We've already seen evidence that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson wasn't always the coolest guy growing up – remember the fanny pack he sported along with mom jeans and a gold chain in a throwback pic he shared last year?

The Ballers star went one better (if that's possible) on Thursday, posting a #TBT pic of himself at the age of 16 that actually … well … just look at it.

It is so magnificent it actually made us gasp.

And it seems Johnson, 43, is aware of the photo's potent power.

"By the time I was 16 yrs old, I had already enrolled in four high schools across the country due to being evicted and lil' trouble with the law," the action hero wrote in a caption. "I was also 6'4 225lbs, rockin' a dead caterpillar on my lip (aka the porn 'stache) and all the kids in every high school thought I was an undercover cop cause I looked like a mutated, yet handsome SOB of a man child. Plus in Nashville I was already hangin' out in honey tonk dive bars on Music Row and hustlin' cars from crackheads."

Looking back at that time, and that photo, he continued, "Yup, one of the many reasons why I'm a grateful man for the life I have today and also grateful I straight up kicked puberty's ass early in life. #GodBlessSamoanAndBlackGenetics #AndGodBlessOurTeenageYears #AndWTFWasIThinkingWithThisMustache."
