John Travolta Is a Vampire, Not a Scientologist, Thank Goodness

John TravoltaJust one week after that creepy photo claiming to be Nicolas Cage from Civil War times surfaced on eBay, another old photo has coincidentally emerged to prove that even more celebrities among us are really just walking dead people. A weathered, sepia-toned photo of a man who looks remarkably similar to actor John Travolta had been put up for sale on eBay, raising the suspicion that he, too, is a vampire. Not this old People cover at right from the box in my basement, but a really old photo.

Don't bother trying to search for it; like the Cage photo, it mysteriously disappeared from the auction site. All that remains is a message box that tells you the "listing has been removed." Oooooh ....


But luckily some websites were quick to grab the photo before it vanished so you can see the John Travolta vampire photo here.

I will admit the Nic Cage photo was intriguing and fun to look at. It even made the fantastical part of my brain delight in the possibility for a split second before sanity kicked back in and I figured it was just a guy who looked like him. Or some very clever Photoshopping.

But now another vampire photo? Bo-ring. Time to come up with something new to draw attention, K, photographer fraudster guys? The Travolta seller's description is not on the site anymore, either, but word on the street has it that the photo was reportedly taken in the year 1860. Apparently the photographer is not only brilliant at Photoshop, he's also a very good writer and probably worked in advertising because he wrote the description like he genuinely believes this product is what he says it is: evidence that Travolta is either a time traveller or has been reincarnated, which is a strong belief of Scientologists.

The photo was selling for the bargain price of $50,000 ... with free shipping! But alas, we missed our chance.

Anyway, I'm sure John Travolta is laughing over the whole thing just like Nic Cage probably did. And on the bright side, being called a vampire is a lot better than being called a Scientologist.

Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive. Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' aliiiiive, ahhiiivvvve, aaah-ivvve ...

Did you click to see the photo? Does it look like John Travolta?
