No deal. Derived from the arm crossing in the game show to indicate 'no deal' and the Olivia Newton John video clip Xanadu showing the same arm crossing as part of the dance.
Are the Eagles going to win the flag this season? Xanadu Mate.

One of the 10 worst movies in History.
I realized that Olivia's ass was way too flat.
The Broadway musical based upon the 1980s movie with Olivia Newton-John. Playing at the Helen Hayes Theater, Xanadu tells the story of an artist (Sonny Malone) who is saved by a Greek muse (Clio/Kira) who appears out of the chalk mural he is creating. Together, they create great art: a roller disco named Xanadu. The OBC stars Cheyenne Jackson, Kerry Butler, Jackie Hoffman, Mary Testa, and Tony Roberts, to name a few.

movies ever made. An absolute waste of time, film, money and effort. It was a total dud and a bomb during the summer of 1980. The story line was unbelievably stupid
. It was possibly the worst movie ever released to public cinemas until that exalted status was taken by "Sibling Rivalry
" ten years later. It starred the Aussie Olivia Newton-John
as a "muse", can U dig it?
But it gets worse from there, much worse. About the best thing about this flick is the historical fact that the action that occured during the music clips foretold the emergence of MTV
the following year. The soundtrack ain't too bad, however. Olivia scored a big hit with "Magic
", another one with "Suddenly" (with Cliff Richard
), and the title track with the "Electric Light Orchestra
The druggiest, rollerskatingist, movie ever. With the Australian girl.
Xanadu has changed my life.
I know can no longer see colors.
