This past Saturday was a brand new Saturday Night Live with host, teen sensation Zac Efron… or better known as Troy Bolton from the High School Musical franchise. Now I don’t know who owes each other… without Efron, High School Musical wouldn’t have been the phenomenon it turned out to be. At the same time, without High School Musical, Efron wouldn’t have became so popular, which resulted in a supporting role in Hairspray and a starring role in 17 Again. Needless to say, High School Musical will stay in Efron’s life for a long time.
This all makes the following clip so much funnier. For those who never witnessed a High Schoool Musical film (basically if you have no siblings between the ages of 7-15), it’s pretty much Grease, but polished up Disney-style. You know, the whole message to be yourself no matter what the status-quo tries to limit you to, or no matter what your friends think. In the films we have a braniac who likes to dance, a jock who likes to sing, another jock who likes to bake, etc.
