Buble for Winter Olympics presentation

mbFoxtel has signed singer Michael Bublé to be an official Olympic Ambassador for its Vancouver Olympic Winter Games in February 2010.

Bublé, a Vancouver resident, will feature as part of Foxtel’s Olympic Winter Games reporting team to give an inside running on his home town and commentate on his favourite sport of Ice Hockey. He will host an exclusively produced special titled Michael Bublé’s Canada.

“I am excited about being part of Foxtel’s Olympic Winter Games coverage and I am definitely looking forward to showing off my hometown,” he said.

“The last time I was in Australia, I had people explaining the game of Aussie Rules Football to me. It will be fun to turn the tables and explain our national game to them,” he said.

Foxtel’s Brian Walsh said: “We’re delighted to have secured Michael Bublé, one of the world’s most accomplished and popular performers, to spearhead our marketing and promotion of the Vancouver Olympic Winter Games.”

The Games begin on February 13th, 2010.

    Good. Since I don’t have Foxtel, nobody has to explain Winter Games to me. I won’t even know that Winter Olympics are taking place.

    Buble is fantastic! From a performer to a general spokesperson he has a personality unmatched; hilarious and feels very genuine! I’ve seen him numerous times and everytime is better than the last.
