The Rock recorded a special message for Lana Condor and she freaked out


I finally watched To All the Boys: PS I still Love You. I didn’t love it. I liked it, but not anywhere close to the first one and I never got butterflies in my stomach. But I did appreciate the themes they took on. However, as you all know, I am a big fan of Lana Condor. I am also a fan of Dwayne The Rock Johnson. So believe me when I tell you, this story brings me joy. Lana had never made a secret of her adoration of DJ. She presented her case on Netflix’s Who I Stan bit, making the indisputable argument that, “When you put The Rock and a huge quantity of food in the same picture that’s game over.”

Following that declaration, Lana appeared on A Little Late with Lilly Singh, who also happens to be a fan of DJ. Lilly and Lana shared their I Heart DJ moments, including the time when Lana tweeted at DJ and he replied:

So naturally, Lana endorsed The Rock for President:

Following that story and a few more fawning comments from both women, Lilly asked if Lana had seen DJ’s most recent video, which she had not, of course, because it was a message he’d taped just for Lana when Lilly texted him that Lana was going to be on the show. It played, and Lana freaked the hell out – it was adorable:

Okay, so that kind of gave me butterflies. Lana’s squeal is so pure, and kudos to Lilly for the perfect set-up in the lead-in. At the end, Lilly pointed out that DJ going that extra step for his fans (the video was his idea) is just like him, which is true. (It also makes me think that the sweatshirt she asked to be made in the first Instagram will happen soon.) But even more than the video itself, I will forever love DJ for copping to a To All the Boys I Loved persona when he told Lilly to talk him up to Lana. That was precious, DJ should totally appear in the next one.

But no Dwayne The Rock Johnson lovefest is complete without Kevin Hart’s contribution, which DJ ensured by tagging Kevin in his caption. And although the jury is still out on Kevin’s redemption, I have to say, this made me snort out my coffee:

Your head looks like a penis in that FaceTime video…these women have horrible taste ….I can’t wait until they find out that you smell like lion piss 😂😂😂

OMG – DJ’s head does look like a penis in the video. I can’t unsee it now. So I didn’t love TATB:PSILY, but I do love Lana and Lilly. And I love DJ and his Peter Kavinsky impression but now I can only see a talking penis doing a Peter K impression. This has been a very confusing post for me, please respect my privacy as I sort this out.

    the only thing that could have made this better is if he’d given Lily an oversized sweatshirt with his face on it to give to Lana

    This was lovely!

    My feelings about P.S. I Still Love You: yeah ok, it’s not as good as the original (and not nearly enough exploitation of the chemistry between the leads for my liking!!) BUT I appreciate that it could’ve been worse. In fact, I was EXPECTING it to be worse – the first was charming and I kind of thought they should have left it alone – but parts of the sequel were actually really good, like the surprising scene in the treehouse with Lara Jean and the mean girl ex-friend. Plus I like the characters so it was an enjoyable watch.

    My daughter finally made me watch the first one and it’s cute, though she quickly tired of me saying, “yeah…it doesn’t happen like that. No, that’s not realistic.” I did appreciate the shout out to kombucha (my beverage of choice) and Yakult (my kids’ beverage of choice, though that stuff is pricey).

    Even though he has no acting chops, his larger-than-life personality and generosity are what makes him special. And, of course, now we know if a pen15 part ‘rises,’ head be perfect. HE’D be perfect.

    I enjoy how grateful DJ is about his life, and the fans that got him there. I’ve never heard a bad word about him

    Omg I love the Rock and Lana Condor too. I loved To All the Boys I loved Before soooo much that I haven’t been able to bring myself to watch the sequel yet. One day it will be right, but not yet

    I love ‘LC’ and her scream/hand hold is just the cutest!!!

    About TATBILB2; it definitely was not half as good as the first one. The first one was so well directed and edited, the music was great and there were so many 80s, 90s references. I watched it 6 times. The second I watched once only out of love for the first. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the gem the first one was. The best thing about #2 was the actor who played John Ambrose. Lara Jean should have picked him!
