In the latest edition of fans asking out their heroes to prom, we have Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson responding to a Minnesota-based high schooler who shared a fairly inspired take on the prom proposal.

Decked out in his legendary turtleneck-and-fanny pack outfit, Katie Kelzenberg asks Johnson to ‘Rock’ it at prom with her:

These don’t always get responses, but Johnson is the People’s Champ for a reason. Although he was busy in Hawaii with a movie shoot, he did share a heartfelt message on Instagram praising Kelzenberg on her proposal, and offered to rent out a theatre for her and her friends to see his latest movie, Rampage:



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 🦍

Now, a social media post is one thing -- the free PR never hurts, if you wanted to cynical -- but Johnson put some extra effort into his response and reached out to Kelzenberg’s high school, leaving a voicemail to replace their morning announcements.


That’s a pretty cool gesture from a guy whose daily routine is literally to workout, shoot movies and eat 5,000 calories before bedtime.
