It was a very joyous day when both Zac Efron and Ryan Reynolds ended things with their respective partners on the exact same day. I mean, what did Vanessa Hudgens and Scarlett Johansson have that I don’t? Well, one’s like a million feet taller than me (Okay, 2 inches but then she adds heels and I just can’t do that) and the other one well…she was in High School Musical, I guess. That’s better than me…I guess. Why was I so happy? Because Zac and Ryan happen to be two of my favorite Hollywood heart-throb. That’s why when I stumbled across an article called Want to See Zac Efron’s Diary?–Warning! It’s Filled with Hilarious Confessions, I had to find out what was gong on. Could Zac have really let out all of his personal secrets? Was it possible that the key to getting to Zac was now public information? Oh how I wished.
No such luck. But, that doesn’t mean it was worthless. It’s about a new series on YouTube coming to us from the creators of Real House Wives of South Boston. I was a little weary to sit have to sit through each video but it was worth it (They are all around a minute a piece so it’s not that bad and there’s only 5 of them. Plus, it’s still Zac…sort of).
The guy who plays Zac does a really good job. I love the voice they do for him. It’s somewhere between a Hollywood mimbo, a surfer, and Rachel Zoe (I can totally hear him saying, “Oh my gawd! That is bah-nan-ahs!”) The first video covers Zac having an almost near death experience. He was attacked by a mob of teenage girls (And some middle-aged dude). Okay, well, I’m going to guess this isn’t far from the truth. I mean, have you seen his face and that body? Mobs and mobs of girls have wanted to attack him with love since we first saw him in High School Musical (Did anyone else root for Troy and Sharpay? Because Gabriella really annoyed me. Hmmmm, not far off from her in real life). Plus, I’m pretty sure it’s quite possible to be killed by a mob of adoring fans accidentally. If the paparazzi can cause stars to get into car accidents (happens on Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood next week), then why can’t a horde of teenage girls unintentionally cause the death of their crush? I’ve seen crazy masses of these girls at the Jonas Brothers World Tour concert back in 2009. Trust me, it’s not just possible; it’s something that is going to be the fate of one of these hotties one day (Seriously, there were girls in wedding dresses just in case Joe, Nick, or Kevin wanted to jump down from the stage and run off to AC with them).
The second video is actually about a run-in with the paparazzi. What made me laugh more than any of the obvious jokes in this video was the fact that the guy who plays Zac does a pose that I’ve seen real Zac do in a million photos. I’m not sure if he realized it and did it on purpose or not but I cracked up. We all know the pose. The one wear he’s standing there looking all cute with his elbow bent in the air and his hand on the back of his neck. He’s usually looking down with his head off to the side in this pondering manner. Mmmm, it’s a good pose. Now, in reality, I would be heartbroken to find out that real Zac is so desperate for attention that he intentionally keeps the cameras around but that doesn’t make the video not funny. I would kill to get real Zac posing on a car like that. And you know what would make is better? If it were a nice car (not whatever it was fake Zac was on top of). Let’s go for Zac Efron shirtless on top of a black 1967 Impala (Hey, Glamour, GQ, Cosmo, or any of you other magazine! There’s an idea for your next shoot. I’ll buy that issue for sure).
Okay, now the third video. I didn’t find this one all that funny. Zac goes to a medicinal marijuana place and smokes some. It goes through some of his thoughts while he’s high and then he gets the munchies and eats some protein shake powder. I didn’t laugh. I laugh more when I’m around people who are actually high. Why? Because they are a lot funnier than this video. Of course, I’ve had some of my deepest conversations with my stoned friends as well. There’s not much to say about this video because the others were better and more real. I’m pretty sure if real Zac was high, he wouldn’t be that pathetic. No one’s that pathetic stoned–except for maybe Miley Cyrus.
The fourth video was a lot better. I love the character in the new movie role he’s playing: “a super handsome farm boy who’s ripped from his barber shop quartet when he’s drafted into World War II.” Yep, that’ definitely a Zac Efron role. And sadly, I’d probably see it just because he’s in it (Really. I’m not even remotely a Nicholas Sparks fan but there’s a chance that I’ll go see the new one just for Zac…or at least, watch it when I can get the DVD). Obviously, though, that part was made for girls like me. Farm Boy: check. Soldier: double check. I would get to see Zac on a farm AND fighting a war! I’ll just give my money to Regal now. The one thing from this video that lost my attention was in Madame Tussaud’s. I never realized it (and maybe it was just the angle) but the wax figure of Zac has some noticeable flaws (okay, if you’re as weird as me and notice them). His nose wasn’t right. It was really upturned or something. And he seemed too skinny. Zac’s no skinny boy. He’s all muscular and whatnot.
Other than being confused at why he was playing 2-on-1, the fifth video was by far my favorite. I love that he goes to the basketball court in his Troy uniform and then does a High School Musical dance, thinking it’s how to play basketball. It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Of course, I’m not sure I would have used a HSM3 song. I would have played Get Your Head in the game. I love that song. Then maybe play Fabulous from HSM2–best HSM song ever. And the fact he teaches the thugs “dance basketball” at the end. OMG! What’s sad is I totally know some basketball players like that who would be totally starstruck if Zac Efron came around…and then they’d totally want to learn some of Troy’s dance moves.
I can’t wait for the next installment in the series. It’s up there with Epic Rap Battles of History on my YouTube list now. Now, if only we could get some real secret confessions from Zac. Maybe it’s time to put on my Woodward and Bernstein hat and dig up some good Zac information.
