The Rock Surprised His Longtime Stunt Double With A Brand New Truck (VIDEO)

The Rock Gives Stunt Double New Truck

Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson probably isn’t perfect. But his public image certainly is. The man is always saying and doing wonderful things on social media. It’s just impossible not to like him.

Today we’ve got yet another story about The Rock being an awesome dude. This one involves his longtime stunt double, Tanoai Reed, who also happens to be The Rock’s cousin.

Reed has served as Johnson’s stunt double ever since he broke into movies as The Scorpion King in 2001’s The Mummy Returns. Over the years, as The Rock has evolved into one of the biggest movie stars in the world, Tanoai Reed has been right there with him.

Unfortunately, Reed is currently recuperating from injury suffered while doing his job. However, Johnson decided this would be a good time to show Reed how grateful he is for all the hard work and dedication…by surprising Reed with a brand new custom truck.

Here’s what The Rock wrote on Instagram:

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!

Needless to say, Tanoai Reed is totally blown away and moved to tears by his friend’s generosity.

Take a look:

The world definitely needs more of The Rock. Maybe not as President of the United States. But certainly in other ways.
