Dwayne Johnson, Priyanka Chopra and the cast of ‘Baywatch’ demonstrate the art of slow motion beach running just in time for Labor Day weekend. The scene is part of ‘Baywatch: Extended Cut’ (available at Best Buy).
Even though Chopra played a vampy villain wearing Louboutins in Baywatch the movie, she knows how to do the famed lifeguard barefoot beach run from the original TV series.
“Slow motion running is an art. It’s almost like you have to take the wind as if it’s part of your body,” said Chopra in the video, part of Baywatch: Extended Cut (available at Best Buy). “It’s got to be part of who you are. Slow…and beautiful.”
Chopra would know — she was a superfan of the show growing up in India where Baywatch was must-watch TV.
Dwayne Johnson, who played the famed lifeguard Mitch Buchanon (formerly played by David Hasselhoff) had his own advice.
“When it comes to slow-mo running, the key is, you have to do your best to be cool,” said Johnson, warning of dire consequences for overthinking it.
