Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson’s Workout Videos – Part One
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s visit to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon may have just catapulted him into fitness stardom as he served up a cameo appearance as one of the infamous “Fungo Brothers”! With their parody, highlighting fitness fads and infomercial flops from the last few decades, they had a ton of fun in leg warmers, headbands, and muscle shirts (that were a bit too tight for Dwayne and strategically “loose” for Jimmy).
Jimmy, (a.k.a., Jack Fungo) the “not so buff” half of the Fungo Brothers, did a decent job putting some “hustle to get the muscle”, but Dwayne (a.k.a., Tad Fungo) stole the show with random hair pieces, neon fashions, white leg warmers, and equally white leather shoes. From the Thighmaster to the Shake Weight, the unlikely duo reminded me of a scary combination of this list of iconic fitness celebrities:
- Hans and Frans (from Saturday Night Live)
- Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito (from the movie “Twins”)
- Richard Simmons (Sweating to the Oldies)
- Tony Little (inventor of the “Gazelle”)
Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson’s Workout Videos – Part Two
Whether you’re a seasoned fitness professional or someone who avoids sweating like the plague, you can’t help but get a good laugh watching these guys make “light” of where fitness has dared to go in the past. Will this get a lot more people to the box office to watch “Hercules” when it hits the screen? Probably not. But I can imagine these videos will stick around a lot longer, and be remembered by more people, in the end.
Now … it’s time to HUSTLE TO GET THE MUSCLE!!
