Actor and filmmaker John Krasinski is back with the Christmas special of the new Youtube show, Some Good News. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, he has been hosting his new show and inviting a bunch of celebrities to surprise fans from around the world. This time, Dwayne Johnson appeared as Santa Claus and George Clooney as the weatherman.
To take a break from the news, Krasinski invited George Clooney to give the weather update. Clooney looks up to analyze the weather in the video and quips, “Looks good. Looks pretty good.”
For his final segment called Parents That Rock, Krasinski invited a widowed father of two, Jay Abel, who was selling his collection of comic book merch in order to afford Christmas presents for his kids. “I think your story is my favorite story this holiday season. It is just like super dad stuff,” Krasinski said.
Much to Abel’s surprise, Dwayne Johnson spoke to him and offered to help and asked him to take the stuff off of eBay. “I thought Dwanta Clause can do better than a retweet,” he told Abel. “I want you to take all of your stuff off of eBay, because Dwanta Clause is going to take care of all of that stuff, man.”
As Dwayne Johnson will start the shoot of Black Adam next year, he said, “We’ll show you around, give you a whole bunch of cool DC swag. Because I know that you are a big collector of comic book memorabilia, I got a little something special cooking up for you. Your story is an inspiration. You are an inspiration. Not only to myself, to Dwanta Clause, but certainly to John, certainly to everybody who hears your story. You represent so many parents around the world who are going through the struggle this Christmas.”
