Michigan State Football Head Coach Mark Dantonio and The Rock have formed a Twitter friendship over the film 'Moana.'

It started on Monday during a press conference when a phone went off with a ringtone from the film, which starred The Rock.

The phone was actually that of a reporter and not Dantonio.

When The Rock caught wind of it, he tweeted out, "LOVE THIS. I've played for coaches who remain bad ass and stoic thru ANYTHING. Coach Mark knows damn well what he wants to bring into song!" followed by "Watch closely and for a nano second, Coach D was ready to smile big. Props for staying in the moment. Sing it loud and proud coach!"

Dantonio responded on Tuesday morning, thanking The Rock for bringing a smile to their day.

"'Hey, it's okay it's okay, you're welcome! Well, come to think of it I gotta go' - Thanks for bringing a smile to our day! #GoGreen."

That's when The Rock once again tweeted out saying they have to smile sometimes through the losses.
