Kelzenberg, a senior at Stillwater Area high school asked Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to prom in the most amazing way.

Dressed in a black turtle neck sweater, jeans, silver necklace, and a fanny pack strapped around her waist, Kelzenberg asked Johnson in her Twitter video that she posted on April 15.

In the video, Kelzenberg’s selling point when she asked Johnson to the prom was that she was his biggest fan and that she has a pretty big merchandise collection. But the one that totally sold her promposal? The banner she created, which totally ROCKS!

The clip, which has been viewed more than 329,000 times, managed to find its way to Johnson, and to Kelzenberg’s surprise, he actually answered back.

Unfortunately, he couldn’t go to the prom with her as Johnson admitted that he would be in Hawaii at the time filming for his upcoming movie “Jungle Cruise.” However, he did have a surprise for her and everyone else — and it was a pretty big one.

The Rock actually rented out an entire 232-seat theater just for Kelzenberg and her friends/loved ones to watch his new movie “Rampage.” He also covered all their snacks!

Johnson may not be with Kelzenberg at her prom, but he did give her the best prom gift ever.
