first_imgTeamed w/ @Apple to make the biggest, coolest, sexiest, funnest (is that a word?) movie ever. Drops TOMORROW!#ROCKxSIRI #DominateYourDay pic.twitter.com/STwlCPsVUh— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) July 23, 2017Along with the tweet, came the announcement that the movie would be posted in its entirety on Apple’s YouTube channel. That was enough to get some people speculating that this thing was an actual full-length movie. Like with a plot and everything. Could The Rock really have made an action movie where his only partner is an artificial voice on his phone? Johnson’s Facebook post also seemed to imply to some that it was a feature-length movie.“I make movies for the world to enjoy and we also made this one to motivate you to get out there and get the job done. I want you to watch it, have fun with it and then go LIVE IT,” he wrote.It wasn’t until someone asked Johnson on Twitter what the thing was actually going to be, that we got a clearer idea. Haha it’s a crazy fun commercial we’ll drop tomorrow. Dominate your day brother — Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) July 23, 2017So it’s a commercial. Of course, it is. But Johnson wasn’t lying. The ad dropped on Apple’s YouTube channel today, and it’s probably the biggest, craziest, most movie-like commercial it’s possible to make.Already, it’s way better than any of the previous iPhone 7 ads the company has made. It doesn’t have that air of smug pretentiousness that permeates so much of their advertising. It feels like someone was given a whole bunch of money and the freedom to go absolutely nuts with it. The premise is ridiculous. Johnson hears on the news that he can’t possibly take on any more projects, so he starts checking off life goals before shooting the climactic scene from his next big-budget sci-fi movie. Siri keeps him on schedule. And of course, there’s a “smell what The Rock is cooking” joke in there. We haven’t had one of those in a while.So the movie turned out to be a big-budget three-minute commercial, because what else was it going to be. It’s still more fun than any iPhone ad we’ve seen before. Even when he’s hawking phones, The Rock is still fun to watch.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

He’s grown from a cheesy CGI scorpion-man to legitimate star who knows his way around comedy as well as action. It seems like everyone wants to work with the guy. Even artificial intelligence assistants. Sunday afternoon, Johnson announced he was making the “biggest, coolest, sexiest, funnest… movie ever” with Apple’s Siri.last_img
