Dwayne Johnson Shocks His Stunt Double with a Brand New Custom Pickup Truck

 

 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has done it again! This time he has surprised his stunt double by buying him a brand new custom pickup truck.

The Rock has been promoting his recent film Skyscraper and is currently working on a bunch of new films such as Fighting with My Family and Jungle Cruise.

Dwayne took some time recently from his busy schedule to go out of his way to buy his stunt double a new truck. If you haven’t heard, his stunt double’s name is Tanoai Reed and they are actually cousins!

Johnson took to Instagram and said “SURPRISE! I love handing over keys. I love you brother and enjoy your new truck!”. The video initially started as “behind the scenes” clip related to the movie, then it eventually shows the new truck with a nice red bow on it.

SURPRISE! I love handing over keys🔑🎁 I love you brother and enjoy your new truck! Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several “Stuntman of the Year” honors. All done with one goal in mind – deliver the best movie possible to the world. I had this custom pick up truck delivered just in time to surprise him (he’s still recovering from a stunt injury) while we give what he thought was going to be an interview about our careers together. As you’ll see the moment I put my hands on my hips, that’s the drivers cue to pull away and reveal the big surprise. Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business. Love you uso and thank you for the blood, sweat, tears and years. We’re just getting started. Enjoy your new truck! #LetsRoll 🤟🏾

The video ends with the pair sharing a genuine hug and Dwayne states:

“Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed @samoanstuntman has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad a*s achieving several ‘Stuntman of the Year’ honours,” he wrote. “Not only does Tanoai represent our family and my career with relentless commitment and passion. He also represents an entire Hollywood stunt community that is truly the backbone of our business.”

Tanoai has been Dwayne Johnson’s stunt double on many films including but not limited to San Andreas, Furious 7, Hercules, and Rampage.
