Ultimate Dad The Rock Dresses Up As Pikachu For Daughter

Ultimate Dad The Rock Dresses Up As Pikachu For Daughter

Ultimate dad.

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has come a long way since destroying his wrestling opponents with moves like the People's Elbow and the Rock Bottom.

While he usually plays a badass on the screen, it appears that he's a big softy at home.

Easter is always a fun time of year, especially if you're young, because you can pretty much eat as much chocolate as you want.

You can still do that as an adult but usually you feel guilty AF by Monday.

Usually kids wake up and go on epic Easter egg hunts and trawl through a garden looking for those sweet little packets of chocolate while one of their parents dress up in a bunny outfit.

But not the Rock.

Apparently his daughter's favourite character at the moment is Pikachu - and being the LAD he is - he got a massive costume that would accommodate his impressive physique.


And despite Johnson being a fitness machine - he had a bit of trouble keeping up with one-year-old Jasmine.

In his Instagram post he says: "For Easter Sunday @laurenhashianofficial and I thought, Pikachu should make a special visit once again. Well, Pikachu didn't account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2 hours straight she wants to play her new favorite game, 'I run away and you chase me Pikachu. And you're not allowed to take a break until I go night night'.

"I'm tired, today's my only day off, it's 118 degrees in this costume and Hobbs [the dog] keep trying to p*ss on my leg. And I love every minute of it. Bring it on. It's what daddy's do. Happy Easter to you guys and enjoy your families."

Pretty awesome dad right there.

Here's another video the Rock put up of him making his debut as the character. Jasmine sounds like she's a pretty big fan.


Even though the Rock hasn't been in the WWE ring in a few years - I wouldn't mind seeing him put his massive Pikachu costume to good use.

Just like this fucking incredible wrestler did here...

Along with being a legend of a dad, Johnson seems to be an all-round good person.

Earlier this year he helped a US war veteran get a brand new car. Johnson, an ambassador for Ford, was asked to unveil the company's brand new 2018 Mustang earlier this year. On his Instagram page, he said that he was of course happy to do so, but with a twist.

He and the car maker compiled a big list of US veterans, with The Rock choosing one to be surprised with their own Mustang.

In the post he said: "It was such a cool moment that all of us in the room will never forget. When Marlene, stopped and just looked at me and asked 'Why?', well that's when I may or may not have gotten a lil' emotional with my answer - in a badass manly way of course.

"Why? Because of the boundless gratitude and respect I have for you, Marlene, and all our men and women who've served our country."

What an absolute legend.
