Once again, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has proven that he is indeed the nicest guy on the planet.
Senior Katie Kelzenberg of Stillwater High School in Minnesota got the surprise of a lifetime Friday morning when she heard her favorite star's voice speaking to her over the intercom during the school's morning announcements.
The gesture was the 45-year-old Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actor's response to a video posted earlier in the week of Kelzenberg asking him to prom.
Though Johnson is not able to attend the prom (he'll be in Hawaii filming a new movie), he gave the megafan something almost as good—he rented out a local theater in the girl's hometown for a special screening of his most recent movie, Rampage. With 232 seats, Kelzenberg can take as many friends and family members as she wants. And they can have all the popcorn, candy, and soda they can hold—all on The Rock.
Here's the video of a blushing Katie hearing the intercom announcement:
And here's the original clip of her asking Johnson to prom:
During the announcement, Johnson also posted this video to Katie:
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 🦍
Kelzenberg's excitement was contagious and Twitter was so happy for her:

He may not be able to go with you but you’re about to win the Internet today I imagine when you get a personal message back from the man himself. Nice work!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼— Tom Griffin (@tgriff716) April 15, 2018
They were also really supportive of her:
And of course the thoughtful gesture didn't diminish Johnson's reputation as an all-around great guy:

Peeps really appreciated how Johnson took time out of his schedule and used his platform to spread love:
Every day we all have a chance to hurt or to help. I enjoy witnessing the ways you have chosen to use your time and voice to bring joy. 🙏🏼— ~e (@its_just_e7) April 20, 2018
Thanks for making my day. What an awesome response by the busiest guy in show business. It’s awe-inspiring you take time out of your busy schedule to respond to requests from fans. Awesome job, Rock!— Scott Lockard (@ScottLockard316) April 21, 2018
