See John Travolta Recreate His Famous "Grease" Dance

It’s electrifying!

john travolta recreated "Grease" moves on Jimmy Fallon.

This week, the world has been actively celebrating the 25-year anniversary of Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, Jurassic Park. But all the hooplah around the pop culture juggernaut has somewhat overshadowed the 40 year (!!) anniversary of another classic film: Grease.

On Wednesday night, a smartly dressed and decidedly svelte John Travolta, 64, appeared on Jimmy Fallon to talk about the movie, and dished on how he came up with the signature, hip swinging movement featured in the end-of-the-movie song, "You're the One That I Want." Apparently, it has a name: the four corners.

"In Pulp Fiction, I grew up with all these novelty dances," Travolta said. "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."

You can see him recreate the moves with absolute perfection starting at 1:18 in the video below:

You can also see him doing the moves back in 1978 at around 3:18 in the video below for comparison. He's still got it!
