Zac Efron talked condoms!

Earlier this week, Zac Efron accidentally dropped a condom on the whatever-colored carpet it was at the premier of The Lorax. You know, because children’s movie premiers are apparently some sort of Caligula-esque orgy of hot, torrid celebrity trysts (You should have seen the one they had at the premiere of Cars 2. Cuh-ray-zay!) Anyway, in an interview Matt Lauer for the Today Show, Zac finally admitted that yes, it was a condom, and yes, you should probably wear one when you’re banging.

But first he had to get him to say anything: Lauer asked Zefron to “take me through what happened” and the actor chuckled, rubbing his mouth, and said: “I don’t want to take you through it.”

Lauer persisted, and Efron admitted he did drop something: “I never really had a pocket-checking policy when I was going on the red carpet before, but now we’ve fully instated one.”

So Lauer spelled it out: “You dropped a — a condom on the red carpet.”

“That was really hard for you to say!” shot back Efron, laughing.

Clearly, educational opportunities abound in this film; as Lauer noted over the condom-dropping incident, it’s better to be safe than sorry about such matters.

“That’s a great message,” said Efron. “To add to the many messages in the film.”

Seriously Lauer, you’re an adult, how is it this hard for you to say “condom”? Watch this: Condom condom condom put a condom on your cock before sex. See? That wasn’t so hard. I mean my God, if we can’t even say “condom” without giggling like school girls, how in the hell are we supposed to openly and honestly discuss safe sex with teens, before they screw up and get pregnant and/or STDs?
