John Travolta Serenades Socceroos

|

We know just a few things about the Australian World Cup football team. Number one, they are nicknamed the Socceroos, which is adorable. Number two, they got creamed by Germany last weekend, losing 4-0 in their opening game. And number three, they had to endure further embarrassment when John Travolta sang “You’re The One That I Want” to the team during a meet and greet. As far as we can tell, Travolta’s only connection to the soccer team is his Aussie co-star from Grease, Olivia Newton-John, who was absent from the singalong.

Travolta and wife Kelly Preston flew their private jet to South Africa to take in some of the games and hopefully spare the rest of the teams from spontaneous versions of “Greased Lightning” and monologues from Battlefield Earth.
