Dwayne Johnson’s Easter Pikachu will make you forget the Easter Bunny


I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend, whatever you celebrated. I did… or at least I thought I did until I found out that I could have had a giant Pikachu chasing me around the house. Now I’m reevaluating my entire celebration. Especially since, in the Dwayne Johnson/Lauren Hashian household, Pikachu was none other than The Rock himself.

DJ and Lauren are parents to the adorable 16-month-old Jasmine, whom they apparently call Jazzy, which is my new favorite nickname. Jazzy Johnson adores the Pokémon character Pikachu. Who doesn’t like Pikachu? Except for, say, any parent that has had to listen to that adorable, little bastard say “Pik-a-chu?” in its wispy, helium voice 7,309 times? But if Princess Jazzy wants a Pikachu, a Pikachu she will get. Since Pikachu has roughly the same characteristics of a modern day bunny, DJ and Lauren decided that instead of the Easter Bunny, a stretched out, hollow-eyed version of Pikachu would please Princess Jazzy more. And please her it did:

The first time Jasmine's favorite character, Pikachu came to visit her months ago she was only crawling. For Easter Sunday @laurenhashianofficial and I thought, Pikachu should make a special visit once again. 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. #Rockachu #DaddyPuttinInWork #TheGameThatNeverEnds #PikachuLooksBloated

#Rockachu. There are so many things to pull from that clip but gawd, please – somebody make Rockachu a thing. It really, really needs to be. Obviously Princess Jazzy is knuckle-biting adorable, running around in glee. There really isn’t any question why DJ is wound around her little finger. But honestly, I’m here for Hobbs the dog. Hobbs is not having this 6’5” aberration in his house, on this day. Especially if it is chasing after his Princess Jazzy. That giant freak-of-nature will be *begging* to just be peed on if Hobbs gets his teeth into one of those overstuffed slippers, which he can’t quite seem to do. And the hustle at the end on both DJ and Hobbs part when Jazzy gives the the equivalent of a Princess Clap by calling out “Peekyu”? Honest to Easter, it’s just fun.

DJ is done with his The Fate of the Furious promotion because it collected all the money already so why work up a sweat? He is not done with the films, though. Apparently he and Vin Diesel have worked out their boy-brawl stuff for the sake of the franchise and are “1000%”. So both will be back to film Fast 9. Huzzah! I’m sure the producers gave them million$ of reasons why they should let bygones be bygones. Not to mention, DJ might still get his own Fast spin-off. I can wait for Fast 9 but I’m actually excited for Baywatch. I know it will be dumber than dumb but sometimes, that level of stupidity is just what the doctor ordered.

    Pikachu is the sweetest, tiniest creature on earth – except for the parents who, as you say, have to endure it. This gigantic, monumental, sligthly unwilling, Pikachu cracks me up.

    Honk for The Rock

    I love the posts on him, keep it up!

  5. ShinyGrenade says:

    He is such a charming man.

    I salute the Rock for knowing his strengths as an entertainer. I don’t think you will see him straining for “serious actor” status. He delights millions and that is a big part of what the business is all about. I have a friend at work who will go crazy over this picture.

      100% ! I think it’s admirable that he was able to take a career from WWE, and like you said, “work with his strengths as en entertainer” to create a great career for himself. He seems like a great dad, and Moana elevated him to new heights! He sings! Love ❤️

    God, I love this man. And the cute little dog following him around is everything.

    My gym was playing “Pain and Gain” the other day (a stupid movie about some very stupid criminals), and Johnson’s in it being his amazing self. It’s been awhile since I saw him in a film, but I gotta say guys…the megawatt smile on this man is just unbelievable. He literally just oozes charisma.
