Zac Efron pole danced on last night's epsiode of The Graham Norton Show while he was promoting his new movie Baywatch. Ok, well maybe we can't really call it "pole dancing" per se, but he DID show off his ridiculous upper body strength by holding himself up horizontally while rocking out to Flo Rida's "Low" in front of a live studio audience in London.
A Pole Photoshoot
It all started when Graham Norton called Efron out on a photo he saw in a magazine where a shirtless Zac Efron is seen doing the pole trick on a parking meter. Norton assumed that Efron could do the stunt again on his show, and judging by Efron's genuine look of surprise about what was going to happen, we don't think the Baywatch actor knew ahead of time.
Efron didn't think Norton was serious at first, but when he turned around and saw the pole off to the side of the set, he first wanted to inspect that it was safe. He asked who had tested it, to which Norton responded "We're not sure of her name." Everyone seemed more excited about what was going to happen except for Efron, but he was a trooper and started jamming to the music as the audience cheered him on.
Along with Graham Norton, Tom Cruise was also super impressed by the stunt. After he walked back over to the couch, Efron asked them if he got flat, wanting to know if he had done the trick well enough, and Cruise agreed with Norton that it was even better than the photoshoot!
Watch Zac Efron's Pole Trick
Efron admitted that he was just really glad that he could still do the stunt! We guess he hasn't tried it out in a while... Maybe Graham Norton should have dropped him a hint before renting a pole for his studio?
