English term or phrase: rocks rock
Es un comentario del Times de Londres sobre un programa de televisión acerca de volcanes, piedras y cosas reacionadas con la Geologia. La frase completa es:

"This program makes rocks rock"

Es su sentido literal podriamos decir que "este programa hace que las rocas se muevan", pero creo que se refiere al sentido popular de cuando algo le gusta a la gente porque es bueno o de calidad.

Este programa hace temblar la tierra.


Explanation:
Creo que esta opción logra de manera similar el juego de palabras en inglés. El programa es sobre geología y está muy bueno.
Incluí un ejemplo extraído de internet que utiliza la frase "hacer temblar la tierra" con doble sentido.
