Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is known for his bulging muscles as much as he is for his tough-guy roles in Blockbusters like San Andreas, the Fast and the Furious and Hercules. The towering 6ft. 4in. a-list actor and WWE star’s diet consists of more than 10 pounds of food each day, so you might be forgiven if you thought his recent Guinness World Record was for something like crushing a boulder or lifting a semi-truck.
But you’d be wrong — He used cereal.
Johnson’s production company, Seven Bucks Digital Studios, created a domino maze using 3,006 cereal boxes. The boxes were lined up in connected rows so they would fall in a continuous stream and create a form of culinary optical eye candy. The previous record was 2,686 cereal boxes.
According to the Guinness World Records guidelines, the cereal boxes used need to be commercially available and cannot be tampered with or altered in any way. (The Rock used national brands like Coco Puffs and Honey Bunches of Oats to reach his record.)
Such a fun day breaking our 5TH Guinness World Record. Thank ya to my bud, the cool and talented @ashaleo for being so awesome. 3006 cereal boxes toppled domino style! Then boxes delivered to the homeless. Great day and thanks to everyone involved. ??@SevenBucksProd https://t.co/jYRpG5FdBb

The team broke the previous record when the all 3,006 cereal boxes toppled in one smooth, sweeping movement. The curves and corners presented tricky spots for the boxes, but alas, they were overcome and the production company was awarded their newest title. According to a tweet from The Rock, the cereal boxes were donated to two homeless shelters in the Los Angeles area.
Seven Bucks Digital Studios is new to food-based Guiness World Records. In February it earned top title for making the world’s largest bean dip — a 540 pound seven layer dip. The idea apparently came from The Rock himself.
