Plot / Description

This commercial for Optimum features Michael Bolton, who has a phone number just one digit off from the number for Optimum. People keep mistakenly calling Michael Bolton, looking for a great deal on TV, phone and internet. Michael Bolton is shown at his home, playing the guitar, jumping on a trampoline, washing his dog, cooking in the kitchen, all while people call him accidentally. Michael Bolton is tired of people calling him instead of Optimum. Don't call Michael Bolton. Please. Don't call Michael Bolton. 
 
Optimum Says, "Please Give Michael Bolton His Life Back. Please."
