People are still amused by Taylor Swift and Zac Efron’s “diss track on Ellen in front of Ellen.”

The High School Musical performer and singer-songwriter went on The Ellen Show and surprised the presenter with a surprise original song.

They had no idea how significant the song would become, with Ellen DeGeneres later accused of creating a hostile workplace climate, sexualizing an interviewee, and violating another’s boundaries. Prepare for a new number one favorite song:

Swift explains that she taught Efron how to play the guitar and play ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People while sitting on DeGeneres’ sofa 11 years ago.

The couple started strumming and singing along after obtaining some guitars and Swift reminding Ted Bundy of the chords while encouraging him along the way.

It doesn’t take long for Efron to suggest that they ‘alter up the lyrics’ a little.

“Ellen works a long day,” Efron sings. In a smart, fashionable sweater, giving strange interviews. And it becomes a little strange, right, calling us out as if we’re boyfriend and girlfriend.

“But it’s not just ’cause we’re sitting here watching cat videos and dancing to Betty White and everything.

“And it’ll always be strange, because this song is all about Ellen and Swift, yeah.”

Swift also takes a go at DeGeneres, stating that she’s appeared on the show eight times and that, in addition to hiding in the bathroom with a camera and scaring her, DeGeneres has repeatedly asked her about who she’s dating.

The duo begins a chorus in which they express how’really odd’ it is ‘every time’ they both appear on the show – ‘all because of Ellen,’ they harmonize. Ouch.

DeGeneres may have exclaimed “love[d] it” shortly after Efron and Swift concluded their performance, but her facial expressions during the performance suggest at a more uneasy – or “weird” – atmosphere.

And social media users are in stitches over the song, flocking to the comments section to share their thoughts on the resurrected clip.

“I love seeing Taylor being snarky,” one YouTube user commented. She appeared to be having a good time shouting out Ellen. Taylor is a lady.”

“They really made a diss track on Ellen in front of Ellen… Legends,” someone another said.

A Reddit user wrote, “Never forget this exists called her out subtly by song and that was in her prime years as a TV host with the wholesome image.”

“I adore this. “They’re roasting her, and she’s just sitting there with her fake smile, seething on the inside,” said another.

Finally, someone stated, “It’s still iconic…!”
