After a teen from Minnesota bravely took to social media to ask The Rock to her prom, Johnson responded in a way that only he could.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Response to Teen's Prom Invitation Is Absolutely Adorable
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has won hearts all over the internet for being a devoted dad, boyfriend, and feminist. Now, he's wracking up brownie points for his completely pitch-perfect response to a teen's prom invitation.
It all started on April 15 when Katie Kelzenberg tweeted a video of herself dressed as Dwayne (she explained it had been her Halloween costume), and then, the Minnesota teen bravely asked her favorite celebrity to her senior prom. The tweet quickly went viral and eventually catching the attention of The Rock himself.
Fast-forward to Friday, April 20, and The Rock posted his response for Katie. He shared that he was "so impressed" by Katie's "charm," but unfortunately, can't make her prom, given that he'll be shooting Jungle Cruise. That said, he rented out an entire theater, so Katie (and her 232 closest friends and family) could view a private screening of his new movie Rampage with a ton of free popcorn, soda, and other treats. He also reassured her that she could have a blast at prom with her friends, if a guy didn't end up being her date. Yes!
SURPRISE KATIE KELZENBERG! About a week ago, I come across a video on my Twitter feed, from a student at Stillwater Area High School (oldest high school in Minnesota) asking me if I would be her date to her prom. Unfortunately, I’ll be shooting during that time in Hawaii, BUT I was so impressed by this young lady’s charm and confidence to even ask me (ladies always get shy in front of me) that I had to do something special. I decided to rent out an entire theater (capacity 232 seats) in her town so Katie and her closest 232 friends and family can enjoy a special screening of RAMPAGE. And all the free popcorn, candy and soda high school kids can consume! You’re money’s no good Katie... everything is on Uncle DJ. 🤙🏾🍿 🍭🥤!! And I also taped a special morning message surprising Katie and her high school that will play across the school’s intercom system... literally...RIGHT NOW, Katie should be turning red hearing me surprise her in front of her entire school. I wish I was there in person Katie, to see your reaction to all this, but I’ll hear about for sure and most importantly - you and all your friends have fun at the theater and ENJOY RAMPAGE! Thanks for being an AWESOME FAN and I’m a lucky dude to have fans like you. Uncle DJ 🤟🏾❤️ Ps - the gorilla in Rampage is way smarter (and better looking) than I am, but don’t tell him that because he has a HUGE ego 🦍
Obviously, both The Rock and Katie deserve all the sweet props they're getting for both of their viral posts. Here's hoping Katie has an incredible prom night!
