The Best of Jorn Tromolto, err, John Travolta

Unless you’ve been barred from any form of social media or human interaction, you know about the wonderfully botched introduction at the Oscar’s. For those who are unfamiliar (or just love watching it as much as I do), here’s John Travolta’s welcoming prelude to “Let it Go,” as performed by IDINA MENZEL.

Note: The video I originally linked was taken down. It has been updated!

Get it together, Travolta. We all screw up, but Adele Dazeem? That isn’t even close! I was forced to watch the Oscar’s on Sunday, so I saw this screw-up in all its live glory. There are reports that John Travolta is dyslexic and misread the teleprompter. I get it. My brother is dyslexic and often mispronounces things when he reads, as well. My personal favorite is when he mixes up “Santa” and “Satan.” However, wouldn’t you know who you are introducing? It’s called practicing. If someone has a name you are unfamiliar with, ask. Don’t take your dyslexic chances and wing it.

As I expected (and prayed for), the internet has reacted in the most spectacular way.

Quite a few twitter accounts were started right after the awards. They have been continuously updated and fabulous. My favorite is @adeledazeem.

 My favorite movie is Freezing.

Adele shouldn’t get all the attention. Give it up for Mr. Tromolto.

this deserves endless reblogs.

This is certainly one of my favorites. After all, Idina Menzel is “wickedly talented.”

Okay, I laughed at this one for a pretty solid amount of time. The second I saw “Bumperstump Cabbagepatch” I burst out laughing.

10 John Travolta Quotes Updated After the 2014 Oscars John Travolta totally nailed his introduction of Idina Menzel (aka Adele Dazeem) at the Oscars last night. What if he’d delivered his most famous movie lines the same way?

Funny or Die updated  some of John’s best quotes after the Oscar’s. You can find all of them here.

Elsa is not amused.

So, I just made this after remembering Travolta failing at the name Les Miserables last year. I couldn’t resist.

You would think that Travolta would have learned to rehearse his introduction after botching the name of the well-known musical last year. I’m seeing a pattern.

I’m talking to you, John Travolta.

“Maybe if I say it really fast, no one will notice.” -The Mind of Travolta

Bonus! There is a website that will “Travoltify” your name. You may call me Corey Pay-ne.

I think the moral of the story is to practice when you will be speaking in front of a live audience, as well as millions of viewers. I certainly hope that John Travolta can laugh at himself. But if not, we’ll just have to do it for him.

  1. Oh my goodness, this post cracked me up! I loved “It’s called practicing.” um, yes, and since you’re an actor, it’s also called your job. Reading lines and then saying them over and over until you get them exactly right – John, kitten, you literally get paid to do THIS. EXACT. THING.
