Watch: Dwayne Johnson surprises fan with new truck

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson had fans in tears as he shared a moving video of the moment he gave a truck to a veteran as a gift.

The touching video, shared on Instagram, shows US Navy vet Oscar Rodriguez reading out a note from the Jungle Cruise star, which said: “Thank you for your service brother, enjoy your new truck.”

He then collapsed to his knees in tears before getting up and throwing his arms around the Hollywood star.

“Today was a good day,” The Rock wrote.

“Merry Christmas @coach_orod and enjoy your new truck.”

The star said he’d invited fans to a screening of his new film Red Notice and wanted to do something “BIG… something MASSIVE… something unforgettable for one fan”.

He came up with the idea of giving away the Porsche Taycan that he drives in the movie, but when that didn’t work out the actor decided to “do one better”.

“I gathered as much information as I could about everyone in the audience and ultimately, Oscar’s story moved me.

“Takes care of his 75 year old mom. Personal trainer. Leader at his church. Provides support and meals for women victimised 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,” he went on. “Just love.”
