The actors posted photos to Instagram of their on-set competition. “Production for the day has ended, all the extras are going home and the sun’s going down,” Johnson wrote. “Me and [Zac Efron] refuse to quit in a tire shrugging contest that lasted for hours. Why? Because we’re #BAYWATCH, we’re bad ass and we’re a slightly dysfunctional family.”
Who won? The Rock, who wrote that he kicked Efron’s “candy ass.” His costar admitted defeat but wrote, “come at me on the 50 yard dash and we’ll see what happens, Sasquatch.”

Production for the day has ended, all the extras are going home and the sun's going down. Me and @zacefron refuse to quit in a tire shrugging contest that lasted for hours. Why? Because we're #BAYWATCH, we're bad ass and we're a slightly dysfunctional family. ✔️ On a side discipline note juuuuuust wait til you see the insane shape my boy Efron got in for our movie. Proud of the hard work he put in. That's the way you make a character "Iconic". I still kicked his candy ass though in this contest. #OnSet #TwoMeatheadsActingLike12YearOlds #EpicFunThough #BAYWATCH SUMMER 2017 🌊💪🏾
