The Super Bowl It is the event in which the most important releases of the year find an essential window to launch their new trailers. It’s also a great space to run extremely expensive ads featuring stars like John Travolta.
Advertisements with film or television motifs are a constant in the Super Bowl. A few days ago we saw the announcement inspired by Breaking Bad and, as we can see, it was not the only one that came this year.
John Travolta has returned to one of his most iconic films, Grease, to get into the shoes of Danny Zuko and try to convince us to change telephone and internet companies.
The T-Mobile company announcement not only features the Grease actor, but also adds two of the stars of the Scrubs series: Zach Braff y Donald Faison.
John Travolta sings Summer Nights again at the Super Bowl
This version of the legendary theme song from Grease is hilarious for the use of the song to promote and hype the benefits of the phone company’s service.
The ad is orphaned with the absence of Olivia Newton-John, of course. The actress and singer she passed away last August 2022 at the age of 73 due to breast cancer.
Whether as a posthumous tribute to his partner or as a lucrative way to return to the character of Grease, John Travolta recalls one of his most beloved films thanks to this Super Bowl ad that adds to other illustrious ones like that of Game of Thrones with the Mountain handing out to advertise light beer.
Grease received an Oscar nomination, although Summer Night would not be the song that would grant him such an honor. It would be Hopelessly Devoted to You the one that opted for the award for Best Original Song.
What do you think of the return of John Travolta as Danny Zuko in this TV spot inspired by Grease?
