I just came across YouTube and saw this video of Taylor Swift and Zac Efron doing a duet and making a song about Ellen DeGeneres on her show.
Apparently, the two came to promote the movie ‘The Lorax’, where they work as animated co-stars (meaning they do the voices for the lead characters in that animated film I have yet to watch). During their guesting, Taylor mentioned that Zac is learning to play the guitar – so they give them a pair of guitars and they do Foster The People’s ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ – and they change the words… and it goes something like this…
‘Every single day, I come on this show
It’s getting weird, getting weird,
All because of Ellen”
Taylor is definitely a better songwriter than Zac. lol. And though they really make a cute couple, they both deny that they are indeed one.
Here’s what Taylor said: “We are not a couple. He’s awesome; we are not a couple though. You hear people get together when they’re shooting movies, co-stars. But not like animated co-stars. You know what I’m saying.”
The video is roughly more than a month old and it already has almost eight million views – it’s doing better than what Taylor had predicted.
