Watch The Rock Surpise His Stunt Double With a Beastly Custom Pickup
Call him “Dwanta Claus.”
It’s the middle of summer, but that didn’t stop Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson from transforming into “Dwanta Claus.”
The larger-than-life movie star hooked up his longtime stunt double and cousin, Tanoi Reed, with a custom truck in a now-viral video.
The ridiculously jacked lookalikes stood side-by-side to shoot what was staged as a behind-the-scenes interview.
“When I saw him, I was like, ‘Oh my God, he looks like my twin,'” Johnson says in the beginning of the clip.
“The truth is, he’s been an incredible partner and brother to me. It’s been an honor and I want to say from the bottom of my heart, I love you, Uso, I thank you, and enjoy your new truck.”
Reed was immediately brought to tears at the sight of his brand new blacked-out Ford pickup.
“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,” Johnson revealed in an Instagram post.
“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.”
“Love you uso and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years,” Johnson added.
Despite negative comments from a few trolls, reactions to the heartfelt moment have been overwhelmingly positive.
Finally…some good news, way to go Rock 👍💕🇺🇸!!!

It’s not the first time Johnson has shown incredible generosity.
Earlier this year, the Skyscraper star responded to a high school student’s prom proposal by renting out an entire theater so she and her classmates could enjoy a private screening of Rampage.
We really are starting to think that The Rock can do no wrong.
