The biggest guy in Hollywood has proven, once again, that he's got a heart to match. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is no stranger to a kind surprise or grand gesture, often filming the recipients of his gifts and sharing the footage with his Instagram followers.
His latest effort in his bid to transform into "Dwanta Claus" sees him partnering with Microsoft and Xbox. The star announced that he first got involved with the gaming console after Bill Gates included him in its initial launch 20 years ago.
This year, The Rock collaborated with Xbox on the latest edition of the gaming system, the Series X for a special version called THE ROCK XBOX Series X. Johnson's video showed the new console off but also revealed that they would be installed not in stores but in children's hospitals across America.
The entertainer went on to say that the console was specifically intended to make 50 000 children going through chronic illnesses have a slightly easier time as they spend the holiday season in hospital.
The Rock explained to his 200 million followers that he was launching the brand new Series X to the world, but that the special editions were for the kids who "show me and the world what real strength means".
