Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens Play With Dolls

Betsy Waldman / August 26, 2008

Teen sensations Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens can seem a little too perfect. Unlike ordinary people, the High School Musical stars never seem to sweat under the spotlights.

Sure, Zac has a habit of running away from unwanted public attention, but it’s almost as if these two are not quite human—not robots, exactly, but some kind of finely crafted representation of extremely attractive and talented young adults.

On the surface, this High School Musical promo clip looks like it’s all fun and goofiness. Zac places Vanessa’s entire doll head in his mouth and claims that she makes him feel “like a little girl.”

But there is a deeper message.  Efron and Hudgens are telling Disney once and for all: “We are not a couple of dolls.  And we want to go back to the beach.”
