Dwayne Johnson has recently given his thanks and his own truck to one fan who inspired him. Dwayne Johnson invited fans to a special theater screening of his latest movie Red Notice as he wanted to do something cool for all of them and something unforgettable for one fan. The Red Notice star, 49, shared a heartwarming video where he showed fans how he surprised Navy vet Oscar Rodriguez with the actor’s own “personal custom truck” after hearing his good deeds.
Johnson wrote in the caption of the Instagram video he posted on Wednesday, “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!” Johnson wrote, adding, “I also wanted to do something BIG… something MASSIVE…something unforgettable for one fan.”
However, Johnson’s original idea was to give away the Porsche Taycan, that he drove in Red Notice. But as the Porsche declined, Johnson decided to give away his personal custom truck as a gift. Later, Dwayne Johnson who is popularly known as The Rock gathered as much information as he could about everyone in the audience, and ultimately, Oscar’s story moved him.
The Jungle Cruise star’s fan, Oscar is a Navy veteran and a personal trainer who takes care of his 75-year-old mom. He also provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence. Meanwhile, in the video, Johnson is seen giving Rodriguez a card explaining that the truck was now his. Overcome with emotion, Rodriguez dropped to the floor and began to cry, asking, “What the heck is happening?” before giving the actor a hug.
However, the moment came after Johnson surprised Rodriguez at a movie theater screening of Red Notice. “Your story really moved me because I hear that you’re a personal trainer, you’re always keeping it positive and motivational and optimistic,” Johnson told Rodriguez in front of moviegoers.
Meanwhile, Rodriguez said, “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. 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.” After seeing Rodriguez drive off with his new truck, Johnson reflected on the moment, saying, “It was just an honor for me to give a little bit of joy to someone who deserves a lot more than just my truck.”
