Katie Kelzenberg had put herself out there to ask one of the world’s highest-paid actors to her senior prom. It was a long shot, but she had to try – just in case. Then, on one morning, as the announcements played at her high school in Stillwater, Minnesota, she heard a voice that she swiftly recognized.
Eighteen-year-old Kelzenberg attended Stillwater Area High School – the oldest institution of its kind in her home state of Minnesota. And by the time spring of her senior year rolled around, Kelzenberg knew that prom was just around the corner. So, the student headed online to ask her favorite actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, a very important question.
In a video she shared on Twitter on April 15, 2018, Kelzenberg dressed up as Johnson, stood in front of a camera and said, “I would like to ask you to my senior prom.” She then pitched herself as a superfan of the former wrestler – and so a worthy date to the dance.
