It’s been a while since we’ve heard much about 90s singing sensation Michael Bolton, but now the crooner is back on the scene, and we’ve got the, er, “scoop.”

Bolton is the latest celeb to appear in a Funny or Die video, and he’s doing it all for cats. In the video (below), the singer is shown stepping away from his glamorous life of wealth and women to reconnect with nature. He gets an assist from Cedar, Pine and Corn, a folk group who like to sing about cats using the litterbox.

He encounters the musicians while seeking solace from his “Michael Bolton Lifestyle.” In the clip, Cedar, Pine and Corn teach Bolton how to reconnect with nature by planting, trees, eating trail mix, whittling…and wearing ugly sweaters.

It may seem like a weird premise, but it’s all for a good cause.

The video is part of a partnership with Tidy Cats, which recently launched its Pure Nature litter, a 99.9% natural, eco-friendly litter derived from cedar, pine and corn.

According to Tidy Cats, this new, “alternative” litter is “made with corn cob by-product sourced from seed corn production, and cedar and pine recycled from construction, furniture, and window manufacturing whenever available.” It’s mostly dust-free, and supposed to be better for the planet and your pets.
