She asked The Rock to the prom. His response amazed her.

An awesome high school senior invited Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to her senior prom by posting a video of herself in an outfit paying homage to The Rock's famously dorky 80s look and showcasing her superb collection of Rock gear.

"Will you 'Rock' it at prom with me?" Katie Kelzenberg asked. Check it out:

Alas, The Rock's filming schedule prevents him from attending the prom in Stillwater, Minn., but he did Katie and her friends a solid by renting out a theater in the area so they could all see his latest, "Rampage," which filmed in Atlanta.

"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," he said in a social media post responding to hers. She got the great news in a recorded message The Rock had aired over her school's intercom system.
