From Baywatch to breaking out old people

Everyone loves Zac Efron, albeit for entirely different reasons. But the 33-year-old has touched the hearts of fans when he, alongside his brother, broke their grandfather from his retirement home. There is only one occasion that calls for such a covert and dangerous mission, watching the Euros, of course!

“We’re coming, Grandpa!” writes Efron.

The following scene resembles a movie in itself, sneaking past security, swiping a key card, and combat rolling across the halls of the retirement home. Dylan Efron, who pegs himself as an adventurer, is also a producer on his brother’s show. With both brothers busy off saving the planet, it comes as no surprise their grandfather is overjoyed to see them.

His grandfather was in his wheelchair ready, putting on a baseball cap and exclaiming, “Let’s get out of here.”

Efron has most recently been living in Australia, though not how many celebrities would choose to live. Instead of staying in lavish resorts, Efron has immersed himself in local culture.

“Only take what is needed and live with a generous spirit— to be more, one must give more. Lessons I’ve learned from the people of Masig Island.” Zac Efron

His show Down to Earth, now streaming season one on Netflix, sees the actor journey across the globe with a few celebrity guests along the way. He explores ideas of sustainability, ecology, culture, and wellness. The series is filmed across the globe, starting off in Iceland and then journeying to France, Costa Rica, Sardinia, Lima, Puerto Rico, London, and Iquitos.

“Actor Zac Efron journeys around the world with wellness expert Darin Olien in a travel show that explores healthy, sustainable ways to live,” reads the show’s description.

Season Two of the show is currently in post-production and is expected to start off in Australia.
