Vin Diesel thanks his 63 million Facebook fans by dancing to Beyonce and Katy Perry for what feels like an eternity. A delightful eternity.

In case you didn't know, it's Vin Diesel's Facebook, we're all just visiting.
The Fast & Furious star's Facebook page presently has over 63 million likes, prompting him to joke last year that "Facebook really owes me billions of dollars." The huge fanbase has nicknamed their community "Vinbook," festooning his page with glittery, photoshopped images in tribute to the star. He's used his Facebook presence to propel his career in directions he wanted it to go, and today he's thanking his Facebook fans for the success of the Riddick DVD by dancing to Beyonce and Katy Perry for seven minutes of sheer, giddy discomfort.
"Dancing" isn't quite the right word. "Alone guy swaying awkwardly to try not to look bored at the party" might work better. The seven-and-a-half minute video starts with Vin jamming to "Dark Horse" by Katy Perry, followed by a thank you message to fans, followed by the big show-stopper, "Drunk In Love" by Beyonce, during which he presents several different choreographed intepretations of that "Surfbort" refrain (the surfing start at around 6:40).
If this is the kind of gift you get for being a Vin fan, I'm in!
