It is a widely known fact that Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock is a successful actor, wrestler and moreover, is a kind-hearted human being too. The world's highest paid actor recently gifted a brand new pick up truck to his stunt double for 17 years of hard work and dedication. Dwayne Johnson's stunt double, Tanoai Reed who also happens to be his cousin got a pick-up truck as a big thank you gift from 'The Rock' a couple of days back. Dwayne posted a video on Instagram in which he can be seen handing over the keys of the pick-up truck to Tanoai. At first, Tanoai thought that he and Dwayne will shoot a usual behind the scene video and was completely unaware about the surprise that was about to unfold. Tanoai was overwhelmed by Dwayne's surprise and broke into tears of happiness after receiving the amazing gift. The pick-up truck gifted by Dwayne Johnson is a Ford F150 and the particular unit appears to be a modified one rather than a stock model.

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 ????????
