Someone call a lifeguard.
Zac Efron took a hard fall while filming the upcoming Baywatch movie, tumbling head-first into the sand in between co-stars Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson and Jon Bass:
The ultra-chiseled Efron and company were recreating one of the iconic moments of the Baywatch television series—the slow-motion run down the beach.
The team eventually did get the classic shot, with Johnson’s character leading the way while flanked by Kelly Rohrbach, Ilfenesh Hadera, Alexandra Daddario, Efron, and Bass:
We are the reason you feel safe in the water… We are the reason you feel safe on the sand. We are also literally running iconically in slo-motion because apparently that makes everyone's kibbles and bits look sexy. WE ARE #BAYWATCH. #AvengersOfTheBeach #MinusTheCoolSuperpowers #AFamilyFullOfDysfunction #AndBadAssToTheBone MAY 19, 2017. ps – the dude all the way on the end is @thejonbass. He is my brother, a legend and deeply knows karate.
Efron took his fall in stride, posting the pictures on social media and writing what was going through his mind at that moment: “*think cool thoughts*…run cool- hit em with that COOL #Baywatch run…”
Efron still managed to look pretty cool while taking the tumble—having abs like this will do that. After the fall, Efron made time to visit with some Make-A-Wish Foundation kids along with Johnson. Efron posted a photo to Instagram with Johnson while hanging with the kids:
The 28-year-old may need some comfort after taking the spill and splitting with his girlfriend Sami Miró, but at least he has Johnson’s so-called “Avengers of the beach” to help him out.
Baywatch, directed by Seth Gordon, is set for a May 19, 2017 release.
