I am, to date, yet to have an employer decide to reward my incredible work by gifting me an entire car (management, if you’re reading this: it’s not too late). I imagine, though, if that did happen, I would be reduced to tears like a giant, disconcertingly hairy baby.

My hypothesis for this is based on the reaction that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson‘s stunt double had when Johnson decide to say ‘cheers, mate’ by giving him a big old fuck-off custom ute (or ‘pick-up’, our American cousins would say). Pretending that they were filming an interview together, Johnson thanked his cousin (really) and stunt double Tanoai Reed for 17 years of basically just having the shit beaten out of him as Johnson’s double:

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!

This shit is adorable:

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 ????????

Imagine having to constantly make sure your body was exactly as jacked as the Rock’s, probably worth a free car or two I reckon.
