No Pain No Gain: Christie's Summer Blockbuster
Christie's office released a mock trailer previewing an action movie based on the governor's pension reform plan.
Made to look like an action movie, the trailer features explosions, car chases, and a clip of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. WYNC reporter Matt Katz writes that Johnson didn't ask to be in the trailer, which might be why it was taken down so quickly.
The trailer was made by in-house professionals, in the same way as other Christie clips and television spots.
As with anything coming out of Christie's office, the movie has inspired speculations on whether this will hurt his chances in possible presidential races.
