Zac Efron, Piano God

Zac Efron isn't the first guy who comes to mind when you think "viral video." Or, for that matter, comedy. However, now that he's teamed up with Seth Green and the Robot Chicken guys, your opinion of the hunkiest hunk that ever hunked just might begin to change for the better. In a surprisingly amusing bit that's set to air on an upcoming episode of the Adult Swim fave, Efron takes on the role of "Billy Joel: Piano God" (sorry ladies, it's just a voice-over), which is based on a certain singer-songwriter with a penchant for stealing the life stories of his drinking buddies and working them into song. Oh, and then killing them. It's typically scattershot Robot Chicken stuff, but where else are you going to hear a Disney star singing the line "And I'll put my balls right on your tongue"? Yep, thought so. We almost hate to say this, but after this performance, might it be time to put the High School Musical star on the short list for hosting duties on a future episode of SNL?
