John Travolta introduced Idina Menzel’s performance of “Let It Go” at the Oscars on Sunday. Or, he should have. Instead, he completely butchered the pronunciation of the super famous broadway star’s name and introduced the super non-existent “Adela Nazeem” (who, by the way, has her own fake Twitter account now).
Even though Travolta’s brain was a huge failure, it did lead to the Travoltified meme. We tried out some of our favourite celebrity’s names to see how a maybe-probably-drunk John Travolta would pronounce them. Grab a slice of pizza and scroll down!
First up is Travolta himself and we think “Jan Thozomas” is a perfect fit. Imagine John Travolta, but as a Spanish pool boy.
“OMG DID YOU HEAR? Julian Butter’s song ‘Baby’ just hit a BILLION views on YouTube!” Ugh, no.
No thank you, John Travolta. B is one of the only artists who can get away with one name – Beyonce is perfect. Brodie is not.
It’s closer than Brodie, but still, get the fuck off the stage.
We’d probably still twerk at a Molly Cozzins show. Miley, take note of this if you ever want to switch things up.
Okay, John’s back to having a cement truck mixer for a mouth.
Wait, Louis is your son, Jan Thozomas!?
Harry could probably pull this one off, but four E’s isn’t ideal.
Another close one on the last name, but throwing a hyphen in out of nowhere is just rude.
Chill on the E’s, Johnny boy!
Jia is a little weak. But Magnus makes up for it. We’re on board with this one.
Sounds like something you’d have to have a prescription for. Going to pass.
Mia Greez has a pretty great ring to it. We’re on the fence.
We’ll accept this one, but only if Niven Scones is constantly giving out free scones. We love scones. Four scones for ANDPOP. And none for you, John Travolta.
Honestly, how do you not know who these people are?
Even farther than Drew’s. Get ready to be played off, Johnny.
Spermons? For real? I think I hear the orchestra, time for you to go.
We deliberated over an official name change for about twenty seconds, but Ashton doesn’t really have the right ring to it. See you never, Jan Thozomas.
