The Rock Recounts Story About Sideswiping a Fan’s Car in Fantastic Instagram Post (Pic)
Rolling Stone just recently put Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at No. 9 on their list of the 100 Best Instagram Accounts in the world.
Posts like the one you’re about to see are why.
Back in May, Johnson was on his way to the set of Central Intelligence somewhere in the Boston area when he sideswiped another car. Being the decent human that he is, The Rock didn’t just drive off. He turned around to make sure the owner of the other car had his info.
The result was a very memorable encounter that The Rock shared in an Instagram post on Monday. Take a look:
Here’s a fun story to start your week off… I’m driving to set in my pick up truck – music blasting – I’m singing away like I’m having a one man party in my truck – then I hear a loud BANG. What the hell..? Look in my rear view and see I sideswiped another pick up that was parked in the street and destroyed the side mirror. First thing I thought was, “Aw shit.. someone’s not gonna be happy..”. I flipped a U-turn and drove back to scene. Just as I got out of my truck a guy was walking across the street to his truck. I said “Sir, is this your truck?”. He stopped and stared at me for a good 5 seconds, looked around his neighborhood, looked back at me and “Yes it is. Why?”. I said “Well, sorry to tell ya I sideswiped it and knocked the hell outta your mirror and may have done even more damage. You give me your info and I’ll leave you mine and I’ll take care of everything”. He stared at me again, cocked his head sideways and said..”Uhhh.. Are you The Rock?”. I said “Yup”. He broke out into a huge smile and said “Wow, this is gonna be an awesome story!”. I started belly laughing at that, then he started laughing and before you know it we’re both standing in the middle of the street pointing to his mirror and laughing like two ol’ crazy buddies. I checked back in with him a few days later and he refused to accept any money and said he fixed the damage himself. Want to thank Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass. for being so cool about the whole thing. Life is funny cause you never know who you’re gonna run into… and sure as hell never know who’s truck you’re gonna sideswipe while driving to work.
Mr. Audie Bridges of Wakefield, Mass, seems like a pretty cool guy. However, somebody should probably tell him that The Rock’s last two movies have grossed $470 million dollars. So, you know, he really should have let The Rick pay to fix his car.
