Zac Efron Is the New Ryan Gosling: Out With the "Hey Girl" Memes & In With "The Zefron!"

Hey girl, are you sad about Ryan Gosling's (alleged) impending fatherhood? Do you feel like you may never find someone as equally handsome, sensitive, and in tune to your needs? Are you afraid that you'll never get another pep talk as inspiring and heartfelt as all those ones Gosling imaginatively penned to you? Are you wondering if anyone else will have the emotional depth to stare straight through your computer and down into your soul via Internet meme? Are you just not sure if you'll ever find a quality celebrity boyfriend of this caliber ever again?

Well, don't you worry your pretty, slightly delusional, little heads. Because someone has decided to step in and pick up all of Gosling's slack. Take that, "Dad." Anyway, back to the point. There's a new celebrity faux-boyfriend in town, and he's here to ease our poor forlorn hearts.

So, who is this charming, well-bred, magnanimous prince of a human? Well, none other than THE Zac Efron, of course. And, being the hero he is, he so kindly opted to go shirtless today as he thrashed through waves on his noble steed. And, do you know why he did that, ladies? Because he knew you needed a pick-me-up. And what could possibly make us feel better about losing Ryan Gosling forever than Zefron's rippling muscles? Nothing. So, remember all those tough times and tight situations Gosling got you through? Forget about him, guys. We need a man of action!

Zac Efron is here to save the day.
