Hey! Let's say you're a big-time macho man movie star who got to be a big-time macho man movie star by being a big-time macho man in big-time movies. But you've got a problem, because you keep getting slammed with these big-time rumors that are not at all in keeping with your macho man screen persona. What do you do? Well, if you're John Travolta, you team up with your first famous leading lady to record a reunion Christmas album! Because that'll totally make everybody forget about all those crazy dudes and their "reverse massage" stories. Young male masseuses, what? Walkin' in a winter wonderland ... come on, everybody sing! Look, guys, it's Olivia Newton John! I didn't drug her cocoa or anything! (And no, we're not handcuffed together behind those presents.)
Foolproof, dude. Fool. Proof. That is some clever PR right there, Mr. John Travolta. Oh, especially that super-bonus original track ...
Yes, there's a brand new song on this here album, billed as the sequel to "You're the One That I Want" (what that has to do with the birth of Jesus is anybody's guess). And it's called ... "I Think You Might Like It."
I'm just gonna let that sink in for a minute ... I Think You Might Like It.
Ahem. So anyway, we'll all have to wait until November 13 to hear "This Christmas," which I think we all know is destined to become a holiday classic. In the meantime, at least we have this video of John and Olivia, a-singin' and a-dancin' live on stage not so very long ago:
Well. Now that was something you don't see every day, right?
Will you buy John Travolta and Olivia Newton John's Christmas album?
