The Rock breaks the selfie world record at San Andreas premiere - watch the video

The Rock is pretty much a man mountain of awesomeness.

Not content to have forged a massive career as a wrestler, he's also conquered the world of movies dominating the screen in everything from the Fast and Furious franchise to Hercules, GI Joe and many more.

He's also a big fan of the selfies, as you can tell from his many appearances on social media where he mostly seems to be eating or working out, which probably explains why he looks like he's built out of Redwood trees and granite.

At the premiere of his new film San Andreas in London, Johnson decided to take his love of selfies one step further by trying a world record attempt. The goal - take as many selfies as possible in three minutes. They had to be taken by The Rock himself, feature the head and shoulders of his companion and (of course) be in focus. Oh and he had to take more than 75 of them to win.

Did he manage it? The Rock ate that challenge for breakfast!

He even managed to smile through most of them! The final tally was 105 eligible selfies, putting him on the map with an actual Guiness World Record. That's all kinds of impressive, and consider that this is just a thing he did with three minute of free time on a red carpet, right in between eons of press interviews, meeting the fans and - oh yea - presenting the premiere of his new multi-million dollar blockbuster movie.

He even had time for a message to the crowd, once he had that all important certificate in hand.


The Rock - one hell of a guy.

San Andreas is in cinemas on the 29th of May 2015.
