If you have 20 minutes to spare (and don't mind getting emotional), then you must watch this.
Vin Diesel hinted that he has something special planned for his 60 million Facebook fans that have helped him cope with the loss of his best friend Paul Walker. "You have always been so supportive, especially in these past two months… So, I wanted to share something personal that I worked on through the New Year, in honor of my brother Pablo… Paul," Diesel wrote on Facebook yesterday.
Sure enough, the Fast and Furious star posted an epic 18 and a half minutes worth of footage on the social media website, full of his interactions with Walker over the years. Diesel captioned the "Vinbook" clip, "A glimpse... of Dom and Brian… off screen."
The video features multiple clips from Walker and Diesel's time together, whether it be promoting a film from their car-racing franchise or just hanging out. At the end, the words, "Miss you..." flash across the screen.
"When I heard, I immediately flew back to California, and went directly from the plane to his mother's house...," Diesel wrote on Facebook shortly after the tragedy occurred. "I thought they needed my strength, but realized when I got there and broke down before his family, that it was I who needed theirs."
He continued, "His mother hugged me and said I am so sorry... I said sorry? You're the mother who lost a son?... She said yes, but you lost your other half..."
Diesel also attended a private memorial service for Walker in Santa Clarita, Calif., and made an impromptu speech in Valencia using a sheriff's car's microphone.
Calling the 40-year-old star his "brother," Vin thanked attendees for their support in light of the celeb's passing. "At this hard time his family gets to see all of you show the love that you've shown Paul. It's going to stay with me forever," Diesel said. "I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciate him."
