YouTube star David Dobrik was left heartbroken after comedian Kevin Hart announced he’d get a chance to meet The Rock – only to be told he was actually being pranked.
David Dobrik is one of those YouTubers who is comfortably sitting on the verge of certified celebrity status, having befriended and made videos with the likes of Kylie Jenner and Justin Bieber in the past.
Now, David has made an appearance in Kevin Hart’s ‘What the Fit?’ web series, where he inspires people to work out and get in shape– and had his classic practical jokes turned on him, for once.
While Dobrik himself is typically the one pulling the pranks and making jokes with his friends, he got a taste of his own medicine when he appeared in Hart’s show, where he helped conduct a huge public workout in Los Angeles.
In Hollywood, anything is possible, and that definitely seemed to be the case when Kevin Hart introduced him to long-time friend and colleague Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson – arguably one of the biggest celebrities in the world.
Naturally, everybody involved in the workout lost their minds – including Dobrik himself, whose mouth immediately dropped in disbelief that he was about to meet The Rock.

Unfortunately, Hart later made it clear that Johnson wasn’t there at all, and that he had pranked them all, hysterically laughing at his own joke.
“I got so excited,” Dobrik said to Hart after the reveal. “My face went numb.”
He wasn’t the only one, either; you can see the pure look of disappointment across the entire crowd, with David even pointing out that one girl was crying due to the excitement of the moment.
Hart simply laughed it off and said: “F**k him, we’re leading this charge,” before getting on with the routine – though David made it clear that meeting The Rock would’ve been far more exciting than any workout.
It’s fair to say that if David managed to get both Kevin Hart and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the vlog, it might have Dobrik’s biggest video ever.
