As a surprise on Krasinski's holiday-themed segment, Dwayne Johnson entered their chat in a head-to-toe Santa Claus suit with a hat, which read 'Dwanta.' He surprised everyone by announcing he would be handling Abel's kids' Christmas lists.
Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson just got a new set of fans as the amazing celebrity proved to be a true hero by taking care of a widowed father-of-two's Christmas gifts for his children on Sunday. The 48-year-old retired wrestler and actor connected with Jay Abel, during a virtual appearance on John Krasinski's Youtube series, Some Good News.
After Krasinksi learned that Abel was turning to eBay to sell some of his most beloved possessions to provide for his daughter Elisa, eight, and son AJ, 11, the Office favorite stepped in. The young father told Krasinski that he was not able to find a job due to the lockdown that was implemented in the pandemic earlier this year.
"Your story is my favorite of the holiday season," Krasinski said. He later revealed to his viewers how he attempted to purchase all of Abel's items off of eBay.
However, upon viewing Krasinski's newly-created accounts bidding on all his comic book memorabilia, Abel admitted to thinking the usernames were fraudulent.
In a written exchange between Krasinski and Abel, the single dad said he didn't 'feel comfortable with the sales' and passed on Krasinski's attempted purchases.
"Hope you understand and good luck in the future," he told the star.

"Here's what I want you to do. Take all of your stuff off of eBay because Dwanta Claus is going to take care of all of that stuff, man," the actor said.
"You deserve it all, man. Your story is an inspiration. You are an inspiration," Johnson added.
He and Krasinski also made a $5 million donation to Toys for Tots in Abel's name.
"You are what the holidays are all about. 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," the retired wrestler said.
