Jimmy Fallon convinced The Rock to eat sweets for the first time since 1989

This man's dedication is just crazy.

Dwayne Johnson is a modern day icon to many people thanks to his star quality in a series of blockbusters and the fact that he's, you know, The fuckin' Rock.

But there is one element of life that he knows little of; delicious sweets, or "candy", as he might say.

The Rock innit

Dwayne was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new comedy, Central Intelligence, which is set to hit cinemas on June 29, but the host and guest got distracted when something quite surprising was revealed.

The Rock had gone 27 whole long years without eating sweets. 27 years?!

Fallon, though, was determined to changed all of that on his show.
