Living Greek myth Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is starring in the Baywatch movie reboot with a jacked up Zac Efron and posting a ton about it on Instagram. Which is, in fact, the best thing the f*cking Baywatch movie could have hoped for, marketing-wise, because Johnson is the best Instagram user in the world (better than Drake? Better than Rihanna? Better than Kim? Better than Beyoncé? Yes.). Lately, he's been using his account to pay tribute to lifeguards and the Coast Guard, because he's perfect.

That caption reads:

Our goal with #BAYWATCH is to bring y'all a big, fun, raunchy Rated R action comedy. But, we also go hard core with our action rescues (this kid fell off a pier in extremely rough waves) and pay respect to ocean lifeguards worldwide who are truly the first responders of the beach. As fun and wild as our movie is, it's been a real eye opening exerience for me playing this role. Respect. #HardCoreRescues #50DegreeWater #ShotThisSceneForHours #ThisKidAintLight #QuadsTookABeating #WhoElseNeedsSaving? #IWillPerformMouthToMouth #OnWomenOnly (crying emoji) #BAYWATCH May 19th 2017

The actual Coast Guard even gave The Rock props:

The caption reads:

"Semper Paratus". Chief Petty Officer Joey and a few of the boys from the U.S. Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Unit watched me perform our #BAYWATCHrescues all day long on set.

He said we have a total of exactly 300 men in our rescue unit across the U.S.

And now we have 301. Of course it ain't ever that easy, but I appreciate getting the nod from him and the other boys in the unit watching on that day and saying I did pretty good at ocean rescue (my only hope for the day was that I didn't f*ck the whole thing up in front of them;). I'll wear the badge with pride. Respect. #OnSet #BAYWATCH #USCoastGuard #HeloRescueUnit #DespiteBeingCalledRock #ISwimPrettyGoodAndDontSink

If you must swoon, do it near an ocean. The Rock will save you.
