You can always count on the Internet to entertain you with its ability to turn an already awkward situation into something downright creepy and hilarious – thanks to the wonderfully wicked power of memes. And that’s exactly what happened to John Travolta.
During the 87th Academy Awards, he had a rather awkward moment when he tried to greet Scarlett Johansson with a kiss.
This red carpet moment stole the show – before Neil Patrick Harris, the host, even got started on the actual thing. And because of the glorious look on Johansson’s face, Travolta got quite a lot of heat on social media. It didn’t help that he relived his Oscar flub with Idina Menzel by not letting go off her face.
Naturally, people starting thinking of dear ol’ John as some kind of necessary evil – you know, sort of like Dirty Uncle. And then, things got a little creative once Photoshop got involved.
They sent Travolta on a journey through time.
Here he is, visiting the Big Apple.
This came from the time he visited Russia.
He wanted to party.
Especially with his pal Tom.
And Kanye too.
But of course, no one loves Kanye more than Kanye himself, so this happened.
Then things got a bit wild.
Travolta's own Hairspray character showed up to tell him that Grease was decades ago, and this is how we like to dance now.
Finally, Joe Bidden turned up, to show him exactly how to awkwardly kiss the ladies.
The '80s heartthrob is no longer a reason for us to pine over his “Summer Loving” days. Now he’s officially a serial face kisser.
