It was over 20 years ago that I first had the experience of being poorly rendered for the whole world to see when it came to the climactic showdown The mummy returns turned it into a hideous, pixelated mess, you’d have thought it was waterless Dwayne JohnsonWhen he returns, he finds that his face has been destroyed once again.
And yet a recently unveiled wax figure of the star superstar proved so inaccurate, nightmarish and more than a little disturbing that Johnson has vowed to get his team to contact the Grévin Museum in Paris to make sure people don’t pay a lot of money to see something that’s already known as “Mr. Clean cosplaying as The Rock.”
The actor and producer also took issue with the fact that his character is noticeably lighter-skinned than the former professional wrestler with a black father and Samoan mother, although he took it in stride as he cited an incredulous reaction video in which he asked : “Is that so?” Did you all feel that way when you lost the Little Mermaid?”
Johnson has at least promised, “Next time I’m in Paris, I’ll stop by and have a drink,” but based on the fact that he’s made it public to his hundreds of millions of followers that Team Rock will have one after that After making a stern remark at the museum about the decidedly paler depiction of his massive body, one suspects that he might just want to see it firsthand if the changes he wants are made.
Hopefully it happens soon, because this dead-eyed monstrosity can burn a hole through you.
