Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson can do no wrong. After effectively proving that he's one of the most electrifying men in sports entertainment as The Rock, he went on to conquer Hollywood. Now, he just proved that he's an overall good guy after gifting his custom truck to a Navy veteran.
Heartwarming video shows just how big The Rock's heart is
The Rock most recently starred in the action-comedy film, Red Notice. The Netflix original film brings together Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot. Although the film was distributed by Netflix, it saw a limited theatrical release before it hit the streaming platform. At one special screening of Red Notice in theaters, Johnson and his crew surprised fans with a personal appearance at the Cinemark movie theater just outside of Los Angeles.
However, Johnson wasn't just there to give away smiles, hugs, autographs, and free ice cream bars to fans. He also signed out a Navy veteran going by the name of Scar Rodriguez as a recipient of something truly special.
He deserves a lot more than my personal truck.
Kindness matters to me, so thanks @ORodri240 for being so kind to so many people.
You said it right, just before you drove away ~ it’s just love.
That’s all it is, brother.
Enjoy your new truck dude 🛻👊🏾

The video, which Johnson posted on his Instagram and Twitter accounts just recently, has already amassed millions of views.
According to Johnson, he wanted to give away the same car that he drives in Red Notice. However, Porsche turned his idea down. So, Johnson decided to give away his truck instead. Johnson didn't just pick the recipient at random either. He gathered as much information as he could about the invited audiences before ultimately choosing Rodriguez because of his life's story.
In addition to serving in the Navy, Rodriguez is also a personal trainer, a church leader, and provides support for his 75-year-old mom, as well as preparing meals for domestic violence survivors.
Given how genuinely happy everyone else appears to be for Johnson and Rodriguez, the choice is a no-brainer at this point. The heartwarming video is also very inspiring. Johnson refers to his act of giving as "just love" before joking about how he's going to get home now that he no longer has his truck. In case you're wondering, this is the same truck that Johnson rolled around in when he surprised tourists a few months ago.
