John Travolta had a few slightly disconcerting moments at yesterday’s Academy Awards ceremony where he got up rather close and personal with stars Scarlett Johansson and Idina Menzel.
After John famously mispronounced the name of Frozen star Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem” when introducing her onstage at last year’s Oscars, he was this year given the chance to redeem himself as the pair took the stage together.
This time, Idina, who famously voiced the Oscar winning Frozen theme song “Let it Go”, took her turn to pay John back, mispronouncing his name as "Glom Gazino" as she welcomed him to the stage.
"I deserved that," said Travolta as he took his turn to redeem himself by laughing at himself.
It was then that things got a bit bizarre as he awkwardly touched Idina’s face, saying: "But you, my darling, my beautiful, my wickedly talented Idina Menzel … is that right?"
It led to a very awkward moment on stage in front of millions of viewers.
As it turns out though, it wasn’t the first awkward moment John had had that night. Earlier when he walked the red carpet, he leaned in for a kiss with actress Scarlett Johansson which lead to a very awkward photo.
Thanks to social media, the image has since gone viral as the mischief-makers of social media sites Imgur and Reddit have reworked the image into multiple memes.
