Zac Efron is really playing up his teen heartthrob status these days. The former High School Musical star is embracing his frosty tips in a big way — and yes, he knows that he’s one pair of Zubaz away from a Saved by the Bell remake.

After frosting his hair with platinum for the remake of Baywatch, Efron starting receiving comparisons to another famously highlighted icon: Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s Save by the Bell character, Zack Morris.

Luckily for Efron, he didn’t seem to mind the resemblance, and instead embraced his newfound ’90s babe status, calling the character his “hero” on the red carpet during the L.A. premiere of Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Wednesday evening, according to ET.

And though Baywatch has wrapped and Efron’s frosted tips are no longer necessary, he continues to rock his bright blonde hair just for fun.

“I thought I had additional photography in the next upcoming weeks so I just kind of kept it, and I just talked to the producers and they said that I don’t have to reshoot anything for about like a year,” Efron told ET. “So I’ve just been having it for no reason.”

Luckily, Efron has the full (and enthusiastic) support of his co-star, Adam DeVine, who seems to love the blond do. “You’re punk rock and rock ‘n’ roll, that’s why you have it, Zac,” DeVine said. “Don’t let anyone talk you out of it!”

See, blondes really do have more fun!
