The Rock Shared A #TBT Pic Of His Trash Stache From 1988 And Puberty’s A Son Of A Bitch

by 4 years ago

Today is Thursday, and for like 3 diehard fans on Instagram that means ONE THING: Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson’s going to share some ridiculous #TBT picture. Usually when he shares these pics I just scroll on by. I’m not one of those dudes who’s completely obsessed with anything and everything that The Rock does, but goddammit when I see #TBT perfection I stop and pay my respects. So go ahead and mark your calendars because today, August 6th, 2015 is the day that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson topped his infamous fanny pack photo, and he did so when she shared a picture of himself at the age of 16.

At 16-years-old I was 5’7, 120-pounds, and I hadn’t even begun to gain the look of a grown ass man. At 16-years-old Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was already 6’4 and 225-pounds. He had this tiny trash stache that is straight out of a 1970’s cop movie, lookin’ like the world’s most obvious narc trying to fit in with the H.S. kids. In his #TBT pic he shared a quick story about how puberty bringing him along to ‘grown ass man’ status by the age of 16 and that horrific mustache led to him being viewed as a ‘narc’ (undercover narcotics officer) in every single high school he attended at age 16. First check out the pic, then scroll below for his amazing story about the trials and tribulations of everyone in high school thinking you’re an undercover New York City cop named Rocko:

#TBT By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil' trouble with the law.. McKinley HS (Honolulu, HI), Glencliff HS (Nashville, TN), McGavock HS (Nashville, TN), Freedom HS (Bethlehem, PA). I was also 6'4 225lbs, rockin' a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn 'stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin' out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin' cars from crackheads. Yup, one of the many reasons why I'm a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty's ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache

Somehow that 16-year-old with the hideous trash stache grew into this….

I guess The Rock makes a pretty good argument to avoid facial hair at the age of 16, right?
