If the crushing news that Matthew Perry wouldn't appear in the Friends reunion wasn't enought to ruin 2016 for you, the low blow that Zac Efron has decided not to star in the High School Musical one probably was, and it's got some fans speculating.
So after we whacked out the celebratory cheese and pineapple sticks and did a little jig to celebrate the confirmation of a Friends reunion, it turned out all wasn't as it seemed and Matthew Perry's Chandler Bing wouldn't be appearing due to scheduling clashes.
To rub salt into the wound, Disney announced a High School Musical 10 year reunion the same week, along with the news that Zac Efron won't be appearing in his Wildcats gear - or indeed at all. BOO.
It goes without saying that their absence is absolutely CRUSHING, and it turns out we're not alone and it only took twitter a matter of hours to come up with a conspiracy theory about the pair planning it together. Well, 17 Again's got something to answer for, doesn't it?
Taking it to heart
Zac's hand position says it all really
Our dreams are ruined
Our hearts are crushed
THIS IS SO UNFAIR
IS IT BECAUSE THEY'RE THE SAME PERSON? IS IT? If they're off giggling somewhere together about the emotional turmoil they've put us through, our lives will never be the same.
We can't cope, so hit us up @Sugarscape when we've calmed down a bit and give us your thoughts on this conspiracy theory.
BUT LOOK AT THESE FIRST:
