Fans Go Wild For The Rock's 'Thanksgiving Day Parade Float'

Fans Go Wild For The Rock's 'Thanksgiving Day Parade Float'

Dwayne Johnson is incredibly proud after a huge virtual version of his iconic Young Rock look was featured in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.

The annual parade was a little different this year due to the coronavirus. Usually there are tens of thousands of people who line the street to get a glimpse of the huge balloons in New York City, however they had to switch it up a bit.

One of the floats that has delighted people all over the world is The Rock's.

A virtual reality version of a balloon was cast into the sky and The Rock was pretty impressed with the feat.

The wrestling star-cum-actor wrote on social media: "Well I've been lucky enough to do some pretty cool s**t in my life.. but after seeing my @NBCYoungRock FANNY PACK FLOAT in the #MacysThanksgivingParade this might take the cake.

"My plucked raised eyebrow is the stuff dreams (and nightmares) are made of."

The stunt was to promote his new show that will delve into how Dwayne Johnson became to be known as one of the biggest celebrities in the world.

But rather than a dry documentary, the 47-year-old wanted to do a comedy series, chronicling a childhood he likens to Forrest Gump. The 11-episode series Young Rock is set to air on NBC early next year and will tell the story of the actor's younger years.

He said: "I have talked about this wild and unpredictable and unbelievable childhood that I had.

"I've told many many stories, many of them unbelievable, but all of them true. You'll find Young Rock wreaking havoc in the streets of Hawaii, getting arrested doing a lot of things I shouldn't do. We were evicted off the island and moved, to all places, Nashville, Tennessee.

"Imagine me being in downtown Nashville, listening to country music at 15 years old, buying my first car from a crackhead for $70.

"We go into my high school years as Young Rock, and my role as a University of Miami football star, until I got beaten out of my position by a young man named Warren Sapp, who went on to become one of the greatest defensive tacklers of all time.

But one question remains, how will the Rock himself star in the series... he's got to, right?! Of course he has.

The father-of-three added: "We have found a really cool, fun creative way to weave me into the show, into every episode."

And though he wouldn't explain exactly how, he ensured the media that it is brilliant. As if you expected anything less from The People's Champ?
