I love the Rock. I will never cease to be fascinated by the man and will watch basically anything with him in it including a video, which I hope will surface soon, of him eating his “cheat” meal of approximately 100 pieces of sushi.

The cheat meal Sunday Sushi Train ๐Ÿฃ ๐Ÿš‚ rolled on this past weekend with some power and a ton of that wooosabi ๐Ÿ”ฅ Great new doc on Netflix about one of my fav country artists, the icon himself, Johnny Cash. I wear the black for the poor and beaten down.. livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town. If you ain’t eatin’ - then you ain’t cheatin’. Enjoy your cheat meals my friends and excuse me while I take greed and gluttony to new levels. #FilthyAnimal #SooshTrain ๐Ÿฅข

Let that sink in for a minute—while you were going about your Sunday (and Mandy Moore was getting married) The Rock was sitting down in his home, laptop on the table, slowly (or hell, it could have been quickly) eating 100 pieces of sushi while he watched a Johnny Cash documentary on Netflix. You know, because nothing screams “relaxing” like raw fish and the Man in Black.

There are so many questions here, friends, let’s work our way up to the most pressing.

1. Why is he watching a documentary on his laptop, when presumably a TV is close by? This is a personal thing of mine—I hate watching anything on my laptop. This is why TVs were invented, so I don’t have to squint to see what’s happening on the screen.

2. What are the numbers on the plates? Sure, it’s probably to let him know what kind of sushi he’s eating, but it could just as easily be that he must eat the sushi in a strict order, lest he gets poisoned. I’ve seen The Simpsons, I know what’s up.

3.Did he eat all the sushi by himself?
a.How long did it take him?
b.How did he feel afterwards?

We may have the answer to 3b, friends, because this picture was posted yesterday, and, well, the Rock looks tired, don’t you think?

Startin’ the week of strong and focused as we shift gears and intensify the training even more for HOBBS & SHAW - our Fast & Furious spin-off film. Hanging behind me is our movie’s crest given to me as a gift from our director @davidmleitch - the American Brahma Bull & the British Lion. It’s the daily reminder of my goals for building out our franchise and our @sevenbucksprod philosophy of always putting the audience first. In life, I’m a very nice guy. But in business, I don’t play nice. Ever. And this is business. Proud of our whole production team’s work ethic and enthusiasm — we’re amaking something great for the fans to enjoy. #HardestWorkerInTheRoom #HobbsAndShaw #AmericanBullAndBritishLion #UniversalPictures SUMMER 2019

Being as delicate as possible, I’m not entirely sure the human body is meant to consume that much raw fish in one go…I can’t imagine he had an easy night a few hours after he initially posted his cheat meal.

I mean, sure, he could have shared his sushi-rama feast with other people, but I have a sneaking suspicion this was all for Mr. Johnson himself.

Why? Because Instagram tells me so.

Just last week he ate two pizzas, by himself.

Midweek carb up and takin’ these sexy pizzas ๐Ÿ• to pound town. Before our big action scenes tomorrow for HOBBS & SHAW, I get that glorious text from my strength and conditioning coach @daverienzi that says, “for your big scene tomorrow we need to fill you out more.. need you to eat pizza tonight and shoot me pics from the gym in the morning” — it worked. Muscle bellies are full, dense and striated. Achieving and maintaining a certain aesthetic for months while filming is such a crazy science that requires constant strategy and a surgical eye from a great coach. As scientific and intellectualized as this process can be - when you strip it all down to brass tacks, it basically means you gotta be fucking nuts to constantly commit to this discipline. Eh, I am what I am ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ #HobbsAndShaw #CommitToTheCharacter #HobbsForTheWin #PizzaPoundTown

The cheat meal Sushi Train ๐Ÿฃ ๐Ÿš‚ rolls on strong. Good collisions of world’s here/ Re-watching one of my fav docs, THE DEFIANT ONES (highly recommend) while going over my 2020 @underarmour creative concepts for our new Project Rock collection, called INNER WARRIOR - because everything always starts from within. You vs You. Project Rock has become @underarmour’s #1 global seller and we’ll continue to be humble and hungry as we steadily disrupt and elevate the game. Now it’s Me vs Sushi and in this game, there are no losers - only winners. Especially my big, greedy, gluttonous f’n belly. #SooshTrainRollsOn ๐Ÿฅข #CheatMealTime #Defiance #InnerWarrior

The cheat meal Sushi Train ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿš‚ steam rolls on down the line. Tried this new soosh spot that was a recommendation from my new best friend, Stanley Tucci. Great food. If anyone has sushi recommendations while I’m here in London, holla. Second time viewing of one of my fav docs, “Won’t you be my neighbor” about one of the most kind, compassionate, caring & steadfast human beings to ever walk God’s green earth - Fred Rogers aka Mr. Rogers. So pumped to see Tom Hanks play him. Perfect casting. Excuse me while I stuff my face and bring gluttony to a whole new level. #CheatMealSushiTrain #JustMissingMyTequila #HunksOfWooooSabi ๐Ÿฅข ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

…the man likes his baked goods, too

The Sunday cheat meal, “I have zero fucks left to give” #CookieAndBrownieTrain ๐Ÿช๐Ÿš‚ ๐Ÿ˜ˆ rolls on. My signature double milk chocolate and peanut butter chip with real peanut butter smeared in the middle, BUT this time with a twist - salted caramel chips. ๐ŸŽค drop. Colliding with one of the best doc series I’ve seen in a very long time, HIP HOP EVOLUTION. Highly recommend, if you’re like me, a hard core fan of hip hop culture and history, or a struggling hip hop artist or if you’re already a global hip hop superstar. A must watch. From that Miami bass bringin me back to my days at THE U (Uncle Luke/Uncle Al) to the hard core Texas boys (J Prince/Geto Boys/UGK) to that iconic LA Gangsta sound (Dre/NWA/OG Ice T) to that one and only G-Funk (Too Short / E-40) sound of the Bay (also where Tupac credits finding “his voice”) all the way back to the history of Afrika Bambaataa forming Zulu Nation to of course the undisputed originator of hip hop, New York City (Herc, Flash, KRS 1, Tribe, Wu etc). This doc is ridiculous. What’s also ridiculous is me devouring these gigantic MF’n cookies and bringing gluttony to a new level. Enjoy your cheat meals my friends. You ain’t cheating if you ain’t eating โœŠ๐Ÿพ

Here, he combines all of his loves: baked goods, sushi, and watching stuff on his laptop

Midnight. By any means necessary. Just cuz I’m in London, doesn’t mean my Sunday Sushi Train ๐Ÿฃ ๐Ÿš‚ doesn’t roll on. Shout to my ace/partner in crime, Emily Blunt for the soosh recommendation. Polished it off w/ my signature double stuffed chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies with real peanut butter in the middle. I’m late to the game on watching this doc, but THE DEFIANT ONES w/ Dr Dre & Jimmy Iovine is a must see. When I was a kid I heard a quote, that stuck with me for life - once you’ve been hungry, you’ll never be full. Cheers boys ๐Ÿฅƒ to never being full and always being the hardest worker in the room. #TrainRollsOn #CheatMealSunday ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ

I guess this all leaves us with one last question: If this is a cheat day meal, can you imagine what Thanksgiving at his house looks like?! If anyone manages to snag an invitation this year, let me know how many tables the food takes up!
