The Rock And SpongeBob Are Now Best Friends on Twitter

The two legends discussed the origin of Johnson's nickname and their crazy college hi-jinx.

Over the weekend, two of the biggest icons of the 21st century came together on Twitter. SpongeBob Squarepants reached out to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and a glorious friendship was born. The nautically nonsensical sponge took advantage of #SaySomethingNiceDay by asking Johnson about the origin of his nickname and whether it was inspired by Squarepants’ best friend Patrick.

Yesterday, Johnson responded to SpongeBob’s friendly inquiry by listing several of his memorable nicknames, including the “inappropriate one” he earned back in college. He also let the Krusty Krab fry-cook know that he loved his work, returning the favor despite the fact that #SaySomethingNiceDay had already ended.

SpongeBob then let Johnson know that he may have gotten a couple of ‘cool’ nicknames during his time at boating school, as well, before offering his own take on Johnson’s famous wrestling catchphrase. And just like that, a wonderful new Twitter friendship was born on the basis of mutual admiration and mischievous college hi-jinx.
