Starring in one of the world’s biggest film franchises, becoming one of the the highest paid actors in 2016, and lending his voice to a highly anticipated animated film are not enough for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. His new YouTube channel went live this morning with its first video, “The YouTube Factory.”
The video follows Johnson as he receives a tour of a remote volcanic island — the "YouTube Factory," where popular videos are made — from YouTube star Lilly Singh. Singh leads Johnson through a series of themed rooms, each with content creators and featuring a different type of video. Grace Helbig, Roman Atwood, and Giselle "Gigi Gorgeous" Lazzarato are among the personalities who make appearances in the video.
This video is not the first collaboration between Johnson and Singh, who is also known on YouTube as “IISuperwomanII.” Singh’s video chronicling her first meeting with Johnson was published in April of 2015 and has over 6 million views. In it, she said, “This is the best day of my life” and called Johnson “one of the most wonderful, down to earth, amazing, inspiring, hard-working people.”
Johnson’s channel promises new videos every week.
