By now you'd think that we'd had enough of The Rock and his overwhelming positivity and generosity.

Yet here we are again and once again he has us choked.

Rocky, better known as Dwayne Johnson, recently decided to thank his long-term stuntman and cousin Tanoai Reed who is currently spending time out after suffering an injury.

The two, who are practically spitting images of one another, have been working together since 2002 on one of Johnson's earliest films, The Scorpion King.

In a video that Johnson shared on social media, he surprises Reed by first thanking him for all his hard work and then revealing his gift, a brand new truck.

Aww...bless him. Those are happy tears right there.

In the caption Johnson writes:

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. 

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 driver's 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.

Reed then followed this up by sharing pictures of him and Johnson posing by the truck on his own Instagram account.

This isn't the first time that The Rock has given one of his loved ones a car as a gift.

He has surprised his mother with a brand new Cadillac.

He brought his dad a Cadillac Escalade in March, following hip surgery.

He even spoke about his habit of buying new cars for his family during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live in April this year.
