Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is better at saying "no" than any of you.
On April 15, a Minnesota high school student named Katie Kelzenberg shot her shot: She posted a video of herself on Twitter asking Johnson to be her date to the senior prom. A "promposal," if you will.
It's very sweet. See for yourself.
Unfortunately for Kelzenberg, Johnson is going to be in Hawaii that day, shooting Disney's Jungle Cruise. But he was so impressed with the gutsy teen's invite that he recorded a video reply for her on Friday.
He's all class, too. Yes, he ultimately turns down the invite. But he's so appreciative of the invite and Kelzenberg's earnest display of fandom that he comes up with a consolation offer: "Uncle DJ" is renting out a theater for her, her family, and all of her friends — with free popcorn and candy, of course — for a private screening of Rampage.
The Instagram video's accompanying note also mentions that arrangements were made with Kelzenberg's school, so she got to learn about Johnson's gift from a pre-recorded message played during the morning PA announcement, with the whole school listening.
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 🦍
