Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio just sent a surprise video to a superfan, Catherine Lane, that had her in tears at her college graduation — further proof that the Jersey Shore star has a heart of gold.
The video was in response to Catherine Lane's photo of her graduation cap, which she shared on social media a few days before her big day: "My proudest accomplishment of my college career is my graduation cap," she wrote on Twitter.
The cap was decorated with a photo of Pauly D, along with the words "grads are here" — a spin on Pauly D's catchphrase from the original Jersey Shore.
The clever photo received over 50,000 likes, and evidently got the attention of DJ Pauly D himself. The 37-year-old reality TV star sent Catherine a video message, congratulating her in true Pauly D style.
"The grads are here! I love graduations this time of year!" Pauly D began.
He continued, "Hey Catherine, it’s your boy, DJ Pauly D. I just wanted to congratulate you on your graduation. And I see that it falls on a #Jerzday. So I want to make sure you celebrate and then go home and watch a brand new episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. And keep a little Pauly positivity in your life, and just know that the best years are yet to come. Yeeeah buddy!”
Catherine received the video at the absolute perfect moment: In the middle of her graduation ceremony. It was an emotional time, to say the least.
Catherine was unbelievably excited about the video — and can you blame her?!
"THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE," she said in a retweet of Pauly's message.
It turned out to be the highlight of her special day, thanks to Pauly D and the Jersey Shore team.
Now, only one question remains: Did Catherine really go home and watch Jersey Shore: Family Reunion after the celebrating was over?! The world needs to know!
