What are Tony Parker, Eva Longoria-Parker, and â€˜Greaseâ€™ doing in the same sentence? Well, Tony and Eva Parker created a â€˜Greaseâ€™ parody videoâ€”see it here.
It appears the NBA star and his â€˜desperate housewifeâ€™ decided to add a little holiday cheer to everyoneâ€™s favorite time of year by filming an absurd amateur version of the â€˜Summer Nightsâ€™ scene of the Travolta classic. Good luck with the fellas in the locker room after this one Tony!
It starts with Tony on the bleachers, sporting a Don King-esque wig where he and his buddies kick the song off. Iâ€™ll admit the editing and audio arenâ€™t half bad, but the dancing reminds me of a blindfolded man making his way down a spiral staircase.
It then cuts over to Eva with her girls sitting at the picnic table. Again, credit is due for the outfits, but not the dancing. As the scene goes on, Tony emulates Travoltaâ€™s Danny Zuko, and Eva Longoria, Olivia Newton Johnâ€™s Sandy Olsson.
So what sparked the idea behind this seemingly random remake? According the Tonyâ€™s website, the film is Evaâ€™s favorite. The post also comes along with a challenge that asks fans to post their own home made â€˜Greaseâ€™ parodies. According to NBA Fanhouse, whomever posts the best parody will win a trip to a San Antonio Spurs game.
Even though musicals tend to set off an uncontrollable compulsion deep within the pit of my stomach to repeatedly vomit, I have to give props to Tony for doing something like this. A lot of athletes feel the need to exude hyper-masculinity, and usually wouldnâ€™t let loose for something like this. Ah, the things we do for love.
