"Photoshop!" they said. "Smoke and mirrors trickery!" Yeah? Well, get a load of Old Timey Travolta. Who's laughing now, hm?
Available on eBay for a comparatively reasonable $50,000, this ambrotype was taken "around 1850," the description states, and features the image of a young man who bears a striking resemblance to middle-aged John Travolta. The seller eschews vampire lore, however, postulating instead that the actor might perhaps be a wormhole-hopping captain of the S.S. Xenuprise:
For those of you who don't know, John Travolta is a Scientologist and many Scientologists believe in a type of reincarnation. Of course Time travel can't be ruled out as well.
True, it can't. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to hop into my own time machine, set it to a few years ago, and kill whoever greenlit Old Dogs and Season of the Witch.
