When an interviewer tried to prank Dwayne Johnson by yelling his infamous WWE catchphrase 'It doesn't matter!' at him out of the blue, The Rock had the best response. You can watch the hilarious interaction below:
While sitting down to talk to Johnson about Disney's Moana back in 2016, interviewer Kevin McCarthy decided to prank the wrestler turned actor with his former catchphrase.
Kevin starts by asking The Rock a question about how he has time to keep on top of his social media activity and engage with fans amid his busy work schedule. But before he can answer, Kevin hits him with his trademark line: "It doesn't matter!"
Despite The Rock taking the whole thing in good fun, he can't help but get the interviewer back.
As Kevin explains he's been practicing the delivery for the last three days, trying to perfect it with the help of his friend, The Rock interrupts him with his iconic line.
For wrestling fans who were familiar with Dwayne Johnson before he stepped out of the ring and onto the Hollywood circuit, they'll recognise "It doesn't matter!" as one of his signature catchphrases.
The Rock would use the phrase to taunt opponents in the ring, drawing cheers from fans.
So beloved were these words that they inspired the title of a song by artist Wyclef Jean on his second studio album The Ecleftic: 2 Sides II a Book. The Rock himself even contributes additional vocals on the song.
The Rock's work in Moana, recently garnered some attention as shocked fans learned the true origin of his character, Maui.
Upon the film's release, the singing demi-god was a hit with Disney fans of all ages and the film grossed a whopping $600 million (£430m) worldwide. But the character's Polynesian folklore heritage is anything but family friendly.
It was recently revealed the character was actually based on a folkloric hero whose last great trick on Earth was to turn himself into a worm and crawl into the vagina of the goddess Hine-nui-te-pō. He ends up being crushed to death by her obsidian vagina teeth...
Unsurprisingly, this story didn't make it into Moana.
