Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted a photo of himself with Chinese athlete Sun Mingming while promoting his new movie Hercules in China.

Mingming is 7 feet and 9 inches tall, and weighs 370 pounds, making the normally huge 6 feet 5, 260-pound Fast and Furious star look miniscule in comparison.

The Beijing Ducks player has played with several U.S. minor league teams, and was one of four players over 7 feet tall in a Guinness World Record line-up. He also does the occasional acting job, and played “Kung Fu Giant” in Rush Hour 3.
