The Rock is a busy guy these days, what with being the most sought-after leading man in Hollywood and having a growing number of blockbuster films under his belt. So, alas, when he was invited to the prom by Stillwater Area High School student Katie Kelzenberg, the perpetually on-the-move People’s Champ unfortunately had to decline.
However, The Rock showed his appreciation for Katie’s invitation by treating her and 232 of her best friends to a screening of his new hit movie, “Rampage,” at a local theater.
Not only that, but The Great One surprised Katie with a special message during the Minnesota high school’s morning announcements, resulting in many tears of joy.
“I’m a lucky lucky man to have such amazing fans like Katie, and moments like this will always be the best and coolest part of my job,” Rock wrote. “Her reaction is everything when she hears me say her name!”
Check out videos of The Rock’s surprise below.
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 ?
