It seems 2020 is once again trying to break us, but this time it's in the best way possible.
High School Musical legend Zac Efron has returned to screens as the host of a new Netflix series called Down To Earth With Zac Efron. The show, a sort of travel show/environmental documentary hybrid, features Efron roaming some of the Earth's most exhilarating and beautiful locales, from Puerto Rico and Peru to Iceland and France.
But never mind all that because the real focus of the show is Zac out here looking like this.

Yep, Zac Efron is 32 now and has transformed into arguably the hottest daddy in America today and the internet is absolutely losing its mind.
Now don't get the wrong idea, people love the show too. It uses the beloved format of a travelogue show to tackle some of the biggest environmental and sustainability problems facing the world today.
As Efron describes it in Netflix's promo for the show:
"...we are traveling around the world to find some new perspectives on some very old problems... Food, water and energy are all the main staples of modern life... We're going to meet some top eco-innovators to see how change is an inside job."
In The Hollywood Reporter's review, the show even drew comparisons to legendary chef Anthony Bourdain's beloved travel shows.
But on the internet, all of that is basically beside the point.
Most people aren't focused on the show's content because it's been upstaged by Efron's transition from teenage cutie-pie to daddy-vibes beefcake.
