It's hard to truly dislike Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. I mean, at this point, I would venture to say that he is a part of an elite group as one of Hollywood's leading action stars. He's also an awesome role model and overall good guy. So, who else would you rather see break the world record for selfies than The Rock?
So, let me clarify... this isn't the most selfies ever taken. That record would probably belong to a popular kid in high school. Rather, this record is the most selfies taken in a three minute window. Keep in mind, the previous record was 75. How would The Rock do in his effort to break it? Check out this video taken outside of the San Andreas premiere in London to find out!
Of COURSE he not only broke the record - he annihilated it! 105 selfies in 3 minutes is no easy feat. Also, keeping that smile of gold on his face the entire time is really impressive as well. Not to mention, while I'm sure this is no problem whatsoever for The Rock, keeping one's hand up in the air holding a decently heavy phone could be tiring.
But yeah, this is Dwayne Johnson we're talking about... a.k.a. the least likely person in Hollywood to lose an arm wrestling match. I'm sure holding a smartphone in front of his face for 3 minutes wasn't a big deal.
Overall, it's just really cool to see celebrities doing cool stuff like this that makes them seem so much more human. I'm sure there are some people in the biz who wouldn't be up for this. Not The Rock, though. He is all about the fans and the people.
Getting to take a selfie with The Rock is already amazing, but also contributing to a world record performance must be extra special. Good on you, Dwayne, I hope your movie is awesome, too. I'm looking forward to it.
