In case you haven't heard, Dwayne Johnson is the nicest guy in Hollywood.

In his latest act of awesomeness, The Rock surprised his stunt double and cousin Tanoai Reed with a brand new truck, just to say thanks!

He wrote on Instagram: "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 has broken multiple bones, severed tendons, torn ligaments & just been an overall dominating bad a** achieving several 'Stuntman of the Year' honours".

He added: "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."

The clip starts with Dwayne pretending to give an interview about the duo working together for many years.

"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," Dwayne added.

As soon as the Jumanji actor says "Enjoy your new truck," Reed's reaction is gold. The two then have a big hug and the stuntman says: "I love you man."

"Seventeen years of his blood and his sweat, this is a small token of my appreciation," Dwayne added.

Now THAT's a friend!
