Watch The Rock Gift A Veteran His Ford F-150 Raptor

Video / Comments

Warning: your eyes might begin to sweat.

It's not every day one gets to personally meet Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. But it's a far rarer occasion when the Hollywood blockbuster star and former professional wrestler personally gifts you his own and customized Ford F-150 Raptor. That's exactly what happened to Navy veteran Oscar Rodriguez. The Rock posted the special moment on his Instagram while attending a Thanksgiving Day screening of his latest movie, "Burn Notice," in Los Angeles.

Everyone who attended received special treatment courtesy of The Rock, like food and the chance to meet him in person. But it was Rodriguez's story and how he chooses to live his life that really touched the action star.

Not only is Rodriguez a military veteran, but he also volunteers at his church, helps prepare warm meals for women domestic abuse survivors, takes care of his elderly mother, and that's all on top of his job as a personal trainer. The guy deserves something special.

"Just an honor for me to give a little bit of joy to a dude who deserves probably a lot more than just my truck," Johnson said. Needless to say, Rodriguez was in absolute shock when The Rock handed him the keys to "his baby." "I thought this was your truck, bro," Rodriguez said. The Rock's reply: "It is my truck. Now, it's your truck." That's true class right there, folks.

Even Ford CEO Jim Farley was touched, posting on Twitter "Kindness matters. Nice work, DJ @TheRock. And thank you for your service, @ORodri240. That's a great truck! #F150Raptor." Also interesting to point out is that The Rock claims he initially wanted to give away a Porsche Taycan, the car he drives in the movie, during the preview event but the automaker turned down his request.

He planned from the get-go to give away a vehicle to a fan attending the screening. Ultimately, it was Oscar's story that touched him the most.
