Fortunately, it's not real.
It's all part of Struck By Lightning, the young stars' new teen angst flick about a high school outsider named Carson (Colfer) who blackmails fellow students into contributing to his literary journal.
And only we have an exclusive clip from the film to show you just how nasty things become.
The scene features Carson and his pal Malerie (Aussie funnylady Rebel Wilson) having the plug unceremoniously pulled on their Writers Club homecoming float by Claire (Hyland), the school's bitchy pretty head cheerleader.
Carson is one very unhappy camper.
We can't wait to see what happens next.
Struck By Lightning will be available on iTunes and VOD on Dec. 19 and in select theaters on Jan. 11.
