Zac Efron fell over in this hilarious and not-at-all staged photo from the set of Baywatch, which he posted to his Instagram like the self-deprecating bro he is. (Seriously, how does one possible trip while running and wind up in a somersault? We’re betting one of the gags in the film is that Efron’s character falls over during their “sexy” run.)
But regardless of its authenticity, the internet decided to slow-mo run with it, turning “Efron’s Fall” into the new “Strutting Leo.” This Reddit thread under the Photoshop Battles subreddit is full of creative reimaginings of Efron’s little stumble. So now we’re all winners, especially Paramount, which gets free publicity for its upcoming Baywatch film while endearing us to one of its stars. Well played Baywatch, well played.
