John Travolta And Olivia Newton-John Reunite to Ruin Christmas
Subscribe to TheFW on
This new Christmas single from John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, which is supposed to be the sequel (song-quel?) to the ‘Grease’ classic ‘You’re the One That I Want,’ has created a bit of a moral dilemma. Is it wrong to think something is totally worthless, even if it’s for charity? Because this is just awful.
The song was written by John Farrar, who wrote ‘You’re the One That I Want,’ but this just isn’t … quite … right. The song itself is pretty cheesy and lame, and the video is not much better.
Granted, why would you want to spend a bunch of money on a video to raise money for charity, but there’s just something weird about hearing the lyrics “making love all night” after *just* watching a father and son reunite in a bus station. On the bright side, we now know what John Travolta’s private airplane looks like. Maybe? Who knows. And yes, that is a wallet chain. Why did nobody tell him to take it off? It’s a mystery.
If you’re feeling charitable, proceeds from the entire album of Christmas music that is probably just like this song go to the Jett Travolta Foundation and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre.
