The “High School Musical” phenomenon was one of those things that, even when it was at its peak, already seemed ripe for parody. It’s no surprise, then, that the folks at Bad Lip Reading have finally turned their sights to the franchise that made Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale household names.
Zap2It has your first look at clips from the upcoming special, “Bad Lip Reading and Disney XD Presents: High School Musical,” airing July 11 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
The top-secret BLR creator — whose identity remains a public secret, so it may or may not be Banksy — reportedly received many requests to create an installment around Troy Bolton, Gabriella Montez and the rest of the gang. But of course, in the BLR version they are known as Lumpkinella and Chorky, surrounded by baby sheep and bouncy ball dances.
Speaking of dancing, don’t be surprised if your toes start tapping to “Stick to the Status Quo,” a song from the production that is sure to leave you banging on furniture and walking around tables for no reason.
