John Travolta wasn’t on the Oscars stage thirty seconds on Sunday evening, but the internet has managed to get a good two days out of the joke... and it’s still running.

The actor took to the stage to introduce ‘Frozen’ actress Idina Menzel for her performance of the Oscar-winnig song ‘Let It Go’.

After a gushing speech about what a fantastic lady she was, it came to the point where Travolta would have to say her name. And he failed.

“Please welcome Adele Dazeem,” he muttered.

Footage of the actor’s onstage blunder has gone viral and memes have taken over the internet.

Within hours, several parody Twitter accounts were set up and the internet was trying to discover ‘Adele Dazeem’.
