In honor of Throwback Thursday we decided to go back into Zendaya's younger years and see what we could dig up. It turns out that long before she made it big on Dancing With the Stars, Zendaya was showing off her moves as one of Selena Gomez's backup dancers in a Sears commercial! She's so young in the ad that we hardly even recognized her.

We recently caught up with the Disney Channel star at her photo shoot for NFL Tweens & Juniors apparel and asked her to give us the exclusive scoop on what it was like working with Selena. Talk about a trip down memory lane!

"That's a funny commercial because it’s so weird to think that later on — Ross [Lynch] was in it, Leo Howard was in it — and we were backup dancers, we weren't even the lead kids," Zendaya tells us. "It's funny where things evolved from and it's cool to start small."

Zendaya's life has changed so much since that commercial! Check it out below and let us know what you think!
