Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Gets an Epic Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon!

The balloon, disguised as real coverage from the parade, was an ad for The Rock‘s upcoming TV comedy, Young Rock, which is set to arrive in 2021.

In the commercial break, Today‘s Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb remarked about the balloon, dressed up in his infamous ’90s blue jeans, fanny pack, silver chain and black turtleneck look used in many memes

Young Rock “follows the wild times of Dwayne as a kid, a teen, and a college footballer,” according to Hoda, while Savannah said that she “can’t wait to see what kind of trouble little D.J. got into.”

“Never in my wildest dreams…I’ve been a lucky SOB to have done some pretty cool s–t in my career, but after seeing my @nbcyoungrock FANNY PACK FLOAT in the #MacysThanksgivingParade, this might take the cake. This time in my life may represent when I had just $7bucks in my fanny pack, but at least I had enough COOL to tuck my turtleneck in and wear fake silver jewelry because it was all I could afford 🤣🤦🏽‍♂️ And my massive plucked raised eyebrow is the stuff that dreams (and nightmares) are made of 😂💀 Float on, kid.. you might just make it one day,” The Rock wrote on Instagram.

If you missed it, here’s who’s going to play him in the upcoming series!
