I Asked The Rock If He Had "Big Dick Energy" And Yeah, His Response Was Great

I asked to his face.

You know THE ROCK. He needs literally no introduction.

Because he's the star of the movie/THE ROCK, I knew it would be hard to get more than, like, 30 seconds to interview/talk to him. So, my editor suggested I have 1-2 questions ready to ask. Because we're BuzzFeed and because I personally love drama, the questions were:

For those of you who don't live, breathe, and die by the internet, big dick energy (BDE) is the latest viral Twitter sensation. Here's how it's defined:

'big dick energy' is confidence without cockiness. it is never misplaced, and it cannot be simulated. it is the sexual equivalent of writing a check for $10K knowing you got it in the bank account thank you for attending my TEDxTalk

Anyway, I was kinda nervous for a few reasons:

•I would have to revert to high school basketball and box-out other reporters to get to The Rock

• I didn't know how he'd react to being asked about "big dick energy." Like, what if he just decided to pummel me into oblivion for asking a risqué-ish question?

• What if he was with his 16-year-old daughter on the carpet??!!

Here it is as a video:


And although he didn't explicitly say he had big dick energy — which we all know he does — he did say, "BIG DICK ENERGY ON 3!" when we took this pic:
