Watch: The Rock explains his infamous Throwback Thursday photo to Jimmy Fallon

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been making the media rounds this week to promote 'Hercules', which opens this Friday nationwide. He's had to do a ton of explaining, however, for his infamous "Throwback Thursday" photo posted last week to Instagram.

With a sweet leather fanny pack complemented by a chain around a turtleneck, The Rock was definitely into the style of the era in 1996. Johnson visited Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and the late night jokester made him answer not just for his clothing, but the oddly present tissue under The Rock's elbow.

Johnson explains all, including the placement of his thumb in the leather fanny pack, before receiving a nice surprise from Fallon. You can check out the whole interaction in the video.

Ready to see The Rock drop the fanny pack and pick up the sword of 'Hercules'? The storyline for the upcoming film is described below.

"Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord."

The Rock returns to the screen next in Fast and Furious 7, which is scheduled to hit theaters on April 3, 2015.
