John Travolta’s Idina Menzel Flub Could’ve Been Avoided If He’d Watched This Video

Watch John Travolta mispronounce Idina Menzel at the 2014 Oscars.

We know what you’re going through, John Travolta.

Look, we can totally empathize with John Travolta for flubbing Idina Menzel’s name at the Academy Awards last night. Not only because boyfriend allegedly suffers from dyslexia, but, um, let’s just say that at a pivotal moment during an Easter pageant long ago, a certain narrator (and by “a certain narrator,” I mean me specifically) bungled the word “resurrection” into something much, much dirtier… #StillHurts

See? It could’ve been worse, BB! And anyway, Idina didn’t curr — she slayed her performance of “Let It Go,” so no harm, no foul. Plus, @AdeleDazim is basically meme leftovers at this point TBQH.

But we found a super-informative video that could help anyone who’s got to practice pronouncing difficult names, such as “Kanye West.” So, check out “How To Pronounce Kanye West,” and thank us later. Say it with us: “Scrundy Toobsis.” Easy.

+ Watch John Travolta mispronounce Idina Menzel’s name, check out Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go” performance at the 2014 Oscars, and learn the correct way to pronounce “Kanye West.”
