The “DC League of Super-Pets” stars spent some time slapping each other across the face with tortillas.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart went to extreme lengths to advertise their new film.
The two performers are currently promoting “DC League of Super-Pets,” an animated children’s film that mocks the DC Comics superhero universe. According to CNN, they decided to take a brief break from interviews to participate in TikTok’s viral “tortilla challenge.”
Johnson shared a video of the costars playing the game, which includes two people slapping one other over the face with tortillas, on Instagram on Wednesday. For those who are unfamiliar, competitors must try their hardest not to spit out a mouthful of water – or else.
“This will be the funniest thing,” Hart said. “We’ve seen the kids playing this game where they slap each other with these things.”
Despite his wrestling-era nickname, Johnson loses the first round of Rock Paper Scissors, which dictates who gets to slap the other participant first.
“Don’t use your hand,” Johnson warned. “Fuck around and put your whole hand back there.”
Hart gleefully jumped up and down before whacking a tortilla across Johnson’s face.
While Johnson grumbled something incomprehensible due to the water in his mouth, the subtitles suggested he wasn’t pleased. When he lost the second round of Rock Paper Scissors and Hart slapped him again, his frustration rose.
Johnson whispered, “I’m going to murder you.”
Hart couldn’t keep his mouth shut and spit out his water. The terms of the viral challenge demanded that the tables be turned. Johnson slapped Hart quickly, but she flinched away in terror, prompting Johnson to try again.
“Please don’t fucking knock me out,” Hart pleaded.
Hart joked in the video that the two were trying to keep up with the times while promoting the movie.
“Well, this is us trying to keep up with the younger generation out there,” Hart said.
While Johnson managed to get a proper tortilla slap in, he joked that he was nonetheless still angry about being hit across the face twice in a row.
“You slapped the shit out of me, by the way, on that first one,” Johnson said. “You busted my eardrum. My fucking eardrum is bleeding.”
The two friends are busy promoting their upcoming animated film “DC League of Super-Pets,” which hits theaters on Friday.
