Watch The Rock and Xbox do something nice in this garbage fire world

The world seems like a pretty bleak place at the moment, so you owe it to yourself to take a self-care break and watch these videos of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson surprising children in the name of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I'm not crying, you're crying. 

Johnson partnered up with Xbox to bring Murat, Emily and Maria a special Xbox One X (before its official release on November 7) customized with a holiday message and Johnson's Brahma bull logo. He surprised them on the set of his new movie, Skyscraper, where his special guests also got personalized director chairs, a private tour of the set and exotic car rides. 

"16 years ago, Dwayne Johnson was on-stage with Bill Gates to help announce the original Xbox. We’re excited to be working with Dwayne again to show there is no power greater than X," says Aaron Greenberg, GM of Games Marketing at Xbox.

Between Official PlayStation Magazine, GamesIndustry.biz and Rolling Stone I've picked up a wide range of experience, from how to handle the madness of E3 to making easy conversation with CEOs and executives of game companies over seafood buffets. At GamesRadar+ I'm proud of the impact I've had on the way we write news, and now - as managing editor in the US - the huge traffic successes we're seeing. Most of all I'm proud of my team, who have continued to kick ass through the uncertainty of 2020 and into 2021, and are what makes GamesRadar+ so special.
