Funny or Die

We would be lying if we said that we hadn’t fantasized about Zac Efron preparing us a turkey sandwich, so props to Robert De Niro for making it happen.

In a new video for Funny or Die, De Niro purports to give his Dirty Grandpa costar an acting lesson…but actually just talks him through the stages of building a turkey sandwich because he doesn’t feel like making one himself.

“I want you to think of those to pieces of bread as a scene, okay?” De Niro begins, squinting his eyes in that way he does. “Now what you’re bringing to the scene is your own flavor. So put a little mustard on.” (The actor even draws on advice from similarly renowned contemporaries: “It’s like Dame Judi Dench once told me: ‘Don’t put too much turkey on the sandwich.'”)

The verdict? “Wow. This is even better than what Ben Stiller made for me in Meet the Parents.”

De Niro approves of Efron’s sandwich craftsmanship, as our crush on the two of them grows stronger by the second.

Dirty Grandpa premieres on Friday, but we hope Efron and De Niro stay friends forever because we truly enjoy their rapport (and will never get tired of seeing pictures of them bro-ing out shirtless).
