Why is Vin Diesel Dancing to Katy Perry and Beyoncé? (Update: Katy Perry Reacts!)

Update (6:32 p.m. EST):

Katy Perry got wind of Vin Diesel’s interpretation to her music and had just three little words to tell the world: “YES VIN DIESEL.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves, Katy!

Original story (3:05 p.m. EST):

When Vin Diesel isn’t driving fast cars, saving beautiful women, and being an all-around action star, he dances. And he dances to the Top 40 hits of two of music’s biggest divas.

In the seven-minute video that nearly broke the internet earlier today, Vin gets his groove thing on and guess what? His playlist includes both Katy Perry and Beyoncé. Who knew we’d have so much in common with Dominic Toretto!

During the truly epic one-man show, Vin introduces us to a variety of new dance moves. There’s the closeup head bob at second 31, the behind the back snap attack at 1:21, and the upside-down Spiderman kiss at 1:42. He even goes all Miley Cyrus with a full-on tongue airing. And that’s all just two minutes in!

Vin shared the video via his Facebook with the teasing caption “You know I love music…” Um, yeah but we had no idea how much!

About halfway through, the 46-year-old takes a break from the jam fest to tell his fans what inspired the recent dance party.

“Guys, I’m just excited. I’m happy,” he tells the camera. “I’m shouting out to you guys to thank you. Universal just called me and told me that Riddick is number one on the DVD charts. There’s no way in the world Riddick would have been made without you guys.”

Vin, if you promise to dance after every major career milestone, consider The Pacifier sold out.
