Zac Efron might have set the standard for the athlete-musician trope in media with his role as Troy Bolton in High School Musical, but Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift are living it in real life.

Zac Efron Talks Taylor Swift, Travis Kelce 'High School Musical' Jokes

The Ricky Stanicky actor is now aware of the parallels fans are drawing between the modern day power couple’s romance and Bolton and Gabriella Montez’s (played by Vanessa Hudgens) teenage love story.

“Wow, I didn’t think about that. That’s really cool. Shout out to all the High School Musical fans,” the 36-year-old gushed to E! News earlier this week. “I love the whole Travis, Taylor thing. Man, I’m so happy for them. They’re two of the best people in the world. How can you not be stoked?”

Tayvis stans and pop culture-fanatics have been making the connection all over X (formerly known as Twitter).

Taylor Swift Calls Viral 'You Belong with Me' Afterparty Moment with Travis  Kelce the 'Most Romantic Thing'

“the chiefs game and the golden globes being within hours of each other reminds me when Troy and Gabriella had the basketball game and the academic decathlon at the same time as the audition for the school musical,” one fan wrote, in reference to the sporting event and award ceremony, both on Jan. 7.

We wonder what that person would think about the “You Belong With Me” singer flying across the world after consecutive “The Eras Tour” shows in Tokyo to attend the Super Bowl (which her star tight end boyfriend won).

Another user replied, “they’re so insanely troy & gabriella coded.”

Swift, 34, and Kelce, also 34, were first romantically linked after he attended her concert at Arrowhead Stadium last July. The two were officially dating by the time she attended the Kansas City Chiefs game against the Chicago Bears in September.
