Zac Efron, who many might remember from the High School Musical series that introduced them to the blue-eyed charming-faced spectacle that he is, happened to be tagging along a trip that included wildly popular vlogger Wil Dasovich, and his girlfriend and professional cosplayer, Alodia Gosiengfiao.

The well-timed adventure saw the group ending up on a California beach where Zac snapped a photo of the couple chilling out on the shore. Posted by Wil on his Instagram account, the photo's caption simply stated that the photo was taken by the Hollywood actor but didn't provide an explanation about how the opportune photo op unfolded.

With Wil's fans' impressive investigative skills, they managed to put two and two together to form a cohesive story behind the awesome meet-up; it turns out, Wil and Zac are actually childhood friends!

The story begins with how ex-Pinoy Big Brother housemates Wil, who is now based in Manila, grew up in the United States. Spending most of his youth in California, the Irish-Croatian and Filipino vlogger attended the California Polytechnic State University where he became friends with Dylan Efron, a.k.a. Zac's little brother.

The zany pair immediately hit it off and bonded over video games and sports, and sooner or later, Zac and Wil eventually struck up a friendship, too. Being close with his mom Charry who maintained signature Filipino warmth overseas, Wil often had Zac and Dylan come over or simply hang out as a trio with each other's families.



Fast forward to present day, their meet-up can be credited to a US holiday that Wil and Alodia are on. Having battled—and survived—cancer in recent months, Wil has been traveling back and forth to San Francisco and Manila, and on occasion, sneaks in a bit of fun in between medical appointments.

This San Francisco visit's side trip was spent with none other than Dylan, who Wil reportedly hasn't seen in over three years. Wil's Instagram stories prove it; three brief videos show him riding a scooter with Dylan, presumably on their way to the beach where his photo was taken.



More so, the personal Instagram accounts of Zac and Dylan both show that this pair of handsome brothers was exploring California together at the same time Wil and Alodia were doing the same; all social media clues seem to support Wil's fans' theories!

Alodia, on the other hand, seemed to enjoy the company of her newfound friend all the same. In one of her tweets, she teasingly describes how Zac's photography skills exceeded expectations.

All in all, it looks like this brief but meaningful catch-up provided Wil a much-deserved respite from the daily grind, and a great chance for him and Alodia to create more memories together with the friends who matter the most to Wil.

We might be a little jealous of this incredibly rare friendship, but we're certainly happy for this group of merry men!
