Skyscraper star Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson made his stunt double cousin cry tears of joy as he surprises him with a brand new truck.
His stunt double who is also his cousin, Tanoai Reed has been recovering from severe injuries from a stunt. The Rock gifted the man whom he has been working with since the beginning of his career, gifted him a truck as a sign of gratitude for having broken multiple bones and other severe injuries for the sake of Dwayne.
The video was uploaded on both Facebook and Instagram by the superstar, and in the video, they initially talk about all the stunts and their first time working together. Throughout the first few minutes of the footage, he can be seen complimenting Reed for all he has done for him and also mentioned how they grew together in the industry.
As he is showering Reed with overwhelming compliments, he suddenly tells him to enjoy his new truck. The precious part of the clip is when Reed comes to his senses and realizes that he is getting a new truck.
He gets shocked for a moment and holds his head in disbelief and breaks down into tears and hugs Dwayne. As he proceeds to cry, both of them head towards the truck, and Dwayne hands him over the keys to his new automobile.
SURPRISE! I love handing over keys I love you brother and enjoy your new truck! Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several “Stuntman of the Year” honors. All done with one goal in mind - deliver the best movie possible to the world. I had this custom pick up truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he’s still recovering from a stunt injury) while we give what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together. As you’ll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that’s the drivers cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise. Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business. Love you uso and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years. We’re just getting started. Enjoy your new truck! #LetsRoll
In the captions, Dwayne even wrote:
