Dwayne Johnson promised two new spots featuring himself these Super Bowl, and it's never good to doubt The Rock: Along with "The Fate of the Furious," a new look at the action-comedy take on the beloved/infamous '90s TV series "Baywatch" has arrived on shore, as revealed by Johnson on Twitter.
Who wants mouth to mouth?

The new spot sees Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson teaming up with Patriots’ Tight End Rob Gronkowski yet again to get pumped for both the upcoming “Baywatch” reboot and Super Bowl. And just how do the two get pumped? The only way a “Baywatch” star can: with a slow-motion run.
The video is the seventh in a series released by Johnson to his Twitter account leading up to game day. The last entry saw Johnson and Gronkowski trading pleasantries, ending with Johnson claiming the two had to do “one iconic thing”; the run seen at the end of the most recent video.
The spot also introduces the wider world to the concept of “gronking,” a term with a storied past. In 2014 author Lacey Noonan released an erotic novel called “A Gronking to Remember: Book One in the the Rob Gronkowski Erotica Series.”
Gronkowski showed he can take a joke when, the following year, humor site Funny or Die released a fake trailer for a movie adaptation of the book, starring Gronkowski himself.
Directed by Seth Gordon, "Baywatch" is scheduled for release on May 26.
