"When he hugged me he was shaking and giving that loud grown man cry. Not only will I never forget this day, but stuff like this will always be the best part of fame," the Fate of the Furious star began his lengthy post, along with a video of the encounter.
On Wednesday, Johnson and Jimmy Fallon, who unveiled his new ride, “Race Through New York” at Universal Studios Orlando, teamed up to surprise some unsuspecting parkgoers. And, subsequently, gave one fan the shock of a lifetime.
"This fateful day all went down like this.. my good bud Jimmy Fallon was shooting his show all week long in Orlando at Universal Studios theme park. I flew in on Wed morning to shoot his show," Johnson explained. "We always like to do comedy bits so we decided to dress up as ourselves and photobomb people at the park."
"Well as fate would have it, out of the THOUSANDS of people walking around Universal, the show's producers chose Michael Nevin and his wife Jessica to take a fake picture on the Tonight Show stage," he continued. "Then the joke is me and Jimmy come out and photobomb their pic and surprise them when we take our heads off."
"Not only were Michael and Jessica on THEIR HONEYMOON but he's also been one of my biggest fans since he was 5yrs old. He has not one, but THREE tattoos dedicated to me," Johnson added. "This reaction was priceless and I'm still shaking my head at the chain of events that had to happen for this one moment of awesomeness to go down."
"Thank you universe. Thank you fate. Easily one of the BEST parts of fame. I'm a lucky SOB," Johnson concluded. "And Mike thanks for being the greatest/coolest fan and congrats to you and Jessica on your new marriage. My one bit of advice is make sure you learn the four most important words that make any marriage work, 'Yes, dear you're right.'"
