One of the highlights of Halloween is seeing what creative outfits celebrities decide to wear. This year, wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson donned an oversized Pikachu costume to the delight of his young daughter Jasmine.
In an Instagram post, The Rock explains that Pikachu is Jasmine's favorite character, so with her mother's help, he brought the electric pokémon to life for Halloween. The video shows Rock in full-Pikachu garb doing the popular JuJu dance as a mesmerized Jasmine watches on.
Pikachu is baby Jasmine's FAVORITE character. So, for Halloween me and @laurenhashianofficial decided the real life Pikachu was gonna come to the house for a visit. What Pikachu didn't know was that Jazzy would start crying when he stopped dancing and demanded he continue to shake his tail with a loud "EH!". So, Pikachu danced over.. and over.. and over.. and over... and over.. again. By the time I dropped my 197th JuJu, the heat of this costume was kickin' my ass.? But, hey.. that's what daddy's do. #HappyHalloween #DaddyBlessedWithThatKnuckAndBuckStamina #NoLimitsWhenItComesToMakinEmHappy
It seems Jasmine enjoyed her father's performance a little too much, as she loudly yells "EH!" every time he stops dancing. After his 197th JuJu, the heat inside the Pikachu costume was proclaimed the winner over The Rock -- though he's not complaining, declaring, "It's what daddy's do," before re-suiting up and heading back for an encore.
The Rock can be seen with Auli’i Carvalho in the upcoming "Moana," directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. “Moana” also features the voice talents of Alan Tudyk, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger and Temuera Morrison and original music by Lin-Manuel Miranda. It arrives in theaters on November 23.
