Mark Wahlberg was part of an epic graduation gift.
The 50-year-old actor was one of several celebrities to send a congratulations video to a Faith, an upcoming high school graduate. The best part, her dad planned the whole thing.
“Hey Faith, Mark Wahlberg here. I just wanted to slide into your high school graduation video and join everyone in offering our congratulations and wishing you all the best.”
In addition to Wahlberg, Randall Park, Joshua Bassett, Gaten Matarazzo, Kat Dennings, Lori Loughlin and Jonathan Groff also sent congratulations. Bob Saget, Jensen Ackles, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, J.K. Simmons, Drake Bell, Garth Brooks and Chris Sullivan made an appearance in the video as well.
Although Faith only posted little snippets of the star’s videos, some of the clips were more than a minute long she stated in the caption. The caption also stated that she was “in tears by the end.”
In a follow up video, Faith revealed that her dad is not involved in television nor is a producer. He currently works in IT for the Marines. While most people assumed her dad used cameo, he actually took a different approach.
“I made a list of all the actors that Faith grew up watching and I emailed them on Thursdays. I think that’s what my trick is: emailing people on Thursdays. That’s when you get a response from people,” Faith’s dad said in the second video posted to TikTok. “And then I do a follow-up email on Fridays and you’re good to go.”
“He also found all the contact information from LinkedIn. He found producers and publicists and agents and all that jazz. That’s how he ended up being able to contact the celebrities,” added Faith. “While he was messaging them, he was talking about how I was a big fan and kind of the stuff I went through this year and how I was graduating and his plans.”
