Dwayne Johnson has become the new face of the famous 'Got Milk?' advert after making his dairy debut during the Super Bowl XLVII yesterday (February 3rd 2013).
WWE's Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has never been one to take himself too seriously, having appeared in numerous comedy and kids' flicks over the years (during and between his wrestling ventures), and he has managed to make himself even more lovable and child-friendly in his latest post as the star of the 'Got Milk?' dairy commercial. The ad shows him discovering that there's no milk left in the refrigerator while three young girls with bowls of cereal look on in horror. With a look of pure determination, Johnson runs down the street chasing after the milk truck in his pyjamas. Along the way he is confronted with chaos; a child whose cat is stuck up a tree asks him for help, a group of balaclava clad thieves run from a bank with handfuls of cash and an elderly couple are trapped in a car with an escaped lion on top; however, the usually heroic Dwayne assesses that his milk situation is of utmost importance and manages to retrieve a new bottle and give those kids their breakfast before. erm. punching an alien in the face.
A little random, we'll admit, but our favorite wrestler deserves a good slap on the back for his hilarious performance as usual. It doesn't quite compare to likes of past Super Bowl ads, such as the Apple Macintosh commercial in 1984 which won four awards for its gripping style and 2010's epic 'You're Not You When You're Hungry' Snickers advert featuring Betty White playing football, but it will certainly stick in our minds for a good few weeks.
