John Travolta Gives This ‘Grease’ Song a Totally New Spin in 2023 Super Bowl Commercial—Watch the Clip

PureWow 2/11/2023 Joel Calfee

Are we back at Rydell High School? Not exactly, but John Travolta did just reprise the song “Summer Nights” from his hit movie Grease for a new Super Bowl ad...and he gave it a completely new spin along the way.

The 68-year-old actor appears in a new spot from T-Mobile, where he promotes the company's home internet service. In a surprise turn of events, he's joined by two of the stars from the TV show Scrubs—Zach Braff and Donald Faison. Check out the musical clip below.

In the video, Travolta sings about his home internet struggles to the tune of “Summer Nights”: “Home internet, what a pain in the a**.” Then, Braff and Faison jump in, with Braff singing, “Try T-Mobile, it sets up so fast.”

As the pair begin to explain why Travolta should switch his service, the New Jersey-born actor uses a refrain from the original Grease track: “Tell me more, tell me more.” Throughout the rest of the song, Braff and Faison dance and snap, while Travolta pulls out a few of his classic Danny Zuko poses.

“Summer Nights” was originally sang as a duet between Travolta and his late Grease co-star, Olivia Newton-John. The track was a hit, reaching the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and it was placed at #70 on AFI's list of 100 Years...100 Songs.

Now, we're glad to see Travolta keeping the spirit of the song alive. This ad is just one of many star-studded commercials that we'll be looking forward to at this year's Super Bowl (not to mention, we're counting down the minutes until Rihanna hits that stage). Oh, and we're excited to see some football too.

You certainly haven't lost your groove, John.
