John Travolta Sex Massage Reenactment - watch more funny videos

It was the masseur's objections heard 'round the world...and echoed soon after by not one, not two, but three follow-up claims: John Travolta allegedly enjoys getting a little hands on with the people who help him.

This Funny or Die video spoof re-enacts the seminal episode that kicked off the recent string of allegations against the actor. This John Doe #1 filed a suit, to be joined the following day by a second masseur who also said Travolta similarly tried to turn a hotel massage into something way, way, way more intimate.

The vid riffs on details in the legal documents ("I've got a big black guy making hamburgers," offers the "busty" Travolta impersonator) and includes a wooden performance by the John Doe #1 masseur impersonator, who comes off a vanilla as Travolta claims sex with his wife Kelly Preston is.

Unfortunately, the real John Doe #1 might be out of luck, since his lawyer has since dropped him: Pasadena-based attorney Okorie Okorocha told the New York Post that John Doe 1 still has a case but he needs another attorney. Okorocha is still representing John Doe 2, who worked at a five-star Atlanta resort where Travolta stayed while filming "Killing Season."
