Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, also known as “Dwanta Claus” according to his Instagram, decided to surprise his cousin and stunt double Tanoai Reed with a gift following the man’s return to the set post-injury.
Awww. According to Mashable, Reed burst into tears at the sight of the new vehicle, after assuming he’d been summoned to shoot a behind-the-scenes clip with Johnson.
“He’s been an incredible partner and brother to me,” Johnson says in the clip. “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.”

The Rock has a thing for buying cars, which he divulged on Jimmy Kimmel Live!:
He bought his mom a new car for Christmas:
He bought his dad a new Cadillac Escalade after a hip replacement, and two cousins got new cars, a Lamborghini and a Honda Civic.
Can't wait to see what vehicle @TheRock buys me when he's on his next motor spending spree I'm hoping rv or 4×4 but seriously what nice guy he's bought his whole family new cars from a lambo to a very smart pick up for his cousin /stunt double a heartwarming story

The Rock admitted:
I have this problem, I do have an issue. It’s a little sickness that I have. Where I really enjoy buying cars and giving cars to people … I’m a big, brown, bald, tattooed Oprah.
Well, sign us up for The Rock’s show, whenever that happens, and hopefully we will all get new cars.
