Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson bought every Snickers bar from the Hawaii 7-Eleven he frequented as a 14-year-old.

“I have been waiting decades to do what I’m getting ready to do now,” he said in an Instagram video.

“When I was 14 years old, every day I used to stop here at this 7-Eleven and steal a king size Snickers Bar because I couldn’t afford to buy one,” Johnson said. “That was my pre-workout food. I did that for almost a year every day. I had to come back and buy every Snickers bar on those shelves.”

“Ring all these up,” he told the cashier.

Johnson wrote in the post that the clerk would turn her head every day and never busted him. (RELATED: Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Says A Run For President Is ‘Off The Table’)

After Johnson bought the Snickers bars, he gave them to other customers, and paid for their groceries. He told the cashier to place them in a bag next to a register and give anyone who looks like he’s going to steal a Snickers Bar from that stock.

“After decades of me wanting to come back home to 7-11 and try to make good, that felt really, really good,” he said.

Johnson said that while we “can’t change the past and the dumb stuff we may have done, we can add a little redeeming grace note to that situation” and make a stranger smile.
