AceShowbiz - Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson went above and beyond for his fans. Having been moved by a story of Navy veteran Oscar Rodriguez, the "Red Notice" actor surprised him with his personal custom truck.
On Wednesday, November 24, the 49-year-old shared a video of him going to the screening of his new movie. In the clip, he's seen giving a shot-out to Oscar before inviting him to come forward. "Your story really moved me because I hear that you're a personal trainer, you're always keeping it positive and motivational and optimistic," he gushed.
Stunned by The Rock's surprise appearance, Oscar marveled, "I'm just speechless. I'm so glad to meet you, I feel so encouraged right now, so uplifted. I'm encouraged by your motivation." He added, "I follow you on Instagram, I listen to your words. You inspire me. And yeah, let's do it. Let's change the world, one person, at a time."
The two men later exited the theater before the former professional wrestler gave a small card inside his black truck. Oscar read the note, which stated, "Thank you for your service brother. Enjoy your new truck." He then screamed and cried in excitement.
In the caption of the video, The Rock penned, "Today was a good day. Merry Christmas @coach_orod and enjoy your new truck. I invited fans to a special theater screening of RED NOTICE and I wanted to do something cool for all of them."
"Free concessions, @projectrock, @teremana, @zoaenergy, @saltandstraw ice cream. Free everything and a great time at the movies!" he added. "I also wanted to do something BIG… something MASSIVE… something unforgettable for one fan."
The Rock went on to note that his "original idea was to give away the Porsche Taycan that I drive in the movie, Red Notice. So we reached out to Porsche, but they said no." He further explained, "But I still said, yes. I'll do one better. I'll give away my personal custom truck as the gift. My baby."
"I gathered as much information as I could about everyone in the audience and ultimately, Oscar's story moved me," the husband of Lauren Hashian continued. "Takes care of his 75 year old mom. Personal trainer. Leader at his church. Provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence. Proud & humble Navy veteran. Kind human being."
"Oscar said it right, just before he drove away ~ it's just love. That's all it is, brother. Just love," he concluded. "Go enjoy your new truck dude and Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!"
