A teen at Stillwater High School in Minnesota was left speechless by her favorite actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson after she asked him to prom. If you missed it, Katie Kelzenberg dressed up as Johnson - complete with a turtle neck and fanny pack - to prom-pose to the actor via Twitter. And yes, Johnson caught wind of the post and while he couldn't accept - he came up with a response that's almost as cool:
- He recorded a special message for her to be played to her entire school during their morning announcements.
- He's renting out a whole theater for her and anyone at her school to enjoy his new movie "Rampage" - WITH ALL THE DRINKS AND SNACKS THEY CAN EAT!
As Kelzenberg sat in class...his voice came over the system. And while he thought it was “cool” and “awesome” that she asked him to prom, he's got a good reason for not showing up to the dance on May 5th: he’ll be filming “Jungle Cruise” in Hawaii.
“I couldn’t believe it. I was so surprised,” Katie said. “I just kept thinking, ‘He saw me! He knows who I am!’” In the end, Katie, her parents, and her brother were among the 232 other people that sat for the movie on Saturday. As for prom, Katie will go with friends.
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 🦍
