We all love The Rock, especially Vancouver since he's been practically living here for the past few weeks whilst filming his newest movie, Skyscraper. The romance between our city and the DJ is real.
But apparently, he now has his own "holiday" in Vancouver too. What?!
Yup, you heard right. Just recently, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson officially proclaimed October 19 to be "Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Day in the city of Vancouver" because "[he is] the man" (which we totally agree), and to thank him for bringing production to Vancouver and creating thousands of jobs for locals.
It’s official: The Rock Day. Such a cool (and bad ass) honor to have the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, present this proclamation to me last night on set. I’m a grateful man to be in the business of making big movies and entertainment that serve multiple purposes around the world. One of those critical purposes is providing jobs for thousands of hard working people, local businesses and economies every time we bring a production to town. Jobs and opportunities for people. And free waffles for me. Thank you Mayor and your staff for being so gracious and welcoming to myself and our entire production crew to your city. And thank you for this honor and thanks for being such a cool guy. Vancouver will always hold a special place in my DNA. Next time drinks on me.. #ItsOfficial #TheRockProc #October19th #Vancouver #TheRockDay ✊🏾
Big ups to The Rock for being The Man 👊.
