While we were not particularly keen on Scarlett Johansson‘s ultra-tight kelly green gown from the 2015 Oscars, there was one thing that she did that was absolutely wonderful: give John Travolta the evening’s best side eye after he swept in to kiss her on the red carpet. Leave it to the woman who can get secretly married to sneak in the perfect brow-raising moment.

Ouch, Travolta! Did you really think it was a good idea to go up to a new mother, grab her stomach, and kiss her on the cheek without asking permission first? On the bright side, there were tons of cameras around, so naturally, as all good moments in awards shows do, this interaction spurred plenty of hilarious Photoshop memes on Reddit’s epic /r/photoshopbattles board. Bad for Travolta, good for the rest of us.
This Biden/Travolta/ScarJo kiss train is brought to you by Reddit user MyFirstNewAccount, and it literally made me spit out my coffee when I saw it.
This next one by hoodmizzou features Travolta kissing his Hairspray alter-ego, as one does.
I have no idea why, but this one by WeWeedy is probably my favorite. I can’t stop singing “Gayfish” by South Park Kanye.
Fortunately, it looked like the two were on better terms later:

Or at least, ScarJo was more willing to hug it out when she was not in the middle of having her photo taken by dozens of photographers. Wait ’til the relevant celebrities are done before you creepily smooch their cheeks, John.
