U.S. residents thinking about sitting this election season out may have serious cause to reconsider. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has made an impassioned plea as part of #voteIRL, Google’s effort to promote voter turnout by emphasizing how quick and easy it is to register to vote.
“Did you know on average, it takes a minute and thirty-four seconds to register to vote?” The Rock asks. To illustrate what a short amount of time that is, The Rock gets his “Seven Bucks” team to sing a short song, driving the point home.
Google paired the humorous tune with images of The Rock’s wrestling and film exploits, and a surprise appearance from Keyboard Cat. The Rock doesn’t care who you vote for; he just wants you to “get off your ass” and make a difference. Failing to do so may prompt the film mega-star to “come find you.” He doesn’t threaten outright physical violence, of course, though the song celebrates his pro-wrestling roots with mentions of delivering “bitch slaps” to “candy-ass jabronis.” Make of that what you will.
Presumably, The Rock got back to work on his latest project, “Jumanji,” shortly after wrapping up the video message. The actor is currently in Hawaii filming the movie with co-stars Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan — pronounced with a hard-G, the Rock noted on his Instagram account, apologizing for his mispronunciation in the #voteIRL video. “Jumanji” is set to debut July 28, 2017.
