The Rock Surprising His Stunt Double Cousin With a New Car is Too Good for This World
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, also known as “Dwanta Claus,” recently surprised his stunt double and cousin Tanoai Reed with a brand new truck after returning from an injury on set.
The plan was to make Reed believe that he and Johnson were shooting a behind-the-scenes interview to talk about their careers together in the movie industry, according to Mashable.
A car moved up behind them which turned out to be a gift for Johnson’s longtime stunt double.
That’s when Johnson finally reveals the surprise to Reed.
“Over the course of my career, my stunt double (and cousin) Tanoai Reed has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad ass achieving several ‘Stuntman of the Year’ honors,” Johnson said in his post. “All done with one goal in mind – deliver the best movie possible to the world.”
“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.”
“I’m still in complete shock from the surprise and so very humbled by his gesture of gratitude,” Reed said in an Instagram post.
