VIDEO: Aaron Rodgers Records Prom Video for HS Students Affected by California Wildfires

Aaron Rodgers might have made his name in Green Bay, Wisconsin, but his heart is still in Northern California. The Packers quarterback and Chico native recorded a surprise video for Paradise High School's prom. The Paradise area is among the communities that have been damaged the worst by the California wildfires.

"Dance your ass off," Rodgers said. "And, enjoy this special time in your life, especially you, seniors. Things will never be like this again."

Rodgers isn't the only big name to pitch in with an upbeat message. Several other celebrities have chimed in with a similar video, including Steve Carrell, Gabrielle Union, Ben Stiller, and even Imagine Dragons.

Rodgers, who grew up 20 minutes away from Paradise, donated $1 million to wildfire rehab efforts in Butte County, where he went to high school and community college.

While Rodgers occasionally gets criticized in the media for being passive-aggressive and emotionally detached, this was a pretty cool gesture for a rebuilding community in need of it.
