During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson went above and beyond to give a military couple a memorable surprise.
“If we ever have the opportunity to give back to our troops I think we all should,” Johnson said during his interview with Fallon. “We live and enjoy the life we have because of them.”
Before he finished, Johnson said there was one thing he wanted to do to give back to a military family in the studio. He then led Fallon through the audience and up into the show’s control room.
There, he surprised a show staffer, Karina, who is an Army veteran. Shocked, she thought the meeting with Jonhson was the surprise, but he had something else in store for her. Here’s the video which has been viewed more than 16 million times.
Fallon was visibly emotional during the touching encounter. He tweeted about the suprise after the show.
I can't believe we pulled that off. I lost it. #FallonTonight

Johnson has done a lot over the years to give back to veterans and service men and women. He most recently hosted Rock the Troops, a holiday special for more than 45,000 members of the armed forces.
