On Tuesday, the "Baywatch" star shared a video on his Instagram showing a fan park his big rig in the middle of traffic and run up to the actor's driver-side window to ask for a picture.
"Yeah but sometimes traffic is just gonna have to wait to make fans happy," Johnson wrote in the caption of the post.
Here's the full story from Johnson: "I was driving in my pick up truck after work and my guy here pulled up beside me, recognized me and started freaking out. I rolled the passenger window down to say hello and then he REALLY freaked out. Jumped out of his rig and came around to my side where he stood in the oncoming traffic lane. He said, "Holy shit Rock you're my hero, can I take a picture with you?" I said yeah man but let's pull over to the side and .. before I could even finish he was gone like a flash, "Hold on let me get my phone".. The light's turned green and now cars are coming towards him and driving around him. Not one car was beeping their horn because I'm sure they thought some road rage was going down."
The young man in the video struggled to keep his cool during the encounter with the charismatic movie star. After yelling "Oh my God" several times, the truck driver managed to take two photos with Johnson.
"No rage, just some big, brown, bald tattooed man in his pick up truck taking selfies in traffic. This dude put a grateful smile on my face and got a big ass laugh outta me as well," Johnson wrote on Instagram. "Besides the traffic jam we caused and his ass almost getting hit by oncoming traffic, making fans like this happy will always be the best part of fame."
Michael Nevin was on honeymoon in Orlando with his wife when he had his encounter with Johnson, later telling TooFab he loves The Rock "because he is such an inspirational person -- he was always the coolest. His sense of humor is on the same wavelength as mine. The Rock was always happy to make fun of himself and others while still owning every room he walked into"
