Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Pulls Over to Meet Fans Who Waited 3 Hours to See Him

On his way to run errands on Sunday, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson saw three girls by the road holding up signs asking for cars to honk—so he honked.

When he came back three hours later, the girls were still there. But they had changed the signs to try to get The Rock's attention.

It worked.

Here's the story, as told by Johnson:

#1 thing people ask me about is this story about these awesome girls. All ages and races - lucky dude to have the greatest fans in the world.


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


That's just the kind of guy Johnson is. When his fans go through all that just to meet him, he's going to take the time to interact with them. As his Instagram posts say, that's what he likes most about his fame.

The girls set out to spread a little Christmas cheer. As a bonus, they met The Rock. What a day.
