In a new video posted on his Facebook page, Diesel not only belts out stirring renditions of two current pop smashes: Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” and Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “Drunk in Love,” but displays some dance moves that are ready for the club (or your cousin’s Bar Mitzvah), proving that he is not only a true fan, but a pure Polymath … look it up.
And, like all great karaoke artists, Vin doesn’t let a little thing like “not knowing the lyrics” stand in the way of his performance. In fact, he makes it abundantly clear that he made the video for perhaps the purest reason on the planet: because he’s happy.
“Guys I’m just excited, I’m happy, and I’m shouting out to you guys to say thank you; Universal just called me and told me that ‘Riddick’ is number one on the DVD charts,” he tells the camera at one point. “There’s no way in the world ‘Riddick’ would have been made without you guys … it’s a win for all of us and, really, thank you so much.”
He also briefly weighs in on Bey and Jay’s eye-popping, ass-grabbing Grammy performance of “Drunk in Love,” though he let it be known that he didn’t get to witness it in person, since he was busy with “all the work that goes into getting ready to finish ‘Fast and Furious 7.’” And then he just keeps right on dancing.
Needless to say, the video is amazing, and not just because it gives us another reason to post his stirring Valentine’s Day rendition of Rihanna’s “Stay,” either.
Never change, Vin. Never grow old.
