“Just wrapped my first day of shooting. It was crazy! This pilot is action packed and full of awesome twists! Hope you all had great days!” the 20-year-old actor tweeted to his fans earlier this week.

The two friends and former Nickelodeon stars teamed back up with Kurt Schneider for the fun video — which was presented almost entirely on cell phones. So cool!
“Max, Victoria and I had such an awesome time making the last 2 Medleys, so we had to go for the trifecta and do a new medley! In case you guys were wondering, there is no video effects trickery going on here, we played back a video on each of the phones and then we filmed it all in one take! In order to pull this off, we needed phones with super-sharp beautiful screens, so big thanks to Sprint for sending us phones that look awesome!” Kurt wrote in the notes section of the video.
He added, “It was no easy task pulling this off, but with the help of some very talented people, we did! THANK YOU so much to everyone who worked on it!”
Max tweeted, “Holy wow! More than 110 thousand views in less than 24 hours?!? That’s amazing guys! Thank you so much for watching!”
