Dwayne Johnson Gives His Personal Pickup Truck Away To Shocked Navy Veteran, Telling Him: “Merry Christmas To You And Your Family!”

Dwayne Johnson posted a video of himself yesterday as he surprised an audience gathered to watch his hit Netflix film, Red Notice, on the big screen. Johnson provided free concessions, shoes, tequila, energy drinks and ice cream for all.

“There’s a dude here, I read his story and I was really impressed by his story. I want to highlight him,” Johnson told the crowd. “His name is Oscar Rodriguez.”

Johnson went on to deliver Rodriguez his own It’s a Wonderful Life moment saying, “Your story really moved me.” The star then read off a laundry list of the good Rodriguez does in the world: He takes care of his 75 year old mom. He’s a personal trainer, helping people to get fit. He’s a leader at his church. He provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence. He’s a Navy veteran and, possibly most important, a kind human being.

That bit is key, because when the star led Rodriguez outside to check out his custom, beefed-up truck in the parking lot, Rodriguez recognized it from social media: “I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen you in this truck!”

As an overwhelmed Rodriguez began to cry Johnson told him, “You do a lot of good for people, brother. The gym. The church. Your mom. Women. Women who need that support. Who are going through it.”
