I mean, I shouldn’t be all that terribly surprised that Disney would be willing to cash in on any audience it could, and given that already universal nature of the high school experience, it seems like the biggest of no-duh propositions.

That probably speaks more to my cultural ignorance than anything — I mean, it’s not like I ruled out the possibility or anything; it wasn’t something that I gave all that much thought to, to be honest — but now the question became “Which one is their Zac Efron?” And then that got me wondering: “Is every nationality gifted with their own Zac Efron? Like the Highlander of pretty boys? Can there only be one?”
And then I wondered what Chinese covers of Queen must sound like and pretty much lost my train of thought.
