It’s unfortunate to see famous people forget where they came from and act like they walk on water and poop rainbows. Thankfully, there seem to be more down-to-earth celebs who take the time to really appreciate their fans. And Zac Efron is certainly one of them.
While filming the Baywatch reboot, Efron met a super eager fan who frantically chased the actor down, hoping for a pic. Unfortunately, he dropped and totaled his phone in the process. Thankfully, Good Guy Zac (can we make that a meme?) came to the rescue in the best way possible.
“This is what I love about my fans – when they get excited, but @dopekid_23 actually smashed his phone while chasing me for a snapchat – that’s dedication so I’ma hook you up with a new phone my brother! To all my fans out there holdin it down – love and respect. And be careful with your phones ?,” Efron captioned.
And because not everything in the world has to be awful, it looks like Efron kept his promise. Ahmed T., the fan who broke his phone during the “Snapchat-A-Palooza with Zac Efron 2k16” fiasco, updated people on Instagram that Efron is a man of his word.
He wrote, “This man went out of his way to buy me a brand new phone and allowed me to even walk on set his new movie when you didn’t have to. You acknowledge [your] fans, Brother you have a heart, there is definitely a reason as to why you are who you are.” D’aww. See? He IS Good Guy Zac.
“You don’t understand how this meant so much to me bro,” continued Ahmed. “Last thing on my mind was for you get me a new phone because I ran after [your] car. I knew the risks I was taking. Thank you once again I will never forgot this moment.”
Right after his phone went to the big Apple Store in the sky, Efron and Ahmed shot a quick video.
Besides buying Ahmed a $949.99 phone, Efron let his new pal visit the set of Baywatch and meet Efron’s co-star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Yeah, yeah. Pics or it didn’t happen, I know.
“Ladies & Gentlemen the one and only @therock also another cool dude. I’m grateful for this one in a life opportunity. He was as sh!t. Acts like any regular human being. My dawg drives a regular car just like any of us,” Ahmed wrote.
Seriously, Ahmed had the best — and luckiest — day ever. Who knew a broken phone would lead to such Zac-tastic (sorry) possibilities?
