John Travolta Took a Selfie with a Random Dude at Planet Fitness & We Have Questions — PHOTO
Where to begin? Let's add that to the list of questions this bizarre photo and story raises. For those who haven't heard, there is an interesting, to say the least, photo of John Travolta without his wig being circulated. Sounds odd, right? Well, it is, but that's not the only strange part. Let me explain. Apparently, the man in the photo with Adele Dazeem, I mean, Travolta, ran into the actor at 3 a.m. at Planet Fitness. Both went to the gym in the early morning, Travolta approached the man, they chatted, and hung out. OK...
The man revealed his story via Reddit, where he added,
I thought I was at the gym by myself at 3am, then this guy comes up to me and introduces himself.
What else happened? According to Gawker, the man who met Travolta said, in a comment that has since been deleted, that "John approached him and asked if he was married, if he had kids, what he did in his spare time, and then started talking about his private jets. He said they talked for a while."
No word if that's what the original comment said, because it's now been deleted, but we can go ahead and add that to the weirdness of the story.
There is just so much to talk about when it comes to this photo. Travolta, you've done it again. So, with that said, here are nine questions this now viral photo raises.
1. Who goes to the gym at three in the morning?
Seriously, why would anyone go to the gym at that time, all alone, when it's dark out, and talk to a complete stranger? First, yes, I know Travolta isn't really a "stranger," but the other guy is, and it's just plain odd. Second, who is crazy enough to give up sleep to exercise at 3 a.m.? I understand if you can't sleep, but that's bonkers to get up that early to work out.
2. Why does John Travolta wear a wig?
Maybe he wants to look young and thinks that's the best way to "stay alive?" Get it? Or, maybe he wants to embody Danny Zuko and keep putting grease all up in his fake hair?
3. Does he look better or worse without his fake hair?
I have to say I prefer Travolta bald. That wig is just ridiculous. Embrace the Mr. Clean look, John!
4. Was this man creeped out by Travolta approaching him while they were all alone at the gym?
If Travolta did really approach this man, was he creeped out at all? I get that Travolta isn't really a "stranger," since he's famous. However, he still really is, because most of us don't know him personally. Apparently, this man felt safe enough to take a selfie with him.
5. What did these two really talk about?
Did they truly talk about private jets and their lives? Or, did they talk about exercise routines, Adele Dazeem, and that horrible Christmas song with Olivia Newton John?
6. Did they exchange phone numbers?
Since it appears that these two got to know one another, do you think they exchanged numbers to keep in touch? Or was it just a "one night stand" type thing?
7. Did they end up working out?
Did any type of exercise happen at all in between the chatting and selfie taking? Now, I want to know about Travolta's fitness routine. Or do I?
8. Better yet, did they work out side by side and keep chatting?
If they did work out, there's always a chance they worked out together, kept chatting, and made a night out of this random encounter. Did they help each other stretch? Did they give each other workout tips? Did they dance to burn off calories?
9. When's the movie being released?
What a good plot for a movie: One evening at three in the morning, a man enters a Planet Fitness to get his work out on. Then, out of nowhere emerges a strange man who wants to talk and take a selfie. Just who is this wig-less creature? It is none other than John Travolta. Dun dun dun!
Thank you, strange man and John Travolta, for letting me take part of my day to dissect this photo, story, and whether Travolta looks better bald.
