Watch Vin Diesel Spend 7-Minutes Dancing to Beyoncé
By Shannon Carlin
When you hear that there’s a video of Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel dancing along to Katy Perry and Beyoncé on the Internet, it would be safe to assume that it wasn’t by his choosing. But alas, Diesel willingly released the homemade dance video today (Jan. 27) as a special thank you to his fans.
In the over 7-minute long clip, seemingly filmed in Diesel’s home office, he pumps his fist to Katy’s “Dark Horse,” showing off his lean during Juicy J’s verse and later on his tongue à la Miley Cyrus.
So what led Diesel to perform this happy dance? His movie, Riddick hit No. 1 on the DVD charts.
“It’s a win for all of us. Really really want to thank you so much…” he said thanking fans for their support, before adding. “Of course Universal said they want to develop the next one.”
So with news of another Vin Diesel flick on the way, he decided to treat fans to a freestyle to Bey’s “Drunk In Love.”
Starting at the 4 minute and 48 second mark, Diesel swivels his hips, snaps and stutter-steps in time with Bey’s latest track. And shows off his very unique version of what he believes Bey’s talking about when she talks about “riding it with her surfboard.” Unfortunately, it’s not nearly as sexy as her GRAMMY performance.
But don’t feel too bad for Vin, the video currently has nearly 525,000.
Last year, Diesel showed off his vocal chops, singing along with Rihanna’s “Stay.” Switching between the lower and higher register, Diesel made the virtual duet as a Valentine’s Day treat for fans.
