Apple has teamed up with Dwayne Johnson, better known as The Rock, to make its first Siri “movie.”

It’s called The Rock x Siri: Dominate the Day, and it’s pretty hilarious. Johnson plays an exaggerated version of himself who uses Siri to fulfill crazy dreams. But it’s certainly not a movie.

Johnson tweeted a poster for the clip over the weekend and called it the “biggest, coolest, sexiest, funnest movie ever.” But at just 3 minutes and 45 seconds in length, it’s definitely more of a flashy ad than a movie.

It is fun, though. The Rock uses Siri’s help to prove he can take on more work and reach his life goals. Those include touching up the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, making dinner with French chef Ludovic “Ludo” Lefebvre and exploring space.

Along the way, Apple showcases some of Siri’s most useful abilities, like reading your schedule and emails, fetching your to-do list, booking Lyft rides and playing music.

Of course, Siri understands everything Johnson asks and responds instantly, which isn’t totally accurate. But that’s “movies” for you.
