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:

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!

This is the cutest thing, you go Katie!! And what’s even more inspiring is that someone as famous as @TheRock has responded!! I love that he’s humble other celebs just ignore their fans mostly.

They were also really supportive of her:
You can rock the prom with anybody! @TheRock will be just a guy there who would have been lucky enough to go to the prom with you if he had said yes sweetheart ✌️

And of course the thoughtful gesture didn’t diminish Johnson’s reputation as an all-around great guy:
Are you trying to make everyone love you even more! I didn't know that was possible… but it's working!

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.
