Travolta pulls out classic Grease moves for Fallon and it’s like nothing has changed

The year 2018 marked the 40th anniversary of Grease. The 1978 musical romantic comedy is considered to be one of the most successful musicals of all time. For example, its soundtrack is one of the best-selling movie soundtracks ever. It starred John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

Paramount released Grease on 4K Ultra HD, and Travolta went a step further to make everyone remember the movie on its 40th birthday. Famous Danny Zuko appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show and tried to teach Fallon how to dance. Their attempt to recreate the legendary hip swirl is hilarious.

Dressed in a dark three-piece suit, Travolta looks more mature, but his moves are still on point.

The T-Birds leather jacket might be long gone, but we would recognize Zuko’s face any day. Four decades have passed by, and we still remember the end of the movie when Travolta and Newton-John dance to “You’re The One That I Want.”

Fallon begins the conversation with numerous compliments, saying that Travolta turned out to be a phenomenal singer, actor, and dancer.

You can see that Travolta is blushing, but he’s happy to see that so many people still cherish Grease. We loved seeing Fallon’s enthusiasm, and it’s clear that he’s a genuine fan of the movie.

So, what exactly are the Four Corners?

Of course, you can’t talk about Grease without mentioning some of Travolta’s iconic dance moves. That’s how he and Fallon tackled the ending scene, and Travolta said, “Four Corners.” Fallon was visibly confused, so the Saturday Night Fever star proceeded to explain what he meant.

“Like in Pulp Fiction, I grew up with all these novelty dances. So in Grease, they needed a step for “You’re the One That I Want” at the end. So I said, ‘Well, we used to do the four corners, why don’t we do that?’ So the choreographer said, ‘Show it to me, and I did.”

Clearly, Jimmy Fallon wasn’t going to let John go without a proper, live demonstration of the move.

The 64-year-old Travolta was more than happy to jump on his feet and show everyone what he’s made of.

The music went on, they waited for the perfect moment, and bam. We were teleported back to the 70s, and Danny Zuko has still got the moves. Travolta confidently shows off his fancy footwork and the massive round of applause blasts in the studio.

John is still in shape, and his dance is simply amazing. It felt so great seeing him recreate the popular move all over again, after such a long time.

Meanwhile, Fallon was having a lot of fun, but he was struggling to follow the dance.

We think that Fallon was awestruck, and that is why his legs didn’t listen to him. He was too busy admiring Travolta, who, for a moment there, looked as if he didn’t age a day.

Who could blame you, Jimmy?! We were equally amazed to see Travolta enjoying himself so much.

“When people watch this, they just get happy.”

That is how Travolta describes the timeless movie, adding that it’s a classic that “keeps on giving to each new generation.”
