Matt Lauer could barely suppress his gleeful guffaws this morning on the Today show while discussing the Zac Efron condom-drop incident. Then again, how often do you hear celebs talk about safe sex? Just about never? If they have to giggle behind their hands in order to do it, then chuckle away, fellas! “I never had a pocket-checking policy prior to going onto the red carpet before, but now we fully instated one!” a blushing Efron said about his faux pas at The Lorax premiere. He even teased Lauer about uttering the c-word (“condom,” people): “It was really hard for you to say!” Matt then made an incredibly dumb joke about Zac’s “production company.” Jeez, it’s like we’re taking high school sex ed all over again. Except now all our classmates are grown men wearing HD makeup!
That being said, if something so snicker-inducing had to happen at a film premiere, we’re glad it was The Lorax. The entire movie is about being responsible, and what’s more responsible than preventing the spread of STDs? Just about nothing? “It’s a great message to add to the many messages in the film!” Zac joked. We’re sure if the Lorax had been drawn with genitals, he would completely agree.
