"When I took this iconic absurdity of a picture in 1996 I was one year removed from sleeping on a used mattress I took from a garbage dumpster in the back of an hourly sex motel," Johnson captioned the image.

"Couldn't afford to buy a bed so we do what we gotta do to get by. You can imagine all the fun colorful bodily fluids I tried my best to clean off," he continued. "21 years later I'm taking the same photo backstage hosting #SaturdayNightLive for the fifth time. If you're going thru your own tough times 'used mattress' stage, do your best to have faith things'll get better and always be willing to outwork your competition because you never know where life is gonna take you."

After stating that he resembles a "bad [expletive] buff lesbian," Johnson offered one more piece of advice noting, "Oh and tuck the thumb in the fanny pack. Always tuck the thumb."

If you're going thru your own tough times "used mattress" stage, do your best to have faith things'll get better and always be willing to outwork your competition because you never know where life is gonna take you. And ALWAYS remember to place a soft tissue under your left elbow as to protect the fabric of the cheap ass swag turtleneck that had you out here looking like a bad ass buff lesbian. Oh and tuck the thumb in the fanny pack. Always tuck the thumb. 🤙🏾

While Johnson hosted Saturday Night Live recently, the 45-year-old doubled down on his comments about running for president in 2020 alongside celebrity running mate Tom Hanks.

"In the past, I never would have considered running for president. I didn't think I was qualified at all, but now, I'm actually worried that I'm too qualified," Johnson joked.

Previously, Johnson stated a run for president was a "real possibility" following the release of an op-ed piece in The Washington Post that suggested he could win an election based on his likability and ancestry.
