Dwayne Johnson surprised a fan whose story touched him before Thanksgiving with an early Christmas gift.
The 49-year-old “Red Notice” actor posted a touching video on Instagram of him giving his customized Ford F-150 Raptor to Navy veteran Oscar Rodriguez.
Johnson wants to do “something fantastic” for all of his fans who attended a special theater showing of his new film, “Red Notice.” Moviegoers were provided with complimentary beverages and ice cream while watching the flick.
According to one fan, The Rock wished to do something “big” and “incredible.” His first goal was to give away the Porsche Taycan he drove in the movie, but Porsche declined.
Johnson went above and beyond when he gave away his custom-made car, which he calls his “baby.”
“I gathered as much data as I could on everyone in the crowd, and ultimately, Oscar’s story affected me,” he said on Instagram.
Rodriguez embodies what it is to be a decent person. He’s a quiet Navy veteran who cares for his 75-year-old mother, volunteers at his church, and helps women who have been victims of domestic abuse.
Johnson can be seen in the video making an unexpected cameo at the screening, much to the delight of his fans. He then named Rodriguez and invited him to sit in the front row with him.
“Your story really struck me because I hear you’re a personal trainer, and you’re continuously keeping things positive, motivating, and optimistic,” Johnson said to Rodriguez as the crowd watched.
“I’m flabbergasted,” Rodriguez replied. I’m so delighted to meet you; I’m feeling very encouraged and energized right now. Your motivation inspires me. I follow you on Instagram and pay attention to what you say. You motivate me. And, sure, let’s do it. Let us transform the world, one person at a time. ”
Johnson then took Rodriguez outside to show him something—a card he had written with the name “Oscar” on it.
Rodriguez had no notion that the words in the letter would impact his life. He took out the card and read it out loud. It stated, “Thank you for your service, brother.” Have a good time with your new truck.
As Rodriguez wailed alongside the truck, he learned what had transpired.
“What the heck is going on?” he said. Rodriguez stood up and, filled with emotion, hugged Johnson.
I had the feeling this was your truck, bro! “This is my truck!” Rodriguez yelled at the actor. It is now yours! ”
Rodriguez then showed his girlfriend, with whom he was hanging out over FaceTime.
Near the end of the film, the new owner of the Ford F-150 Raptor is seen driving away with his new car. “It’s simply love, bro,” Rodriguez remarked before Johnson did. That was correct.
“It was a tremendous honor for me to deliver a little bit of joy to someone who deserved a lot more than just my truck,” Johnson said, before joking that he needed to figure out how to get home because he didn’t have a ride.
Rodriguez later posted the same video on Instagram, along with a shot of himself standing in front of the vehicle.
“Words cannot explain how blessed and appreciative I am!!” I kneel in astonishment and respect before you, the holy God, with my whole heart, with my whole life, and with my deepest being,” he wrote before reading the Bible. Yahweh, you are the joy of my soul. How could I ever forget the kindness you’ve shown me?” Psalms 103:1-2 TPT. ”
