The stuntman’s emotions did hit the rockbottom for a second!

We all know how generous and humble Dwayne Johnson is, and here’s another instance to prove the same. The owner of the ‘People’s Elbow’ gifted a handsome, jacked-up Ford F-150 to his stunt double and cousin, Tanoai Reed. The two have been working together for the last 17 years, starting with Dwayne’s The Scorpion King in 2002.

Did Reed Smell What The Rock Was Cookin’?

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 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 🤟🏾

The Rock called Reed on the context of shooting a behind-the-scenes video. In the background, we can see a black, lifted truck with a big red bow on the hood. The Rock posted a video of the same with an emotional caption, thanking not just the stuntman for his hard work over the years, but also the entire stunt community. “It’s been an honor, and I want to say from the bottom of my heart, I love you, I thank you, and enjoy your new truck," he said, before giving Reed the surprise gift.
