The Rock Wants to Buy You Guacamole

"Guac on the Rock" Will See Dwayne Johnson Pick Up the Tab for $1,000,000 of Guacamole

None

These days, it's hard to throw a lime wedge without hitting a celebrity-endorsed tequila.

Musicians, actors, Instagram-famous models... it seems like everybody's got one.

But only one tequila is backed by the Rock. 

And, more importantly, the actor and potential future president wants to buy you guacamole for Cinco de Mayo.

Guac on the Rock is a new initiative by Dwayne Johnson and his tequila brand, Teremana, that is running now through May 5. They will reimburse you for your guacamole when you purchase it alongside any Teremana tequila cocktail. The program is meant to spur business for restaurants and workers hit hard by the pandemic.

The timing is two fold, as Johnson's birthday is May 2.

“No better way to celebrate my 397th birthday, than with all of us helping our favorite local restaurants get back on their feet, all while drinking some Teremana and enjoying our favorite guacamole," says Johnson. He mentions that the bar and restaurant industry needs everyone's support, so he's hoping that this initiative helps bring people and money back into the businesses. “Let’s go help them out, enjoy some amazing drinks and food and say thank you for all they do. And let everyone know that the guac’s on the Rock!”

Here's how it works:

  • First, be at least 21 years old. Then, buy a Teremana tequila cocktail and some guacamole. 
  • Upload your itemized receipt to guacontherock.com or scan the unique QR code in the restaurant.
  • You'll get up to $10 for a single guacamole order, with a total cap at $1 million nationwide.
  • Once approved, funds will be transferred directly into your Venmo account

Look, you've never needed a reason to drink tequila and eat guacamole. And you don't need one now. But it's hard to turn down free guac.

And it's nice to see the Rock's "Hobbes and Shaw" money going to a good cause.
