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:
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.
