Dwayne Johnson Follows Up ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Honors With Sexiest Man-nequin Challenge (Video)

Wrestler/actor dummies up to get in on the latest viral craze


Having secured Sexiest Man Alive honors on Tuesday, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went one better, attempting to pull off the Sexiest Man-nequin Challenge.

Wrestler-turned-movie star Johnson was announced as People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive on Tuesday, and to celebrate scoring the annual title, he indulged in the Mannequin Challenge viral craze.

Despite his seeming tendency toward perpetual motion, Johnson attempted to stand still for his video contribution to the craze. As is often the case, Johnson’s bid was set to Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles.”

The video posted to The Rock’s YouTube account Tuesday captured Johnson and crew freezing up as the athlete-entertainer participated in a photo-shoot and hung out backstage at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where his “Sexiest Man” honor was announced.

When DeGeneres asked him if this new title would change him in any way, Johnson replied, “What this means is I still have to drive in my pickup truck and change Jasmine’s diapers, but I’m the sexiest man alive!”

Johnson is only the second person of color to be named Sexiest Man Alive. The other was Denzel Washington in 1996. Other winners include Sean Connery, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Channing Tatum and Chris Hemsworth.
