NBC got creative with is announcement for a new show coming in February. With all the people tuning into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, what better way to get people talking about your new show than to do it with the biggest Dwayne The Rock Johnson ever. The network used a gigantic balloon to take you back in time to a younger Rock to say his new show would be out in a few months. Introducing: Young Rock.

As of right now, the Twitter account for the show is private, so they’re really drumming up interest. However, it looks like the show will be a look into his family life growing up and his intros to sports and entertainment… And his 2032 presidential run??? This synopsis comes up when you Google the show:

“As Dwayne Johnson runs for president in 2032, he takes a comedic look back at his extraordinary life through the outrageous stories of his family and youth that shaped him into the man he is today. He explores his childhood years living amid influential wrestling icons while his dad rose to fame inĀ the business, his rebellious teenage years attending high school in Pennsylvania, and his football years teamed up with powerhouse players at the University of Miami. In his telling, Johnson explains that while his experiences have been larger than life, he remains a down-to-earth guy who still relates to the American people.”

Here’s the iconic fanny pack pic in case you live under a rock. (See what I did there?)
