The Rock Pranks Kevin Hart On Jumanji Set

The Rock and Kevin Hart have managed to bond a lot during the filming of their latest movie Jumanji, that doesn't mean Rock will ever miss a chance to scare the snot out of him.

In his latest Instagram post, Johnson is seen lying next to Hart on the ground for an upcoming scene. Right as the camera is about to roll, he pulls a fake scorpion out of his pocket and puts it on the ground next to Hart's leg. He then hits Hart on the arm, frantically saying "move move move". Hart doesn't believe him at first, but upon seeing it stumbles over and can't run away fast enough.

"Happy Halloween @kevinhart4real! 😂
You can see the big fake furry spider 🕷I have in my right hand that I throw on Kevin before our take. You gotta understand that when we're asked to lay down in these jungles - when you look closely on the ground - it's literally moving with all kinds of bugs, spiders and centipedes. It's Kev's worst nightmare and some of the funniest shit I've seen when he thinks something is crawling on him. Non stop laughs with my guy on this movie. We always make it fun. 👊🏾💯 #OnSet #Jumanji #OnLocation #Hawaii #CasuallyLayingOnCentipedes"

It would be hard to blame Hart for running scared, especially from a scorpion. If it makes you feel better Kevin, even Indiana Jones is afraid of snakes. If you're going to be an adventurer, it stands to reason you have to be afraid of something, and now you know what your phobia is.

Just trying to find a silver lining here.
