Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson takes tequila shot with Stephen Colbert, serenades him with Samoan song
Johnson dropped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss his new movie, Skyscraper, but the pair got a bit off topic.
“You’re known for your eyebrow, I’m known for my eyebrow. Let’s look each other in the eye like men,” Colbert said to Johnson before downing the shot.
After enjoying a shot, Colbert asked the actor to sing a song in Samoan because Johnson played a singing Samoan in the Disney film Moana.
The former WWE wrestler began to serenade Colbert right away.
After singing the song to Colbert, he translated the lyrics: “It means, like, ‘Answer me oh my love, just what it is that I am guilty of.‘”
Johnson added, “I will say I have never looked a man directly in the eye when I sang that.”
Colbert and Johnson also discussed the ongoing rumours that the actor might go into politics.
“I know you’re not particularly a political person but people have talked to you about whether you would run for political office yourself because people love a winner, you seem like a winner and you exude great confidence. Do you actually take that possibility seriously?” Colbert asked.
“I absolutely do, yes,” Johnson said as the crowd began cheering loudly to his response.
Johnson went on to explain how the idea began when the Washington Post wrote a story, suggesting if he ran for POTUS, he would stand a good chance of winning.
“At the same time, I’m not delusional at all. You know I need that thing … oh yes … experience. So if that were to happen in 2024 or 2028, I’d have to go to work and get that experience,” Johnson explained.
