. Not only is Bolton helping cheaters out, he also admits that he too, is guilty of Netflix cheating.
“We’ve all been there, even someone like me, Michael Bolton,” he confesses. “Your special someone isn’t around, you turn on Netflix and you just can’t help but watch without them.”
Bolton encourages cheaters to “do the right thing” by apologizing.
The singer lists off a number of helpful and hilarious ways to apologize to your loved one in a variety of languages, because sometimes saying “Have this kitten” in Italian is the only way to mend a Netflix broken heart.
Also high on the list of ways to apologize are breaking remotes in half, a wind machine and a sexy sax solo, and if all else fails, break into song.
If Bolton’s tips aren’t enough, vowing to watch “Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Valentine’s Day” special on Netflix will probably help patch things up with your sweetheart.
Directed by “Comedy Bang! Bang!”‘s Scott Aukerman, Bolton’s special will feature the singer performing an array of love songs made up of both classic hits and all-new original love-making music, according to Netflix.
The “Big Sexy” special will feature guest stars Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Casey Wilson, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Eric Andre, Michael Sheen and Randall Park, as well as The Lonely Island duo Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone.
