Twitterverse decided to calculate The Rock’s crazy-as-hell jump in Skyscraper

Because apparently, his stunt is impossible to pull off!

We have previously learned that when it comes to mistakes, the internet can be pretty savage in pointing it out. Whether it’s a movie poster mistake, a headline mishap, or a photoshop fail — people are bound to notice and make fun of it.

So when actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted the new poster for his upcoming movie, people were quick to notice that something’s really off with it.

People questioned whether The Rock can actually pull off this stunt. Though he has proven himself capable of doing many things that most humans can’t — as seen in most of his film, at least — people on Twitter decided to prove the impossibility of such a jump using science.

Twitter user @jpsmythe drew some parabolas to show that regardless of the way The Rock jumps from the ledge, he’ll end up falling to his death.


Another one decided to factor in The Rock’s height to calculate how fast he should travel in order to get to the other side safely.

It turns out, he needs to be the fastest man who can make the tallest jump to pull it off!

And someone even did some serious math to prove the point! Crazy, right?

You never fail to amaze us, Twitterverse!
