Blast from the past! John Travolta showed off his Grease dancing skills more than 40 years after filming the movie.
In the Super Bowl commercial for Scotts & Miracle-Gro, which premiered on Tuesday, February 2, the actor, 66, messed with an iPhone camera and tripod while his 20-year-old daughter, Ella, watched.
“Dad, it’s the red one,” she told the New Jersey native. “The other red one.”
Travolta replied, “I know.” In the next shot, he and Ella did the moves the Golden Globe winner originally performed with Olivia Newton-John. Instead of the original music, though, the father-daughter pair danced to Surface’s “Sunday Best.”
Martha Stewart, Leslie David Baker and Kyle Busch also appeared in the commercial, and the former Martha host, 79, watched Travolta dance with his daughter while watering her plants. “He’s still got it,” Stewart said.
His former Gotti costar died the previous month at age 57 after secretly battling breast cancer for two years. “I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, beautiful and loving as you,” Ella wrote via Instagram in a touching July 2020 tribute. “Anyone who is lucky enough to have known you or to have ever been in your presence will agree that you have a glow and a light that never ceases to shine and that makes anyone around you feel instantly happy.”
