Recently, Kevin Hart appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote DC League of Super Pets which is releasing this week Friday. Fallon came up with the topic of their slap challenge, where Hart admitted he was afraid of Dwayne Johnson slapping him hard.

Hart said, “Yeah. I had to make sure he is holding it right.” I think he was gonna try to smack– I honestly think he wanted to kill me. And I’m just being honest, right?”

He added, “Because he had his whole palm behind the tortilla. I’m like, ‘No no! That’s not how you do it! That’s not the slap.’ And then he is like (speaks gibberish), cause that’s how he talks.”

During the challenge, Hart could not hold his laugh after slapping the second time and spat the water in his mouth. As a result, Johnson won, and he said, “So I win? So I win now? Wait a second.” 

Hart, as a good friend, allowed Johnson to slap him twice after the challenge was over. The Rock later said, “You slapped the sh*t out of me, by the way! On that first one. You have busted my eardrum.”
