STILLWATER, Minn. (KMSP) - Friday was anything but ordinary for students at Stillwater Area High School.
It was arguably the best day of high school for one student in particular as she received a special message on the school intercom.
“Good morning to the Stillwater Area High School students! This is, as you might have guessed by now, Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock…”
Last week, SAHS student Katie Kelzenberg took to Twitter to ask Johnson to her high school prom.
“Dwayne, will you ‘ROCK’ it at prom with me?” Kelzenberg said in a video message.
He was clearly impressed by how “punny” she was. And by the fact that she dressed up as Johnson for Halloween. And by her collection of Dwayne Johnson merchandise.
“I just had to let you know that I appreciate how cool and awesome you are for inviting me to your prom,” Johnson said in a recording played on the school’s loudspeaker.
Unfortunately, he won’t be able to make it to prom since he will be shooting a movie in Hawaii on the date of Stillwater’s prom.
“However Katie, because we are now best friends and I have so much love for you and because you’re so awesome… I have very special gift,” he continued.
At this point, Kelzenberg was covering her cheeks with her hands.
Since he won’t be able to make it to prom, he decided to rent out an entire movie theater (232 seats) for Kelzenberg to enjoy a special screening of his new movie “Rampage” with her friends and family.

He proclaimed himself an honorary Stillwater Pony and asked a “chivalrous gentleman of a boy” to take his new best friend to prom. He also suggested that it would be a blast going with a group of girlfriends.
“Alright Stillwater Area High School… I’M OUT!”
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 🦍
