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 🦍
Last week, a high school senior in Minnesota dressed up as The Rock and made a video of herself asking Dwayne Johnson to prom.
After Johnson saw Katie Kelzenberg's video on Twitter, he shared a message for her that played on the intercom at Stillwater Area High School on Friday.
"Alright, let’s start this Friday morning announcement off with a little bit of fun and a little bit of excitement...You're probably thinking, 'What is "The Rock" doing on our intercom system!?'" the actor can be heard saying in a clip recorded in Kelzenberg's classroom.
"Well, I'm sending a message to very special young lady." He continues, "I have to let you know I appreciate how cool and awesome you are for inviting me to your prom." Johnson says he cannot attend Kelzenberg's prom because he will be filming in Hawaii, but that he's rented out a movie theater for her to go see his new movie Rampage.
"I want you to go and have the greatest time! I rented out 232 seats!" he declares. "Katie, have the best time. Thank you for being awesome!"
