Taylor Swift and Zac Efron cover Foster the People on 'Ellen': Watch it here

We’d like to introduce you to your favorite new supergroup: Tayzac Swifron.

Taylor Swift and Zac Efron sat down on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote their upcoming films Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, but the pair got distracted when Ellen found out that Swift had taught her costar how to play guitar during production.

“He had like one lesson,” Swift said. “And he was good at it! I taught him how to play ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ by Foster the People.”

And to prove it, the duo grabbed a couple of guitars and played the Grammy- nominated song – though the lyrics were modified for Ellen’s sake. Check it out below:
