In the category of "you never know until you ask"....a teen at Stillwater High School in Minnesota will never forget what happened next.
Katie Kelzenberg was left speechless by her favorite actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson after she asked him to prom. She dressed up as Johnson - complete with a turtle neck and fanny pack - to prom-pose to the actor via Twitter. And yes, Johnson heard about the post. Although and while he couldn't accept - he came up with a response that's almost as cool:
The Rock recorded a special message for her to be played to her entire school during their morning announcements. Johnson's surprise - He's renting out an entire theater for her and anyone at her school to enjoy his new movie "Rampage" - WITH ALL THE DRINKS AND SNACKS THEY CAN EAT!
As Kelzenberg sat in class...his voice came over the system. And while he thought it was “cool” and “awesome” that she asked him to prom, he's got a good reason for not showing up to the dance on May 5th: he’ll be filming “Jungle Cruise” in Hawaii.
“I couldn’t believe it. I was so surprised,” Katie said. “I just kept thinking, ‘He saw me! He knows who I am!’” In the end, Katie, her parents, and her brother were among the 232 other people that sat for the movie on Saturday.
As for prom, Katie will go with friends. See Katie's reaction to Johnson's "gift" below.
