He sold toys. At fairs. Holy crap, this is too good.
Many people know Vin Diesel solely from his work as Dominic Toretto from “The Fast and the Furious” franchise. Of course Diesel was active before that series kicked off in 2001, starring in films such as “Saving Private Ryan” and “Boiler Room.” But before all that he was selling toys at fairs. Wait, what? Yes, the time is 1994 and Diesel is doing his best to sell Street Sharks action figures. He is instantly recognizable and his performance is incredibly energetic given the subject matter.
That enthusiasm, along with his leather vest, is what makes this video so damn cringeworthy. Just check it out for yourself. We apologize in advance if Toretto is forever ruined in your eyes by this clip.
