MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – If your promposal’s going to get rejected, you could do a lot worse than getting turned down by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
Katie Kelzenberg, a Stillwater High School student, asked the “Fast & Furious” and “Rampage” star to prom via Twitter Sunday.
“You may be wondering, why should I go to prom with her?” Kelzenberg said in a video while dressed as The Rock. “Well, let me tell you why. I am the biggest Dwayne Johnson fan.”
Kelzenberg shows off her Rock merchandise collection before asking Johnson if he would “rock” it at prom with her.
Johnson responded via Instagram Friday.
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 🦍

In lieu of a magical evening with the former wrestler and current superstar, Kelzenberg will receive a special screening of “Rampage,” with tickets and snacks for her and the rest of the theater paid for by Johnson.
Johnson also recorded a special message for Kelzenberg, which played over her school’s intercom system Friday.
