This Kid Asked The Rock to Hang Out With Him 100 Days Straight — He Finally Responded

This Kid Asked The Rock to Hang Out With Him 100 Days Straight — He Finally Responded

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.

image

He even went so far as to bring fanny-pack Rock into the picture, along with this weirdly poetic-looking meme tweet.

image

When news of The Rock’s new baby daughter broke up, Baker was there to congratulate him and offer a friendship baby-sitting discount.

image

Baker tried every trick at his disposal, even trying to prove that The Rock would fit right in with his current group of friends.

image

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.

image

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.

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.

image

He kept posting memes and memes.

Until finally, he reached Day 100. But still there was no acknowledgment from The Rock in sight.

image

People urged him to follow his heart and keep trying.

image

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.

image

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.

The Director Of 'The Last Jedi' Just Responded To Massive Backlash On The Internet

It has been a week since The Last Jedi released and the world is still torn on it. While everyone agrees that it was a very, very different kind of Star Wars film, no one can seem to agree if that is a good thing or not. Should the franchise remain what we know and love? Or should it evolve into something different?

Wherever you fall on this debate, I, for one at least think it is good we are having it. One of the biggest complaints about Hollywood is that they make the same things over and over again. So shouldn’t we be wanting something new? 

Was The Last Jedi too new?

Director Rian Johnson has finally chimed in on this issue. While I think we all suspected that he would stand by his work, he did also mention that dividing people was never his intention. 

But much like The Last Jedi itself people are really divided on Johnson’s answer. 

This will be a fight that lasts a long time. It will only end when the light side and the dark side can strike a balance.

Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' Breaks Billboard Top 10, And Carey Just Responded

Christmas albums are a guilty pleasure. If you play me some Yuletide songs from December 26h until November 30th of the following year, I’ll roll my eyes and dream of the different ways I can drop-kick you into oblivion.

However, from December 1st until the 25th, I’d really love it if you could just blast Christmas songs all day. I don’t even care what they are, I don’t care how slow they are, I don’t care how old they are, I don’t even care what language they’re in – I wanna hear them.

I mean everything about the song: the music video, the lyrics, Mariah’s Christmas pajamas and the bell sounds in it are nothing short of perfection.

And as it turns out, there are tons of people who agree with me, I mean how else would a song that debuted in 1994, somehow, 23 years later, make it to the Billboard Top 10 chart, if it wasn’t absolutely adored?

That’s right: The holiday staple beat out a bunch of new releases to break into the top ten play chart because it’s that friggin’ good.

Mariah Carey was super thankful for the resurgence and let her fans know.

And apparently they’re called lambs, which is about a good a name as any, I guess? Unless Maybe Carey really likes shawarma or something.

Is it an indication of our generation’s obsession with everything ’90s?

Or maybe it’s because Carey is somehow viewed as a plucky underdog who had to persevere the test of time?

I mean that can’t be right, it’s not like the song wasn’t successful when it debuted. 

People started taking a stab at how they thought Mariah was taking the news.

While others brought up irrefutable points.

I mean come on, it’s not like they’re wrong, are they?

Apparently there’s a movement now to bring “All I Want for Christmas Is You” out of the top 10 and into Billboard’s Top 5 category.

I mean, why stop there? Why not make it gun for that number one spot? 

Let’s make it happen people. Let’s do it for Mariah. No…not Mariah – for CHRISTMAS.
