If you want to feel all warm and fuzzy this holiday season, check out the new music from Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton and Barry Manilow. If you'd rather feel a bit nauseous, then check out the new music video for the song "I Think You Might Like It" by "Grease" co-stars John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, who have teamed up to make a Christmas CD this year.

At least that's according to just-in reviews of the piece -- part of the iconic on-screen couple's CD titled "This Christmas."

Not only are reviewers calling the cover of the CD "the worst," but the music video released earlier this week has been panned for being odd, bizarre and just plain creepy.

The New York Daily News called it "cheesy." The Frisky called it "absurd" and "ridiculous" and a waste of 3 minutes and 12 seconds. Guardian columnist Sali Hughes proclaimed on Twitter: "This has blown my mind. Oddest video ever."

Travolta and Newton-John often have talked about the close friendship they've retained since starring as Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen in "Grease" in 1978 and apparently are delighted to be working together again.

"My desire was to make 'This Christmas' an intimate album, not something too ostentatious or showy," 58-year-old Travolta said in the press release for the album.

The album also features guest appearances by a wide range of artists including Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Tony Bennett and Kenny G.

But no doubt the music video is sparking a strong reaction.

VH1 published a list of the 10 most festively bizarre things about the music video that includes: This line: "Then we're going to hide away, making love all night/And we can try tomorrow watching 'It's A Wonderful Life'."

But E! Online published its own list of 12 things it loves about the "must-watch" video that includes: "That Sandy and Danny haven't lost their groove, all these years later."

So what do you think of the music video? Let us know in comments.
