Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and a very enthusiastic fan of his caused a traffic backup when they stopped in the middle of the road to take a selfie. Afterwards, Johnson shared a video of their encounter on Instagram and wrote a touching note to the fan.
“I was driving in my pick up truck after work and my guy here pulled up beside me, recognized me and started freaking out,” he wrote in the caption.
Johnson shared that he rolled the window down to say hi to the fan, but that only got him even more excited. The fan then asked for a selfie, got out of his car and came over to Johnson’s window.
“This dude put a grateful smile on my face and got a big ass laugh outta me as well,” Johnson continued in the caption. “Besides the traffic jam we caused and his ass almost getting hit by oncoming traffic, making fans like this happy will always be the best part of fame. Thanks dude for making my day.”

Yeah but sometimes traffic is just gonna have to wait to make fans happy 😉 I was driving in my pick up truck after work and my guy here pulled up beside me, recognized me and started freaking out. I rolled the passenger window down to say hello and then he REALLY freaked out. Jumped out of his rig and came around to my side where he stood in the oncoming traffic lane. He said, "Holy shit Rock you're my hero, can I take a picture with you?" I said yeah man but let's pull over to the side and .. before I could even finish he was gone like a flash, "Hold on let me get my phone".. The light's turned green and now cars are coming towards him and driving around him. Not one car was beeping their horn because I'm sure they thought some road rage was going down. No rage, just some big, brown, bald tattooed man in his pick up truck taking selfies in traffic. This dude put a grateful smile on my face and got a big ass laugh outta me as well. Besides the traffic jam we caused and his ass almost getting hit by oncoming traffic, making fans like this happy will always be the best part of fame. Thanks dude for making my day. 🤙🏾 #INeedDarkerWindowTint #GreatestFansInTheWorld
In the video of the encounter, the fan can be seen arriving at Johnson’s window out of breath and snapping several selfies with him as Johnson warns him he might get hit and explains what’s going on to the camera.
“I got the greatest fans in the world,” he says after the fan runs off. “I appreciate that”
