Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gave his own pickup truck to Navy veteran Oscar Rodriguez and shared video of the touching moment online.

The heartwarming scene has amassed millions of views.

“I invited fans to a special theater screening of RED NOTICE and I wanted to do something cool for all of them,” Johnson explained on social media. “Free concessions, @projectrock, @teremana, @zoaenergy, @saltandstraw ice cream. Free everything and a great time at the movies!”

“I also wanted to do something BIG… something MASSIVE… something unforgettable for one fan,” he noted. “My original idea was to give away the Porsche Taycan, that I drive in the movie, Red Notice. So we reached out to Porsche, but they said no.”

Johnson said that he decided that he would give away his own truck instead.

“I gathered as much information as I could about everyone in the audience and ultimately, Oscar’s story moved me,” the actor noted. “Takes care of his 75 year old mom. Personal trainer. Leader at his church. Provides support and meals for women victimized by domestic violence. Proud & humble Navy veteran. Kind human being.”

In the video, Rodriguez, who had been excited just to meet Johnson, became very emotional after learning that Johnson was giving him the vehicle.

“Hugging @therock is worth a thousand trucks!” Rodriguez said in an Instagram post. “I could have gone home content and satisfied knowing I got a BEAR HUG from Dwayne Johnson, A Living Legend. Cheers to you brother. I pray for more hugs, @teremana toasts in our future!”
