Can you imagine bringing a celebrity to your grad? It’s not uncommon during Promposal season that students will reach out to the stars in hopes that at the very least they’ll get a reply.


Earlier this month, a Minnesota high school studio named Katie Kelzenberg tweeted everybody’s favourite part-Canadian Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to invite him to be her prom date:





Unfortunately for Katie, her prom happens to take place while he’s filming Disney’s Jungle Cruise in Hawaii.




Uncle DJ had a little something up his sleeves…




Even though he had to decline the invitation, “The People’s Champ” not only replied personally, he also had a huge consolation surprise: he’s renting out an entire theatre for Katie and her friends for a private screening of 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 ????

Even better, the pre-recorded message got played during her school’s morning PA announcement, with the whole school listening. Here’s her reaction:









Forget the Lotto Max…anyone else now tempted to tweet a Promposal to The Rock to see what kind of great things you’ll get when he turns you down?
