Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson impressed fans Friday by tearing apart his mechanized front gate, which was stuck shut because of a power outage. He had had “hundreds of production crew members waiting,” and didn’t want to inconvenience them further by waiting almost an hour for a technician, so decided to jump-start his day by ripping the entire gate out of the brick wall.

Not my finest hour 🤦🏽‍♂️, but a man’s gotta go to work. We experienced a power outage due to severe storms, causing my front gate not to open. I tried to override the hydraulic system to open the gates, which usually works when power goes out – but this time it wouldn’t. Made some calls to see how fast I can get the gate tech on site, but I didn’t have 45min to wait. By this time, I know I have hundreds of production crew members waiting for me to come to work so we can start our day. So I did what I had to do. I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared” 🤣 Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work. And I think I’m 💯 ready to be #blackadam 😄💪🏾 #ripgates

Well here’s the destruction 🤦🏽‍♂️ I left behind after pulling my gates off myself and going to work. This footage was taken from my security after I had already left and he arrived on the scene. The second video is of our technicians and welders carrying one of the gates and placing it gently in the grass. As you guys know from my last post, there was a power outage at my house, causing my gates to not open. Sure as hell wasn’t my best hour, but there were a lot of people waiting for me at work so I did what I had to do, hopped in my pick up and went to work. Maybe next time I’ll just hop the gates and call an Uber. Actually, no I won’t. There’s no fun in that 😈 Jokes aside, THANK YOU to the techs and welders who mobilized very quickly in the morning to come over and take care of the destruction. Thank you, gentlemen. Just one of those days where I wasn’t in the mood. We’ve all been there. 🥃 #ripgates

Despite making two Instagram posts about it, Johnson seemed slightly embarrassed about his outburst, mentioning it was “not his finest hour.” Nonetheless, his fellow celebrity friends showered him in praise and jokes regarding his impressive strength.

“Definition of “Daddy’s gotta go to work!” Now people understand why the characters of Hobbs and Black Adam were actually inspired by you! 😂” commented Hiram Garcia, who helped oversee production on Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

“Big fella, I’m guessing you couldn’t just jump the fence and get a ride to work?? Asking for a friend !!” Brian Westbrook asked.

“The gate opened the OTHER way,” Ryan Reynolds joked.

Even Logan Paul commented, asking Johnson to post a video of him ripping out the gate.

Later that day, Johnson made a post announcing what exactly he was rushing for: production on his upcoming Netflix original film, Red Notice, has officially resumed.

The world has changed and so has our process – we are officially back to work on filming RED NOTICE. A very productive first week back of work, but certainly not without some angst and anxiety, but overall our incredible crew remained focused, disciplined and executed brilliantly all week long. We have implemented the most aggressive health and safety Covid measures in all of Hollywood, but as I shared with our crew yesterday, we’re all still in beta phase with no “COVID playbook” to reference. We’re an agile crew — learning on the go and we will create the blueprint for how effective a large scale production can operate during a pandemic. Proud to go shoulder to shoulder with our entire crew on this game changer. In the mean time I’ll continue to screw up my lines and pretend to listen to my director/writer here @rawsonthurber as he shows me my firing target 🎯 The world’s most wanted art thief. An FBI profiler. And the greatest conman the world has never known. #RedNotice @netflix @sevenbucksprod @flynnpictureco @masistills 📸
