Dwayne Johnson Plays Santa To Deserving Dad During John Krasinski's 'Some Good News' Holiday Special

Dwayne Johnson is feeling festive in his Santa suit during a special appearance on John Krasinski‘s ‘Some Good News’ Holiday Special.

The Black Adam actor popped in on the program to surprise a deserving dad on the program.

John had invited Jay Abel, a single dad of two who lost his wife several years ago and was selling his comic book merchandise on eBay to pay for his kids’ Christmas gifts.

He revealed to Jay that he had tried to purchase it all of it, but Jay blocked him from doing so because he thought it was a scam.

Dwayne, or “Dwanta Claus” popped in to deliver a special present to Jay.

“I want you to take all of your stuff off of eBay because Dwanta Claus is going to take care of all of that stuff, man!” he told him.

Dwayne also offered to fly Jay and his kids out to Southern California after the pandemic was over to visit the set of Black Adam when it was safe, and he is also going to bind and sign his copy of the film’s script and send it to Jay as his personal gift to him.

“You represent so many parents around the world who are going through the struggle this Christmas,” Dwayne shared with the dad.. “That is why my good buddy, John, and I called some of our elf friends to see if they’re able to help some other families all around the world.”

“You are what the holidays are all about,” he continued. “You embody the spirit. And I feel very confident I can speak for my friend John here in that, you know, the true measure of a man and true measure of a human being truly is always what’s in their heart. Always what’s deep down in their heart, and their mana.”

Dwayne and John also teamed up to donate around $5 million to Toys for Tots so that more deserving children get gifts this holiday season.
