A new PSA at the Alamo Drafthouse threatens death to phones if you text at the movies.
So apparently Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dwayne Johnson are the best tag team ever because they've made sure that everyone watching movies at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas won't be using their cell phones at the same time with a brutal Public Service Announcement.
Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dwayne Johnson are telling you to put your phones away
In a move partly promoting the new Disney Pixar movie 'Moana', in which Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson stars as the voice of Maui and 'Hamilton' star and creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has written the music, the pair joined up in a pre-movie clip to talk about the importance of putting your phone away at the movie theater.
With a Hawaiian backdrop to reflect their upcoming movie, Miranda and Johnson took turns in warning the audience about phone usage. 'We got a special treat for you people: a chance to hang out with us one on one', said Dwayne, with Lin adding: 'But you have to text us a message right now. Got your phones ready? And... WRONG!'
'What's your problem? You cannot text at movies!' Dwayne said.
'Maybe I should freestyle a verse on these guys to show them how it's not cool to talk and text in the theatre', Lin suggested, though Dwayne had other ideas. 'You know what? Even though that would be dope, I got a better idea', he said, proceeding to crush the phone in his hand and drop it on the floor before Lin points out that that was actually his phone. 'That's a sacrifice I was willing to make, brother', Dwayne responded.
The clip ended with the tagline: 'Don't talk. Don't text. Or The Rock will silence your phone for you.'
We can tell you right now that you won't be getting your phone out during 'Moana' this Fall. It's about the first Disney 'Princess' to come out of Polynesia, following a young girl called Moana who enlists the help of a demigod named Maui to help save her tribe from ruin, while sailing out to search for a mysterious island.
'Moana' is set to be released in theatres on November 23rd 2016.
