The Rock Chased His Daughter Around in a Giant Pikachu Costume

Apr 17 2017 -- 3:30 PM

This could be the start of an adorable new Easter tradition in the Johnson household. He wrote in the video's caption that his daughter Jasmine's favorite character is Pikachu, and he last pulled out the suit back before she was even walking. He thought that putting the costume on again would be a good idea, but times have changed:

"Well, Pikachu didn't account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2hrs straight she wants to play her new favorite game, 'I run away and you chase me Pikachu. And you're not allowed to take a break until I go night night.' At the end of the vid you can hear her yell, 'Peekyu' because she can't say, Pikachu. I'm tired, today's my only day off, it's 118 degrees in this costume and Hobbs keep trying to p*ss on my leg. And I luv every minute of it. Bring it on. It's what daddy's do. Happy Easter to you guys and enjoy your families."

Johnson seems like a great father, but it also seems like he'd make a great Pikachu. Assuming this Johnson/Pikachu hybrid was playable in the games, it would be a beast against Flying-type Pokémon with a combination of Electric- and Rock-type moves. That said, it could also be Electric/Fighting combo, given his wrestling past, which would wipe out the advantage since Flying is strong against Fighting.

Also this is fake and would never happen, but we can dream. The point is, Johnson is an adorable dad and seems like a role model for people in all walks of life.
