Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson showed up to surprise this guy by officiating his surprise wedding. The video includes plenty of tears and laughter. And remember Rex from Napoleon Dynamite? His Memorial Day pants make the video, too.
The Rock teamed up with Screen Junkies to prank one of its correspondents, Nick Mundy, who thinks that he has to work on a bit with the Rock to promote his upcoming film, San Andreas (San Andreas hits theaters May 29). In fact, the Rock is there to both promote his new movie and officiate Mundy's wedding to his fiancée, Dilara Karabas. (He got officially ordained, so this is legit.) His co-workers documented Mundy's reaction as he went from having one of the worst days at work to the best day of his life.
Check it out. Then be encouraged about your own wedding video.
