“It’s getting HOT in here, so take off all your clothes,” goes the lyrics of Nelly’s early 2000s hit song, so why are we thinking of it in 2022? Zac Efron! That’s why. The 34-year-old Emmy award-winning actor posted a smoking hot shirtless thirst trap picture on his Instagram to close out 2021, and his 50 million followers are drooling shamelessly. Gone is the cutesy Troy Bolton from the Disney classic High School Musical; now we have Baywatch zaddy, and we can’t complain.

The Transformation We Didn’t Expect

Efron first set the headlines ablaze with his smoking hot body when featured in the Baywatch remake. As if that wasn’t enough to make us all thirsty, he released a string of feel-good comedies, which allowed his character to show off pecs to die for. From Dirty Grandpa to Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, the once child star ruled sexy Hollywood between 2016 – 2017.

Undoubtedly, those roles helped him break out from the Hollywood good boy stereotype and rewrite his narrative. Though he may be done with the glitz and glam of the entertainment industry, Zac isn’t hanging his loyal fans to dry.

Move over Megan Thee Stallion, there’s a new captain aboard who represents the hot boys. Efron’s final post of the last year hit Instagram with a bang - it has over 2 million likes in ten days. Sitting on the edge of an infinity pool in nothing but a swimming trunk, the Extremely Wicked; Shockingly Evil and Vile actor celebrated the entrance into a New Year.

His super-toned upper body is the center of attraction and distraction, as it arrests our attention even though there’s beautiful cloud scenery in the background. Efron looks into the vast pool, and he raises his right hand to pat down his wet hair. Swoon!

'Let’s F**king Go!'

"Aye Aye Cap’n." A man of few words and more action, Efron captions his poolside post “2022 LFG,” meaning “Let’s F**king Go!” He’s pumped and ready for the twists and turns of the New Year, and so are we. As part of his exciting endeavors, he continues his Dubai Adventure Series alongside fellow actress Jessica Alba. The two are having the most fun shooting 10 – 12 minutes commercials for Dubai, and we must commend their expert performances as they transport us into a world of espionage and fun!

No Hollywood, So What’s Next?

While Efron, who has over 51 million followers on his Instagram, complained about Hollywood’s ability to suck the happiness out of a person, he’s not entirely opposed to working in the industry. His Netflix documentary Down To Earth earned him an unexpected Daytime Emmy. The actor joins health guru Darin Olien on eight journeys across the world, exploring life and searching for healthy, sustainable ways to live. He seems content with his new choice, and we love that for him.
