I've heard of kids crying when mascots approach them, but never really adults. It's something only Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can do. He was out with Jimmy Fallon at Universal Studios. The two dressed up in exaggerated mascot versions of themselves to photobomb people. Then, they took their heads off to reveal their actual identities.
One of the people that they photobombed was a big guy, covered in tattoos. And one of those tattoos was of The Rock, himself, on his leg. And he started to cry.
