Here’s Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Eating Candy For The First Time Since 1989, This Proves He’s Actually Human

Something that diehard fans of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (aka DtRJ) love to throw out as a random fact is that the dude hasn’t eaten candy since 1989. Truly, the last piece of candy he ate before his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was a piece of Twizzlers all the way back in 1989, a full 27 years ago. The Rock broke his candy-less streak with PopRocks, which seems quite apropos given his nickname.

Not for nothing, here’s my new favorite GIF on the Internet (just made by yours truly), and I really hope this catches on:

Well, last night Jimmy Fallon broke his streak last night by temping The Rock into eating candy for his first time in almost three decades. Jimmy poured a pack of Pop Rocks into DtRJ’s mouth while holding the microphone as closely as possible, and thus he proved that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is actually human like the rest of us.

Now that DtRJ has broken his candy-less streak I think I’m probably not alone in being excited to see the ridiculous follow-up workout that The Rock will almost certainly upload to Facebook/Twitter/Instagram, showing what it takes for a man like The Rock to work off some seemingly harmless candy.
