The advert focuses on how many have taken greater care of their gardens during the  coronavirus pandemic, and allowed each appearing star’s personality to shine through.

After the Travolta father-daughter duo’s appearance, Martha Stewart can be heard saying, “He’s still got it.”

Baker then adds, “Hey, Travoltas, don’t be Tik-ity Tok-ing on my grass.”

In other Grease news, Travolta’s co-star Olivia Newton-John has responded to claims that the film is “sexist”.

“I think it’s kind of silly,” she said. “I mean, this movie was made in the 1970s about the 1950s. It was a stage play, it’s a musical, it’s fun. It’s a fun movie musical not to be taken so seriously.”

The actress added that people  “need to relax a little bit and just enjoy things for what they are” and that she “didn’t see it like that at all – I think it’s a fun movie that entertains people.”

Elsewhere, a TV spinoff is also reportedly in development for HBO Max.
