Dwayne Johnson Plays 'Blow Your Mind' with Jimmy Fallon - Watch Now!

Dwayne Johnson addressed the possibility on running for president Thursday on The Tonight Show following his now highly-publicized interview with GQ magazine.

"I've been blown away", Johnson said. "I didn't think that would be a compliment".

Johnson said he has been amazed by the "surge and the groundswell" of attention he has received since mentioning he'd consider running in a GQ interview. "It's so flattering", said Johnson. I love coming here to "The Tonight Show" crowd'.

"Three-and-a-half years is a long ways away, so we'll see", he said.

"The surge and the groundswell since then has really been incredible", he said, adding that he's "incredibly flattered" by the poll results. "A year ago, it started coming up more and more". There was a real sense of earnestness, which made me go home and think, "Let me really rethink my answer and make sure I am giving an answer that is truthful and also respectful"'. "Taking responsibility for everybody". "And, personally, I feel that if I were president, poise would be important".

'Last year, they talked about this a lot and I have a feeling things might get serious. I would actually include them. "But there are a lot of other things I want to do first".

'We all have issues, and we all gotta work our s**t out. "Or, I'm sorry, a better leadership today". I miss that part.

Not that the premise was hard to figure out or anything: The ghostly, ethereal head of?uestlove asked some true or false questions, and if the guesser is wrong, he gets blasted in the face by an air cannon.
