Dwayne Johnson tastes his own blood in a new Instagram video in which he celebrates the value of gym injuries.
The Jumanji star, otherwise known as The Rock, is seen in the video with blood trickling down his temple, and claims that things had become “intense” during a workout.
"Alright, look,” Johnson says. “Sometimes – well, oftentimes, things get intense here in the Iron Paradise, but we ain’t playing tiddlywinks and we ain’t reciting nursery rhymes.
“You get bumped up every once in a while and things happen.”
Johnson then wipes blood from his temple onto his finger, before giving it a lick.
“That’s good!” Johnson responds. “That’s real good. Now back to work.”
In a caption, Johnson claimed that his blood tasted like “black and Samoan hot sauce” – a reference to his ethnicity.
