YouTube’s list of celebrity creators continues to grow, as ‘High School Musical’ star and A-List actor Zac Efron has made a surprising debut on the platform.

Efron uploaded his very first vlog to the website on March 30 using YouTube’s ‘Premier’ streaming feature, where he spent 96 hours in a desert to “unplug” from society.

In the vlog, Zac and crew took on a series of fun activities, including flyboarding, hiking, and good, old fashioned outdoor cooking.

The vlog appears to be the first in a series titled, ‘Off the Grid,’ suggesting that other such traveling videos and “unplugged” experiences are to come soon after.

In fact, the description of Efron’s vlog teased a weekly upload schedule; although the Premier archive isn’t currently available, Efron even answered fan questions ahead of the video’s release, further cementing social media’s unique ability to engage with an audience.

Efron isn’t the first celebrity to have taken YouTube by storm, either; the actor follows in the footsteps of ‘Fresh Prince’s’ Will Smith, who uploaded his first vlog to the platform in December of 2017.

Smith made further waves on the platform with his viral bungee jumping video in September 2018, where he jumped out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon in an effort to face his biggest fear.

Actor and comedian Jack Black likewise made a splash on the site shortly thereafter, with his now-famous ‘JablinskiGames’ channel inspired by his son, which already boasts over four million subscribers as of March 30.

Efron’s YouTube debut follows his controversial role in upcoming film ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,’ which chronicles the crimes of serial killer Ted Bundy from the perspective of his girlfriend.

Zac’s role in the film caused a stir across the online space, with many taking issue that filmmakers had cast the good-looking actor for the role – with others arguing that the film shouldn’t have ever been made in the first place, fearing that it could glorify and even inspire future serial murderers.

While Efron has yet to Tweet out more information regarding his newfound hobby, fans can expect more content from the actor on a weekly basis in the near future.

Twitch streamer Jadeyanh terrified after stalker hijacks broadcast

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
