Remember that time Zac Efron dropped a condom on the red carpet? Matt Lauer sure does.
Efron joined Lauer on the Today Show this morning to promote The Lorax, the Dr. Seuss movie for which he voices the 12-year-old (ha!) protagonist. Lauer dithered a bit to do his due promotional diligence, then got right to the point. “There’s something else that brought a lot of attention to this movie recently, Zac,” Lauer began. “Do you want to take me through what happened [at the premiere]?”
Cut to Efron, who looked adorably uncomfortable (that hair!) before spilling the beans. The best part might be Lauer’s stutter-filled attempted to say the word “condom” on air.
And while Efron may not be heeding Julia’s advice — “Don’t keep condoms in your pocket! The body heat compromises their effectiveness!” — he has instituted a “pocket check” before all future red carpet events.
