The Rock Smacks Down Potential 2016 Presidential Candidate

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's office posted a commercial yesterday called "No Pain. No Gain." to sell a pension-reform plan. The Hollywood blockbuster spoof featured a shot of The Rock as well as his name in the "credits" at the end.

NJ.com reports that The Rock's attorneys were not happy with his inclusion in the video, and demanded that it be taken down. A new version of the video was uploaded this morning without The Great One.

"Unfortunately The Rock is on high demand & won't be able to appear in our Summer flick," read a tweet from Christie's official Twitter account.

You can check out the original spot in the video above, and the Rock-free version below:
