The Rock Recreated His Geeky 90s Fanny Pack Pose And, As He Always Does, Nailed It Perfectly
Lucky stuff. 🍀 Before every big performance (big scene in a movie, big event, Oscars etc) I always wear my lucky socks. I have 5 or so pair that are in rotation. For my big #SaturdayNightLive show this past weekend, I decided to go with my lucky STAR WARS socks. Harnessing the Force like the big ass turbo geek that I am. As fate would have it, SECONDS after this pic was taken, one of my team members walks in my dressing room and says, "Hey JJ Abrams and Steven Spielberg are right outside your door!" WTF!?! Was a total surprise. I walked out, gave 'em both big hugs, they wished me luck and I told them to enjoy the show. Real cool moment. Lucky socks rule. 🤙🏾
Only Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson not only could recreate his HILARIOUSLY geeky fanny pack pose from the 90s and somehow make it inspirational.
Another thing only The Rock could do is take a brutally nerdy moment in his life and somehow use it to subtly remind everyone that he has a new movie coming out (which is what the photo was all really about because he knew it would go viral). Dude is truly the ultimate promoter.
Anyway, as you surely recall, a couple years back Johnson shared a throwback photo of himself that pretty much set the internet on fire for its awesome nerdiness…
“Fanny pack and lean take it to a whole other level… #90sRock #WTF #BuffLesbian.”
The Rock later went on The Tonight Show and explained some of the logic behind the photo as well as the secret everyone wanted to know: what was in the fanny pack?
