Adorable Instagram Video From The Rock Confirms Hasselhoff’s Joining Baywatch


“I WAS BORN READY!” Pleasure to officially welcome the original #BAYWATCH gangsta himself David Hasselhoff to our movie! #BAYWATCH is the most successful TV show of all time and from the day we announced we were turning it into a movie, “The Hoff” has been our greatest supporter. Especially once he knew our RATED R movie was going to be a combination of AVENGERS meets ANCHORMAN….🌊🖕🏾Hoff’s a cool dude who’s down to have fun and here’s the best part.. He’s been training his ass off and gotten in the best shape he’s been in in years! (cue slo-mo running and glistening chest hair.. wait, why the f*ck am I even thinking about Hoff’s chest hair!?) World get ready.. #RockAndHoff #ThereAintNoBay #WithoutTheHoff 💯👊🏾

When the beach is calling, David Hasselhoff will always come running. Granted, he’ll be running in slow motion, but still; running nonetheless. So today, the beach (read: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) did come calling, and the Hoff came a runnin’. Johnson posted a video to Instagram of him Facetiming with Hasselhoff, asking him if he’s ready to return to the bay(watch).

Of course, the Hoff being the Hoff, he responded that he was born ready, but he doesn’t think the world is ready for The Rock and the Hoff together in the same movie. And you know what? I think he might be right.

I’m having a very hard time imagining the two of them in the same movie. This is on the level of Carl Weathers-meets-Arnold Schwarzenegger/Dillon-and-Dutch. I’m talking uncomfortable bro-five level of on-screen muscle. Here, just watch a GIF of the very possible near future:

Fuck yeah.
