Vin Diesel used to hawk toys prior fame

Washington D.C, Jan. 28 (ANI): Guess where did Vin Diesel show his acting skills before ‘The Fast and The Furious’ and karaoke cover of Rihanna’s ‘Stay.’

In a recently unearthed 1994 clip of the ‘Furious 7’ star, he is seen enthusiastically hawking toys at New York City’s Toy Fair, an annual trade show held every February, reports Us Magazine.

“We’re looking at Boomer. This is Boomer. He’s got the biggest mouth of them all,” a young Diesel says in the clip, clad in nothing but a leather vest and pants. “Say hello to that round mound of pound.”

The 48-year-old actor goes on to introduce a few other Street Sharks characters, including ‘Sledge the Hammerhead,’ who “loves to floor the competition with a flying head-butt.”

Street Sharks was a syndicated cartoon that ran for three seasons and 40 episodes back in the mid-’90s, gaining a large following and a line of popular toys to boot. (ANI)
