It’s official: there’s nothing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson can’t do. And this time, he’s pulling off one of his biggest stunts yet, with the help of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Dwayne Johnson is the king of marketing and making statements. He’s debuting his new comedy show on NBC titled “Young Rock.” It follows Johnson through his younger, wild times as a teen and college football player.
The caption reads, “Well I’ve been lucky enough to do some pretty cool shit in my life.. but after seeing my @NBCYoungRock FANNY PACK FLOAT in the #MacysThanksgivingParade this might take the cake. My plucked raised eyebrow is the stuff dreams (and nightmares) are made of 🤣💀#fannypack4life ✊🏽”
The parade balloon is modeled after the iconic photo of The Rock, wearing a fanny pack, silver jewelry, and even the signature arching eyebrow.
