The Rock Drops in on Some Roadside Holiday Well-Wishers (Pic)
Anyone who follows The Rock on Instagram knows that the dude isn’t just active on social media. He posts some straight-up novels as his posts.
This one is no exception. The long story that follows is a cute one, essentially boiling down to, “The Rock was driving in a country town, saw some cute kids holding up sweet “Happy Holidays”-type signs, waves to them, does his stuff for three hours, drives back by, sees them still there, they recognize him again, this time with signs custom-made for him, go bonkers, and he does his thing where he poses for pictures with them.”
Man, even the short version of the story was long.
It’s just The Rock bein’ The Rock, and it’s a pretty nice story.
Maybe it’s random or maybe it’s holiday fate… either way it makes my heart sing… I decide to take a Sunday drive in my pick up to run errands and go train at my buddy’s gym. As I’m driving down the road I see three young girls holding signs that just say “Beep”, “Happy Holidays” etc. So I drive by and do what anyone would do.. I beep and wave. As I look in my rearview I can see that they’re pointing at my truck (my all black pick up is pretty recognizable in our little country town). I go train and run my errands and over 3 HOURS later I’m driving back down our little backroad and the same three angels are standing by the side of the road – only this time they’re jumping up and down, waving and screaming as I drove by. I thought, “Did those signs say my name?”…”Should I turn around just in case?” I decide to hit the brakes and look in my rearview and in that very moment I see them going BONKERS! I flipped a U-turn and drove back to them. They were elated. So was I. These little angels waited outside for over 3 hours for me to hopefully drive back down their road.. their mom and dad came running out and we all exchanged hugs and took pics. I made sure I got a pic with my phone, wished them all Happy Holidays, got back in my truck and went on my way. The coolest part of this whole random (or maybe fateful) act is that by turning around I literally got to meet some of the sweetest and kindest little ladies and family I’d ever met. May sound silly or corny, but moments like this are by far the greatest part of fame. Happy Holiday’s guys and thank you universe for this really cool moment. #CheckoutSantaWithThePhotoBomb #GreatestFansInTheWorld
