She asked The Rock to be her prom date and then....

When Katie Kelzenberg asked Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to escort her to prom, she probably didn’t expect him to even notice her request, let alone post a heartfelt video response. On Twitter last week, the 18-year-old posted a short clip in which she declared herself “the biggest Dwayne Johnson fan” before showing off her collection of merchandise. Showing off her sense of humor, Katie dressed in a turtleneck, jeans and fanny pack — a style similar to that worn by Johnson in a now infamous photo taken of him in the ’90s.

… Not wishing to let Katie down, but realizing that he couldn’t make the date due to work commitments, The Rock recorded a video for her on his Instagram. And because he couldn’t make it to the prom, The Rock told Katie that he’d rented out an entire movie theater for her and her friends to see his new film, Rampage.

But he also had one other surprise for! 

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 🦍
