Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Shatters Record for Highest Acting Salary 

Stuck in Atlanta traffic, The Rock gives Lovett’s baseball team a little pep talk

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, currently filming “Jumanji 2” in Atlanta, recently found himself stuck in the city’s horrendous traffic, he decided to use the frustration to spread some good vibes.

In a video shared to his Instagram account over the weekend, The Rock is seen in his truck driving alongside a school bus filled with the Lovett School’s baseball team. The boys screamed and motioned for his attention until he finally gave in.

The celebrity superstar rolled down his passenger window and gave boys a little encouragement before their big regional tournament game against Cedar Grove High School in Ellenwood on Friday.

And the good luck apparently paid off. The team won 23-1.
