During Sunday’s Oscars, Travolta introduced singer Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazeem.” Well, he mumbled it more than anything, proving once again that you’re no one until the star of Saturday Night Fever and Face/Off mispronounces your name during Hollywood’s most prestigious awards show.
That got the folks at Slate thinking…how would Travolta mangle other names? Thus, the John Travolta name generator was born.
