Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson premiered “Baywatch” footage at the annual CinemaCon convention in Las Vegas, calling the cast the “Avengers of the Beach.”

In the clip labeled “Fuchsia” band with the caption “FU — F—in’ unbelievable: pervasive hotness, comedy and action,” we see more of Zac Efron‘s swimming capabilities, described as if a “jetski f—s a human.”

There is also an extended look at the scene in which Alexandra Daddario, Johnson and Efron are in the morgue, where former “High School Musical” hunk is forced to check a dead man’s private parts for needle marks  — much to the enjoyment of his co-stars.

Ultimately, Efron, who plays an Olympic swimmer-esque character named Brody, seems to be the punching bag in this movie, which Johnson hopes will be “the greatest comedy of all time.” There’s lots of singing and running in slow motion, and Daddario catches Efron staring at her breasts … not once but three times.

And yes, Efron’s famous beach tumble that inspired memes in August is back in this fuchsia trailer. Only now, it’s in complete slow motion, which had the entire audience at the convention in tears from laughter.

Directed by Seth Gordon, “Baywatch” also stars Priyanka Chopra, Jon Bass, Kelly Rohrbach and Ilfenesh Hadera.

Johnson introduced the cast of “Baywatch” on Tuesday with dozens of sexy men and women dressed in red swimsuits dancing on stage. Then, he asked the cast members what it meant for them to be in “Baywatch,” but Johnson didn’t really want to hear Efron’s answer and promptly cut him off — all in good humor, of course.

“Baywatch” dives into theaters on May 26.
