Comedian Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will try just about anything to keep up with their youthful audience. The Hollywood besties proved it this week while promoting their upcoming animated film “DC League of Super-Pets” after attempting the TikTok-born “tortilla challenge.” The latest internet craze involves two individuals slapping each other across the face with a tortilla while trying not to spit out a mouthful of water.
In an Instagram post that has already garnered nearly 30,000,000 views combined since being uploaded to their respective pages on Thursday, July 22, an overly excited Hart said, “We’ve seen the kids playing this game where they slap each other with these things.”
The “Ride Along” star wins the opportunity, not once but twice, to whack the former professional wrestler turned blockbuster movie star by winning an old-school game of “Rock Paper Scissors.” However, the comedian burst out laughing on the second slap, effectively losing the game.
After finding a second to stop laughing, Hart told his co-star, “Because I’m a good.. I’m a good f-cking partner you a get a sma-,” but was cut short by a slap from a tortilla. “You moved your head,” Johnson said to Hart, who admitted he was “scared” and hurried the star to take his shot — which he happily did.
“Well, this is us trying to keep up with the younger generation right there,” Hart quipped. “Never again,” The Rock responded.
“You can tell @KevinHart4Real has been waiting for the day he can finally slap the sh*t out of me with no consequences,” Johnson captioned his video before adding, “This was fun.”
In his caption, the “Night School” star wrote, “If this shit don’t make you laugh then something is physically wrong with you.”
The 43-year-old star revealed, “I have been wanting to do this for years….I got to live out my dream and smack the living sh-t out of @therock ….. He added, ”Oh my god this felt so good!!!!!! Insert evil laugh…..” before instructing fans to go check out the movie slated to hit theaters July 29
Fans could not get enough of the two, including one viewer who asked, “WHO ADDED THE SQUEAKY TOY NOISE WHEN KEVIN HART JUMPED?” Another person added, “Y’all friendship dope a hell!!!!”
A third person shared, “I laughed on repeat this morning and shared with everyone! Best damn thing I’ve seen this week!.” “Kevs been waiting his whole lifetime for this moment,” commented a fourth. Johnson was also spotted in the comments section: “My f-cking eardrum is still bleeding.”
