Oh my god. I hardly even know what to say about what you are going to experience here. You know the feeling you get during winter’s first snowfall, while you’re cuddled up warm in your home with a cup of spiked hot chocolate, the glow of your holiday something glittering in the window? Or the feeling you get watching a friend open the gift you bought them, knowing that they’re going to be so excited about it? Or the feeling you get, I don’t know, when you are doing some last-minute holiday shopping and you come across something you know someone is going to love and you’re like, “Oh my goodness, they’re going to think I bought this such a long time ago! That’s how perfect it is!” Or the feeling you get when you get an invite to a holiday party that you know is going to be so much fun? Or the feeling you get when you watch a video from two famous people — John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, let’s say — and it is of the exact caliber of any video we would normally feature on Videogum from Joe Nobody, after he recorded a song on the Fruity Loops bootleg he downloaded and gave his cousin’s friend who “makes music videos” $300? This is exactly like that. Oh my god. OH MY GOD.

AHHHHHHH! I THINK I MIGHT LOVE IT! JOHN TRAVOLTA! OLIVA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING! THE FACIAL HAIR! THE PART AT THE END WHERE HE TALKS! THE DANCING THAT THE GROUP OF PEOPLE DO AND HOW THEY SHOULD’VE GIVEN THEM CLEAR DIRECTION AND THEN DONE ANOTHER TAKE! WHEN THE POLICE OFFICER HUGS THE GUY! THE SMILING! THE WORDS! MAKING LOVE! SO GROSS! WALLET CHAIN! I LOVE THIS MUSIC VIDEO THANK YOU SANTA!!!!!!!!!!!! (Via ONTD.)

  1. How did they put the camera so it could follow the moving car? Movie magic I guess.

  2. I feel so vindicated in my hatred of Grease right now

  3. You’d think someone with a private jet could afford better production and a better paint job for his head!

  4. I was NOT expecting country music. Is this their normal genre?

  5. I’m just going to go watch xanadu instead.

    ps- robot john travolta is terrifying.

    • I learned Xanadu is streaming on Netflix a few days ago and got way, way too excited.

    • Xanadu was my favorite movie as a kid. I made my dad buy me the record (you kids can Bing that) of the soundtrack, essentially because I found Ms. Newton-John to be very pretty. The end result was that I became a lifetime ELO fan. I can literally sing the entire Xanadu theme song by heart, and it is one of the only complete songs stored in my head.

      Netflix is the greatest, but just FYI you can get the ‘Magical Edition’ DVD from Amazon for less than $10.

  6. Would a gay man have this manly goatee and wallet chain? -John Travolta

  7. Travolta’s hair is just giving everybody the creeps. He needs to go the Ron Howard route and just put a fucking hat on and keep it on.

  8. I just can’t. I don’t even know how to process this. Between the plane, and the recreation of the dance from Grease, and then the singing. Won’t someone think of the children!?!

  9. Well, looks like they just ruined christmas.

  10. At least now we know what John Travolta would look like as a character from Lazy Town.

  11. all joking aside, any video from The Rapper Formally Known As Krispy Kreme has better production values.

    at some point sometime in the recent past, John Travolta has said “let’s just shoot this in my driveway.”

  12. John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John SUPPORT THE TROOPS.

  13. what did john travolta say to the massuer
    i think you might like it
    lololololol

  14. What a wonderful duet by ONJ and her biggest trans fan!

    • Seriously guys, no disrespect to my trans bros and sisters because I love them, but Travolta has somehow successfully managed to look like a man who was once a woman in the worst way possible.

  15. I know they were going for cutting between the two of them running toward each other until they hug, but Travolta looks so psycho that I totally thought the narrative was him chasing her down but the director had no concept of film composition nor eyeline matching.

  16. WALLET. CHAIN.

  17. This is a good song and all, but let’s all remember the Reason for the Season (Xenu)

  18. And here I thought Just For Men’s commercials couldn’t get any more annoying. Then again, between this video and his actions over the past year, I guess that John Travolta does make a lot of sense as their spokesman, on multiple levels.

  19. I’m not sure who this is a slight against, but Olivia Newton-John is looking A LOT like Christina Aguilera.

  20. Whose idea was it to dress Olivia up as “bad” Sandy?

    Obviously this is just one of MANY question raised by this video, but actually the one that is bothering me the most.

  21. It credits John Farrar at the opening for writing the song…anyone think he is Jay Farrar’s disappointment of a brother?

  22. Congratulations, “Grease 2″! You are now the second-most-cringe-inducing sequel to “Grease”!

  23. The more I think about it, the more I realize they nailed this song. Think of the title..and then think of how many times an older, used to be cool, now out of touch relative handed you a book or a movie and said that.

  24. I no longer want to hear all the horny details, Danny.

  25. jesus, i work at starbucks and i have a better hairdresser than she does

  26. 1:02 – who is that who just landed his big ass plane right in front of my house? could it be John? I am not sure as so many people just fly right up to my front door in their G6, it literally could be anyone.

    1:07 – it is John!

    I hate rich folk.

  27. lol nice car lol

  28. I think you predicted my reaction to your music video incorrectly.

  29. Florida. Of course.
