Desperate Housewives' Eva Longoria Parker and her husband, San Antonia Spurs guard Tony Parker, have launched a new GREASE contest for fans, the pair announced today.  Fans are challenged to spoof famous scenes from the 1978 movie musical and submit their renditions online via Tony's official website.  The winners, selected by Longoria Parker and Parker, will be flown out to meet the couple and watch one of Tony's games before the 2010 playoffs.

In a clip on his official website, Parker reveals that they chose GREASE as the subject for the videos because "it's Eva's favorite film." 

To jumpstart the contest, Longoria Parker and Parker channelled Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta in a spoof of the famous 'Summer Nights' sequence.  Longoria Parker donned a blonde wig and a bright yellow dress to play Newton-John's Sandy, while her husband parodied the dance moves of Travolta's bad boy Danny Zuko. Check out their rendition below!

All videos must be shot in costume. The deadline for video entries is January 31, 2010.
