In a commercial inspired by the musical “Grease,” John Travolta pays tribute to Olivia Newton-John…

John Travolta re-creates “Summer Nights” for T-new Mobile’s Super Bowl ad as a tribute to Olivia Newton-John, his co-star in the musical “Grease,” who passed away six months ago. In the commercial, Travolta teamed up with his closest friends and hilarious men Zach Braff and Donald Faison to promote T-service Mobile’s to the tune of his duet with Newton-John from the 1978 flicks.

The song was included in both of those movies.

But do you think it’s a fitting tribute? Watch as Travolta recreates some of the iconic positions and dance routines he performed in his role as Danny Zuko so that you may judge them for yourself.

Although the advertisement for Newton-John only runs for sixty seconds, it is abundantly clear that T-Mobile and Travolta collaborated on it in order to honor the late singer and actress.

Following Newton-passing John’s in August of last year, Travolta turned to social media to memorialize his close buddy. On Instagram, the actor said to Olivia, “My most precious Olivia, you have made all of our lives so much better.”

“You have made an enormous effect. I adore you so much. We’ll get back together with you at some point in the future, so don’t worry. Since the first time I laid eyes on you, you’ve been all mine!

The T-Mobile ad starring John Travolta is the most recent in a string of “Grease” memorials that have surfaced in the wake of Olivia Newton-John’s  passing. An additional illustration: For a Halloween performance, Harry Styles appeared in character as Danny Zuko, singing Newton-classic John’s “Hopelessly Devoted To You.”

In addition, “Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies,” a prequel to the picture that was released in 1978 by Paramount+, will be released this year. Obviously, both the 1978 movie and its sequel, which starred Michelle Pfieffer and Maxwell Caufield, drew their ideas from the 1971 musical.

At one point, the musical held the record for the longest-running performance on Broadway (it currently ranks 16th on the all-time list).

But that’s enough about the past. Check out the video below to see Travolta pay homage to Olivia Newton-John in the Super Bowl ad for T-Mobile.
