16 Times The Internet Roasted 'High School Musical' To A Crisp

Diply 14 Feb 2018

Did you grow up forever shipping Troy and Gabriella and have your heart broken when Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens broke up IRL? Did you hate Sharpay Evans for undercutting Ryan but secretly loved her fashion? Are you now and forever a Wildcat at heart?

If you answered "yes" to some or all of these questions, then boy, do we have some jokes for you.

1. We're going to start this off with one of the most heartbreaking moments of our teen years.

No offense to Zac Efron, but why wouldn't they just hire an actor who could sing like the rest of the cast?

Sounds like the directors needed to get their heads in the game.

2. Anyone going through final exams in high school or college can totally relate to this.

Or, you know, anyone trying to figure out why their head is in the game but their heart's in the song.

It's highkey STRESSFUL, okay?

3. Real talk, though, Disney played the long game by giving us the first two movies for free.

They knew they could hook us in and force us to watch the third one in theatres like a bunch of suckers (which my 16-year-old self did).

4. Alright, TBH, "Stick to the Status Quo" is one of the most underrated songs in the entire series.

It's so dramatic, and I would have given anything for my high school to drop some truth bombs like this.

No, dude, it's like a giant violin!

5. Up until now I never realized the similarities between Troy Bolton and Archie.

But wow, am I ever glad that somebody pointed this out to me. My life has changed.

6. I'm sorry, but is anybody else completely SCREAMING right now?

Both Lucas and Ashley actually went on to both have #fire careers, and our Disney hearts are so proud of them both. That said, I don't think I'd mind growing up to be Rebel Wilson.

7. I don't know if this was just me, but I never once questioned the giant poster of their students.

I mean, we're talking about the same school that actually gives their drama club funding. It's fictional.

8. Someone tell me why "Gotta Go My Own Way" was the most dramatic song ever?

I went around singing this and acting like I was going through the most dramatic breakup. Meanwhile, I had never even kissed a boy.

Gabriella: I just don't belong here, I hope you understand

Troy: (I'm trying to understand)

Gabriella: We might find our place in this world someday, but at least for now

Troy: (I want you to stay)

Gabriella: I gotta go my own way.

10. It's about time someone called Troy out for this nonsense.

Also, shame on this movie for tricking us vulnerable kids into believing that finding your soulmate via karaoke was a thing.

11. Someone should really have checked in on Troy more often. Boy was stressed.

Oh, and I'm trying so hard to think of the lyrics to "Bet on It," and I literally can't. Now I'm stressed, too.

12. The question is this: Are they singing the piano version with Kelsi in the corner or the pop version while their parents watch from the back of the auditorium with a newfound acceptance for their passion?

13. Ryan Evans had a happy ending and all, but I still think he deserves more recognition.

He literally was so nice to everybody throughout the series, and the boy knew how to wear a hat.

14. I'm not saying I want to break up with my boyfriend, but oh, man, I really want to try this on someone.

Can someone take one for the team and try this out with their ex, please?

15. My parents tried to tell me that High School Musical wasn't an educational movie.

But where else would I learn Spanish words like "¡Aye que fabulosa!"?

Take that, mom and dad.

16. And finally, if you don't at least know the "We're All in This Together" dance, then what are you even doing here?
