The Rock lip sync-ing Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake it Off’ is the best thing you’ll see all day


Everyone knows that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is the friendliest guy in show business (that could still rip your arms out of their sockets if you stepped out of line) but he’s further elevated his status with this incredible rendition of Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake it Off’.


Seriously, is there anything that The Rock can’t do? The man can cook, act, benchpress a small car and bodyslam a 400 pound man through a table but it appears that there was one arena that he hadn’t turned his attentions to. Lip sync battles. Well, that is, until earlier this week. Appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s spinoff series ‘Lip Sync Battles’, the WWE Superstar turned Hollywood leading man, Johnson takes on Fallon himself by channeling his own inner Tay Tay and shaking it off for the whole world to see.


Proving that he lives up to every ounce of his own hype, Johnson warned Fallon that “your ass is getting ready to know Tay Tay before executing a flawless rendition of the pop song . It wasn’t just the perfectly exaggerated facial expressions or flipping Jimmy Fallon the bird when talking about haters hating that made the clip. It wasn’t even the fresh dance moves towards the back end of the song including a body roll at the end, showing an uncanny amount of dexterity for a man of his size. It was the fact that it all came together so flawlessly and we challenge anyone to watch the whole clip without cracking a smile at least once.


The series ‘Lip Sync Battle’, a spinoff from a segment on ‘The Jimmy Fallon’ show is hosted by LL Cool J and has been picked up by Spike network. The show will feature a host of entertainment’s finest battling it out in renditions of other people’s songs but it’s going to have a tough time trumping this effort.
