A fan showing up to watch the latest movie by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson had the shock of a lifetime—first by meeting the star himself, and then when the wrestler turned actor handed over the keys to his personal truck.
Johnson knew he would be treating the movie-goers to a meet and greet as well as free popcorn and ice cream at concession stands, but he also did a bit of research into those in attendance, and it was Rodriquez’s big heart that caught his eye.
“Oscar Rodriguez’s story moved me” Johnson wrote on his Instagram, explaining the gift, which was enough to make Rodriquez break down and cry.
A Navy veteran, personal trainer, and sole caretaker of his 75-year old mother, Rodriquez is also a leader of a local church group, and runs a charity to help victims of domestic violence.
After calling Rodriquez down from the seats in the theater to introduce him and share his story, he led the man out to the parking lot and handed him a card that said, “Thank you for your service brother, enjoy your new truck.”
