Now that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Zac Efron are working together on their upcoming Baywatch movie, their social media accounts are already creating a wonderful timeline of a buff buddy friendship. And we're loving it.

The latest evidence of their hopefully everlasting companionship was a friendly tire shrugging competition. Because apparently that's what two insanely ripped dudes do for fun when the cameras stop rolling.

"Production for the day has ended, all the extras are going home and the sun's going down. Me and @zacefron refuse to quit in a tire shrugging contest that lasted for hours. Why? Because we're , we're bad ass and we're a slightly dysfunctional family. ✔️ On a side discipline note juuuuuust wait til you see the insane shape my boy Efron got in for our movie. Proud of the hard work he put in. That's the way you make a character "Iconic". I still kicked his candy ass though in this contest. SUMMER 2017 "

In what should come as a shock to no one, Johnson came out on top according to posts from both men.

Honestly, I think you'd have to be the Incredible Hulk or at least The Mountain from Game of Thrones to beat the Rock in any strength-based contest. But good for Zac Efron to standing up to the challenge.

"Blood, sweat and respect. The first two you give, the last one you earn." Learned that from @therock who I happened to get in a tire flipping race with on . Needless to say I lost this one - come at me on the 50 yard dash and we'll see what happens, Sasquatch ;)

But that's no reason to view Efron as a lightweight. The Neighbors and former High School Musical star looks to be in peak condition to don the famous red bathing suit and play a lifeguard alongside Johnson.


Seth Gordon's 'Baywatch,' starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, will be released on May 9, 2017.
