When Melissa brought this video to my attention the other day... there might have been tears from all the laughter. Despite Andy Samberg and his crew's extreme disapproval in the video, there is no denying that Bolton's hook was, indeed, as "big and sexy" as he promised. I found myself whistling it on the way to work, out at lunch, while writing pitch emails, etc. I just can't get away from it. Hell, I can't get enough of it. So, like any good blogger, I went to the Internet to get even more.

And behold, Tumblr had exploded with animated Michael Bolton .gifs, showing the legendary musician at his comedic best.
To celebrate the video the entire Quirk office has come to love, I've posted my top ten animated .gifs from all wakes of the Tumblrsphere. If you think you can make one that's better, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) your .gifs! I'll repost my three favorites and send the creators a copy of the Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook... which I seriously need to get into Bolton's hands. There has to be a way.
