We're just gonna admit it. We're absolute suckers for videos of kids meeting their idols which is why the Late Late Toy Show is one of our favourite events of the year. This latest effort, however, is right up there among our favourites.

The clip features nine-year-old PJ from Kildare who suffers from Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. PJ has always wanted to meet his idol Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and, thanks to Make-A-Wish Ireland, his dream came true.

Along with some other kids, PJ got to spend a day with the former WWE star on the set of his upcoming movie Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. Not only did PJ get to hang out with one of the biggest movie stars in the world, he was also showered with gifts, even bagging himself an X-Box to take home to Ireland.

Not a bad trip at all. Just look at his little face...

The clip was retweeted by The Rock himself who seemed to have as much fun as PJ did...

Fair play to all involved. It turns out that all this time, the smell The Rock was cooking up was a simple splash of human decency. Who knew?
