"The closer I get to the top, the more I think about rock bottom."
The voice of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the last voice Tiger fans will hear over a hype video this record-breaking season.

LSU Football released the newest hype video hours before the Tigers kickoff against Clemson in New Orleans Monday evening.
Believe it, LSU fans! The Tigers are the 2020 College Football Playoff champions.
"The closer I get to the finish line, the more I think about where I started."
The Rock joins other celebs like John Goodman, Tim McGraw, and former LSU legend Glenn Dorsey in narrating hype videos for the Tigers this year.
When Joe Burrow and Drew Brees finally made their introductions, it was a meeting of the minds and a meeting of the "9s."
"Rock bottom transformed me, fortified me, it made me who I am. It made me promise myself to never go back and to never forget."
After the video was released, The Rock tweeted to let fans know LSU Coach Ed Orgeron was Johnson's defensive line coach when he played for the University of Miami.
