Zac Efron learns to play guitar and writes song as birthday present for Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres got a sweet birthday present from Zac Efron when he guested on her daytime talk show in a segment that aired Thursday (30 January).

Coming up with something to give DeGeneres, who turned 56 on 26 January, was a bit of a challenge, Efron said.

‘I kind of thought what do you give to someone on their birthday who kind of has everything like you do?’ he told DeGeneres.

So, he came up with a song. Efron pulled out a guitar and performed his little song.

‘I don’t really play guitar and where is Taylor Swift when you need her?’ he wondered. ‘I kind of just figured out how to play this last night.’

The song had a total of three lyrics: ‘Happy birthday Ellen’ which Efron repeated several times as he strummed the guitar and the studio audience clapped along.

DeGeneres smiled throughout and gave the young actor a kiss of the cheek to show her appreciation. ‘

‘Well that was sweet!’ the birthday girl said.
