Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson didn’t get a net worth of $220 million by sitting on his butt all day — he’s been making money moves. Thanks to his latest film, Skyscraper, the WWE-star-turned-actor-turned-movie-producer’s company, Seven Bucks Productions has earned $1.6 billion+ in just 7 months.
Not too shabby for an individual who at one point had his dreams of playing pro football crushed. Now everyone in the world wants a piece of The Rock — whether it’s to put him in leading Hollywood films, or just to hang out with him.
Jordan Baker’s the latter. He wants to chill with The Rock so hard that he’s tweeted at him 100 days in a row hoping to get his chance to kick it with the Great One.
The Anderson University college student from Indiana officially began his journey by making his intentions very clear.
He thought that maybe coming up with creative photoshops of himself hanging out with Hollywood’s biggest action star would sweeten the deal and finally elicit a response from the People’s Champ.
It seemed like each and every day, Baker stepped his game up.
He even went so far as to bring fanny-pack Rock into the picture, along with this weirdly poetic-looking meme tweet.
When news of The Rock’s new baby daughter broke up, Baker was there to congratulate him and offer a friendship baby-sitting discount.
Baker tried every trick at his disposal, even trying to prove that The Rock would fit right in with his current group of friends.
He didn’t want The Rock to think he was desperate, so he tweeted at him to let him know that there were some days that were off-limits for them to meet.
He ultimately took a break from the photoshops and turned to memes and other methods to entice The Rock to hang out with him – like polls.
And the Distracted Boyfriend meme.
He even turned to this oldie but goodie. Still, no dice.
Nevertheless, Jordan persevered. Once word got out of his persistence, Twitter rallied behind him.
He kept posting memes and memes.
Until finally, he reached Day 100. But still there was no acknowledgment from The Rock in sight.
People urged him to follow his heart and keep trying.
Advice that proved to come at the right time. Because word finally got around to show business’ busiest man and he responded to the hopeful college student.
So it definitely wasn’t the response that Baker was hoping for, but maybe he could apply for a job with Seven Bucks Productions and get to hang out with The Rock at work.
