Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson brought a grown man to tears on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on NBC.
Dwayne Johnson and Jimmy Fallon committed themselves to the ‘Race Through Universal Studios challenge’ with all the gumption and theatrics you could expect from The People’s Champ and a television funny man – and it was too much for one audience member.
You can watch the full skit in the video below:
Dressed as mascot versions of themselves – The Rock’s t-shirt was emblazoned with the phrase ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for obvious reasons – Fallon and Johnson set out at high speeds to get the most hugs, selfies and kisses from Universal Studios tourists.
Despite being pipped to the post by Fallon in the race, ever-gracious, The Rock put on his best photo-bombing face – or papier mache head – and headed to the photo booth to surprise some fans.
Between dabbing and twerking for the camera, Dwayne actually brought a grown man – who said The Rock has been his ‘hero since I was five-years-old’ – to tears when he revealed his identity from behind the mascot mask.
The man, who has a tattoo of the People’s Champ from back in the glory days of WWE on his calf, was treated to a Johnson bear hug and went home incredibly happy.
The Rock is nothing if not an expert showman and a devotee to his fans. We smell what you’re cooking, Dwayne, and we all want a piece.
