I had the great pleasure of pranking a radio host in Australia with my John Travolta voice impression recently. I have been working with Southern Cross Austereo's Triple M 104.9 in Sydney for over a year now, doing Donald Trump call-ins for their morning show, "The Grill Team". Great group of people: Gus Worland, Mark Geyer, Matty Johns, Emma Freedman, and Chris Page. They knew I did other voice impressions besides Trump, so they asked if I would call and pretend to do a real phone interview with Gus as John Travolta. "JT" was recently in the news for deciding to retire his personal Boeing 707 passenger jet, and donate it to the Sydney area museum of the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society. You can watch the video below to see and hear how it all went down.
So, my friends Torg & Elliott at QFM-96, a Show in Columbus that I frequently call up with my Trump impression, heard the Travolta prank I did in Australia, and thought that would be the perfect voice impression to prank their news woman, Kristie Kemper. As you'll see, we definitely turned up the awkwardness level a lot. She has talked about watching the Leah Remini doc series on Scientology in the past, and since Travolta was in Ohio shooting a movie there, and the John Gotti movie in Cincinatti, it was the perfect reason to have him on, and then confront her about watching the tv show that bashes Scientology. Here's how that phone prank went down:
