The Disney Channel movie High School Musical premiered over ten years ago, and launched a then scrawny, shaggy-haired Zac Efron into stardom. Since 2006, Efron has (thankfully) gotten a haircut and grown some abs, and he's now a far cry from the young boy who portrayed Troy Bolton, the star basketball player with a song in his heart and a secret desire to audition for the school musical.

Well, it would seem that Bolton Efron has not forgotten his roots, since he recently uploaded this picture of himself and Anna Kendrick on the set of their new movie Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates along with a caption that may be his way of paying homage to his Disney Channel days.

Twirl,dip & look dead into camera? Anna nailed it- I didn't have my head in the game :) #mikeanddaveneedweddingdates

"I didn't have my head in the game"...? Zac—are you referencing the infuriatingly catchy song "Getcha Head in the Game" from High School Musical, where Troy struggles to take his mind off auditioning for the school's musical while at basketball practice?

You know, the one featuring some complex basketball-ography and a small army of high school dudes chanting "Getcha getcha getcha getcha head in the game!"

See? Basketball-ography.

Whether or not Efron posted HSM-themed caption to make High School Musical fans (there are still High School Musical fans, right?) go crazy or just because it is a totally normal expression that people use, the Internet freaked out like he had turned the clock back to 2006.

Now, obviously people will complain that there is really nothing to report here, and that Zac Efron's Instagram caption is not "news." Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but true fans know—once a wildcat, always a wildcat.
