Dwayne The Rock Johnson is an Ambassador at Ford, and recently he decided to partake in giving away the Ford ‘Go Further’ award. The winner, Marlene is a combat veteran who put in three tours and has a Purple Heart to show for it. She also is a huge fan of The Rock and was not expecting to meet him. Before Dwayne Johnson appeared and lifted Marlene’s spirit, she was giving a heartfelt answer to how she felt about how her combat tours.
“I heard I wasn’t the only one with the badass tattoos” was the first thing he said when he saw Marlene.
Johnson awarded Marlene with tickets to his new upcoming Baywatch film, which she thought was going to be her only gift, then The Rock hit her with a brand new 2018 Ford Mustang. At that point she was in complete shock and said, “Why?” and “I don’t deserve all of this.” The People’s Champ responded with, “You deserve more.”

This one felt good. Very good. ?? Our @Ford partners asked me to unveil the never seen before, brand new 2018 FORD MUSTANG to the world. As their Ambassador, I'm happy to do. With a twist. Myself and Ford compiled a big list of US veterans and from that list, I chose Army combat vet & Purple Heart recipient, Marlene Rodriguez to surprise and give it away to her. It was such a cool moment that all of us in the room will never forget. When Marlene, stopped and just looked at me and asked "Why?", well that's when I may or may not have gotten a lil' emotional with my answer – in a bad ass manly way of course. Why? Because of the boundless gratitude and respect I have for you, Marlene and all our men and women who've served our country. Just a small way of myself and the good people of FORD of saying THANK YOU. A HUGE thank you to FORD, our SEVEN BUCKS PRODUCTIONS and everyone who was involved in making this awesome surprise come true. Finally, thank you FORD for making the new 2018 Mustang straight ?, completely customizable for the world to enjoy. Thanks also for making sure I fit in it as well. Marlene, fits better. ?. Enjoy your ride mama. Enjoy that Dodger game. You deserve it. #2018FordMustang #FordAmbassador #HeFinallyFitsInASportsCar #ButSheFitsBetter #SheCanHaveIt #StoryOfMyLife * Click the link in my bio to watch this very cool FULL VIDEO.
The Rock seems to be in an uplifting spirit because last week he gave some hope to DC fans when he was at the DC headquarters.

Had a very cool and strategic meeting with the heads of DC about their entire universe. As a hard core DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up. Something we, as DC fans have all been waiting for for a very long time. Hope, optimism & FUN. Even when talking about the the most ruthless villain/anti-hero of all time finally coming to life. Prepare yourselves DC Universe. #KneelAtHisFeet #OrGetCrushedByHisBoot #BlackAdam⚡️
It looks like we may be inching closer to seeing Johnson hit the screen as Black Adam. He wrote, “As a hardcore DC fan, to get a real sense of the tonal shifts and developments coming in these future movies has me fired up.”
