Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson pulled out all the stops for his festive season attire. The former WWE wrestler recreated one of his most iconic looks for Christmas. 

A picture of a young Dwayne wearing a black turtleneck (tucked into his jeans nogal), fanny pack, gold chain, and watch has gone viral on several occasions over the years. 

The photo was taken in 1996. The Rock took to Instagram this week to share a video of himself wearing the same outfit.

He sang a Nat King Cole Christmas song while showing off his "amazing" outfit. 

"Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 90s Rock nipping at your nose. I'm walking down the hall looking cool as f***, just take one look at my amazing clothes," the 'Jumanji' actor sings. 

He continued: "Everybody knows a turkey and some camel toe, I mean, mistletoe,  helps to make the season bright. Although it’s been said many times many ways, Merry Christmas to you."

The Rock told People magazine in 2016 that he thought he looked cool when he wore the outfit in the 90s. 

“Alright, so here’s the thing. It takes a lot of confidence to rock a fanny pack... I’ve got a tissue underneath my elbow because I felt like my turtleneck was expensive. The funniest thing about this picture is, this is not a joke. I walked out of the house like this. Like: Hey baby, this is it, right?’"
