Nothing was going to stop Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson from being late to work.

So when some bad weather knocked out the power to his front gate he simply did what pretty much none of us can do. He ripped it off its hinges.

He posted a pic of the mangled steel gate to Instagram.

“Not my finest hour️, but a man’s gotta go to work,” read the caption, adding that he’d tried to override the hydraulic system before resorting to tearing the gate down, but it didn’t work and couldn’t wait the 45 minutes for techs to arrive.”

“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.”

He noted that when the technicians and welders arrived, “they were apparently, ‘in disbelief and equally scared.'”

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
