Back in July, Zac Efron decided to “bust” his grandpa out of the nursing home he was at so the two could watch the Euro cup together.

In a video posted to Efron’s Instagram, you can hear the High School Musical actor say, “I’m gonna bust grandpa out of here” right before he is seen “sneaking” into the nursing home, stealing a key, and wheeling his grandfather out of the building.

Efron ended the video by saying “Grandpa is better at acting than I am”, clearly showing his fans that this entire thing was staged, and the nursing home, in fact, allowed Efron to take his grandfather out of the nursing home for the afternoon.
