His appreciation for Vancouver (and the lower mainland) has been showcased time and time again (via his social media posts) and it’s clear that locals and even our mayor can’t get of the big lovable lug.
Mayor Gregor Robertson has made it official by proclaiming October 19th to be “Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Day” (it’s “The Rock Proc”)!!!
And of course, The Rock shared the moment with millions via the following instagram post:
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 ✊
October 19th, 2018, I say we celebrate the day by hitting the gym HARD and chugging a few protein shakes.
WHO’S WITH ME?!?!?!
FYI: The Rock has been here working on his latest flick ‘Skyscraper’, which is scheduled to wrap by November 17th.
