One Minnesota teen got a response she probably never expected after asking Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson to prom.
On April 15, Stillwater High School senior Katie Kelzenberg tweeted the promposal to Johnson with a video and a sign that read, "Dwayne, will you 'ROCK' it at Prom with me?" The tweet went viral and got around to him.
KARE 11 reports Johnson surprised Katie with a message over the intercom for the whole school to hear. He thanked Katie for inviting him to prom, but said he could not make it because he's shooting a movie in Hawaii. To make up for it, he invited Katie, her friends, family, and anyone else she wants to invite to attend a private screening of his new movie, Rampage, with along with all the popcorn, candy, and soda they want.
Johnson proclaimed himself as an honorary Stillwater Pony, and also posted a message to Katie on his Instagram account.
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 🦍

Here’s the vid from this morning of me surprising @katiekelzenberg over the school’s intercom. Her reaction when I say her name is priceless.
I bought out her local theater this weekend so she & her BFF’s can watch RAMPAGE. #StillwaterHigh🤙🏾 pic.twitter.com/P24M5RuiWt
