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

Are we at Rydell High? Not exactly, but John Travolta did just gift us with a Danny Zuko-worthy performance to the tune of “Summer Nights” from his hit movie Grease for a new Super Bowl 2023 ad—and he gave it a completely new spin along the way.

The 68-year-old actor appears in a new spot for T-Mobile in which he promotes the company's home internet service. In a surprising turn of events, he's joined by two of the stars from the TV show Scrubs—Zach Braff, 47, and Donald Faison, 48. (Check out the musical clip below.)

In the video, Travolta sings about his home internet struggles, lamenting: “Home internet, what a pain in the a**.” Braff and Faison then jump in to complete his line, 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 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 placed at No. 70 on the American Film Institute's list of 100 Years...100 Songs.

We, for one, are 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, tomorrow Feb. 11, 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.
