Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart have resorted to dramatic measures to promote their latest movie.
The two actors are in full press for “DC League of Super-Pets”, an animated film for children that parodies the universe of DC Comics superheroes. But they decided to take a brief break from interviews to brave TikTok’s viral “tortilla challenge,” according to CNN.
Johnson posted a video of teammates playing the game on Instagram on Wednesday, which involves two people slapping each other with tortillas. For the uninitiated, participants should do their best not to spit a sip of water – or whatever.
“It’s going to be the funniest thing,” Hart said. “We’ve seen the kids play this game where they slap themselves with these things.”
Despite his wrestling-era nickname, Johnson loses the first round of Rock Paper Scissors, which dictates who gets to slap the other contestant first.
“Don’t use your hand,” Johnson warned. “Fuck off and put your whole hand there.”
Hart happily jumped up and down before hitting a tortilla in Johnson’s face.
As Johnson mumbled something unintelligible because of the water in his mouth, the captions suggested he wasn’t too happy. This frustration only grew when he lost the second round of Rock Paper Scissors and Hart slapped him again.
“I’m going to kill you,” Johnson muttered.
Hart couldn’t contain himself and accidentally spat out his water. As the rules of the Viral Challenge dictate, the tables have turned. Johnson immediately slapped Hart, who fled in fear, leading Johnson to make another attempt.
“Don’t fucking knock me out,” Hart begged.
Johnson and Hart are wrapping up their press tour for “DC League of Super-Pets,” which hits theaters across the United States on July 29. Hart joked in the video that the two were trying to keep up with time. while promoting the film.
“Well, we’re the ones trying to keep up with the younger generation,” Hart said.
While Johnson did manage to get a good tortilla slap, he joked that he was still angry that he was punched in the face twice in a row.
“You slapped me, by the way, on that first one,” Johnson said. “You broke my eardrum. My fucking eardrum is bleeding.
