Justin Timberlake has surprised a deserving fan with the sweetest gift.

17-year-old Jake Stitt, who has cerebral palsy, has become a local celebrity in his hometown of Morristown, Tennessee – known for sitting outside in his wheelchair with a sign that reads: “Honk if you’re happy.”

Actor Michael Abbott Jr. started a fundraising campaign for the inspiring teen, so that he could get a new wheelchair-accessible van.

After hearing about the campaign and Jake’s story, 39-year-old Justin surprised him with a video call, giving him some amazing news.

“I heard that there was a promise, or a goal, to try to get this van before Thanksgiving and I heard your story and I saw a little news clip about it,” the father-of-one said.

“I was so moved that I want you guys to have this van. I’m going to cover all the costs. I want you to have a great holiday.

“You inspire me, Jake,” Justin added, encouraging him to “keep on honking”.
