Zac Efron's "High School Musical" Dad Wished Him Happy Thanksgiving And Everyone Made The Same Joke

Get your head in the game, Coach.

Posted on

Last Thursday, the Americans of the world celebrated Thanksgiving. I'm assuming they did this by putting raw turkeys on their heads and dancing around, as is documented in the sacred gospel, Friends.

Of course, plenty of celebrities shared their Thanksgiving celebrations on social media, including Zac Efron, who shared this photo of himself lounging in a pool. As you do!

And who showed up in the comments of Zac's post? None other than his biological father*, Bart Johnson, aka the iconic Coach Bolton from High School Musical.

E!

*Actually Zac Efron's biological father is David Efron. All credit to David.

Bart was just there to wish Zac a happy holiday. Cute!

But, of course, no one could hold back making the same joke. Because Zac is NOT Bart's brother.

Honestly, I feel like Coach Bolton needs to get his head in the game on this one.

Don't worry, though — he saw the error of his ways, and corrected himself pretty quickly.

Of course, people loved it.

And assured Bart there was no hard feelings for his mistake. After all, we're all in this together.

Now... High School Musical 4, anyone?
