John Travolta and His Daughter Channel "Grease" in a New Super Bowl Ad

The actor and his daughter Ella do some "Tik-ing and Tok-ing" for the big game.

If there are two things that you can count on seeing a whole lot of with Super Bowl commercials, it's celebrities and nostalgia. And the latest Super Bowl ad for Scotts & Miracle-Gro featuring John Travolta and his daughter, Ella Travolta, doing dance moves from Grease is really what the football spots are all about. Because of the product, the commercial features the father and his 20-year-old daughter enjoying their backyard and, as an added bonus, doing Grease-themed TikTok dances.

In addition to the father-daughter duo, the commercial also features TV host Martha Stewart, Office star Leslie David Baker, actor Carl Weathers, NASCAR driver Kyle Busch, and Peloton instructor Emma Lovewell. When Stewart catches the Grease star dancing, she says, "He's still go it!"

Read on to see John and Ella in their new Super Bowl commercial, and to check out a few of the other ads that have already been released ahead of Sunday's big game.

In John and Ella's portion of the Scotts & Miracle-Gro commercial, the former Danny Zuko sets up a smartphone to film him and Ella dancing, and they start doing some moves from "Born to Hand Jive" before breaking into other dances. Instead of the song from the movie, they groove to "Sunday Best" by Surfaces. Baker tells them, "Hey, Travoltas! Don't be Tik-ing and Tok-ing on my grass!" (You can watch the full ad here.)
