John Travolta's Famous Movie Lines Get Spoofed In Parody Following Last Night's Oscar Flub
By Eric Eisenberg 12 months ago
When you make a funny mistake in front of a lot of people, it's only natural that people are going to rib you for it. That's exactly what John Travolta is going through right now. At the Academy Awards last night, the star was on stage to introduce the musical performance of Frozen's "Let It Go" by Idina Menzel, but accidentally called her "Adele Dazeem." You can watch it below, courtesy of Eric Stonestreet's Instagram account:
As a result, the star has been the subject of some light mockery this morning, which includes a new article up on Funny or Die that re-imagines some of the classic lines from Travolta's most memorable movies. Included, of course, is Pulp Fiction:
and, of course, Grease:
They are weirdly funnier to say out loud, and there are plenty more where that came from over on Funny or Die.
In case that's not enough for you, we also have option B, which takes you into a bit of a fantasy. You're up on stage at the Oscars ready to perform. John Travolta is at the mic ready to introduce you. What does he call you? Well, in my case it would be "Erin Andrenson." This new identity has come courtesy of a new name generator over at Slate that will Travoltify your name in a matter of seconds.
I will say that part of me feels a bit bad for Travolta, as last night was actually kind of a rare big sighting for the actor. Last year his only movie role was with Robert De Niro in Killing Season - which never made it to more than 12 theaters - and before that his last two titles were 2012's Savages and 2010's From Paris With Love. Maybe Quentin Tarantino will somehow work some of his magic again and bring back the Travolta that we used to love. Until then, let's just hope that he can laugh at himself about this and be a part of the joke instead of being the target of it.
