Grease star John Travolta was at Italy’s Sanremo, their biggest music event of the year, featuring performances and TV trashing. He was asked to recreate the “You Never Can Tell” scene dance from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction. However, things took an ugly turn as he made for the stage.

John Travolta was visibly offended by what ensued but managed to do a duck dance that sent millions of viewers into hysteria. Although RAI seems to have footage or evidence of that moment pulled from their social media or TV, there was outrage online from people who considered it “embarrassing.”

After performing the moves from Pulp Fiction, John was led into the crowd to the tune of Bees Gees’ “Saturday Night Fever” and then out of the theater into the cold, where he had to learn the dance to an Italian children’s song about a dancing duck called “Il Ballo Del Qua Qua.”

John returned to the stage looking confused and threw away the duck-themed orange hat he was handed for the performance. Regardless, he did his best and danced to the bizarre tune while the audience watched with mixed reactions.

The show’s co-presenter, Amadeus, claimed that John “was aware of everything and agreed on anything we did beforehand.” However, he admitted that the actor looked unexcited and the performance was below expectation.

Co-presenter Fiorello described the moment as “one of the most terrifying gags in TV history.” Like Fiorello, many showgoers and online viewers were furious as well, with remarks like “humiliating” and the like flooding social media. On the other hand, John thought his hosts to be “adorable” and has yet to respond to the backlash.
