Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Lip Syncs ‘Shake It Off’ In ‘Lip Sync Battle’ Teaser (VIDEO)
Jimmy Fallon has helped reinvent The Tonight Show with fun, ridiculous, viral segments like Lip Sync Battles. But now Spike is looking to capitalize on the trend with its own series titled…(well, what else?)…Lip Sync Battle.
The show, hosted by LL Cool J, doesn’t premiere until April 2nd, but the first teaser has been released, and it features Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson getting his Taylor Swift on. In the clip, he lip syncs “Shake It Off” while dancing like he’s alone in his room, adhering to the old adage of dancing like no one’s watching (even though a cheering, raucous audience suggests otherwise). This teaser is brief — like, tragically brief — but it gives a sense of what’s in store for Lip Sync Battle. Sure, it’s derivative of Jimmy Fallon’s hit segment, but I can’t pretend this doesn’t look like fun.
But what do you think? Check out The Rock lip-syncing “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift in this Instagram preview trailer for Lip Sync Battle:
