Paul Walker pretending to be Vin Diesel in resurfaced clip is leaving fans heartbroken

A resurfaced clip of Paul Walker pretending to be Vin Diesel has resurfaced thanks to a post on X.

Paul Walker pretending to be his pal Vin Diesel in a resurfaced clip has left much of the internet heartbroken.

The Fast and Furious actor tragically died in November 2013 at the age of 40 following a car crash - alongside professional driver Roger Rodas - who was driving his red 2005 Porsche Carrera GT.

The pair were driving to Santa Clarita for a charity event when the vehicle unexpectedly collided with a concrete lamppost and two trees.

The LA County Sheriff confirmed shortly after the crash that both men had been killed during the incident.

According to a coroner's report, Walker died due to the combined effects of traumatic and thermal injuries, while Rodas suffered several traumatic injuries.

After a four-month investigation, Rodas was found to have been driving at speeds of 80 to 93mph before losing control of the car, with The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Commander, Mike Parker, concluding that the cause of the collison had been 'unsafe speed for the roadway conditions'.

Walker's castmates, along with fans of the franchise, were quick to mourn the actor's passing - with fellow co-star Vin Diesel sharing his own emotional tribute to him.

The pair had struck up a close friendship while on-set and some resurfaced footage on X (formerly Twitter) showed that Walker wasn't afraid to joke around with him.

The footage shows the crew during some down time on the set of Fast and Furious when Walker and Tyrese Gibson decide to have some fun.

Gibson could be seen approaching Walker thinking he's Diesel to tell him that 'everyone is looking for him' before realizing it's not him.

After Gibson asked him 'what are you doing', Walker simply replies: "I'm Vin Diesel."

Gibson then joked that if the actual Vin Diesel saw Walker mimicking him then the he would 'flip'.

Nonetheless, the star proceeded to take off his jacket to reveal his fake six-pack and bald cap before he began flexing and repeatedly shouting: "It's Diesel time!"

Since Walker is no longer with us, the clip has left many fans on social media pretty emotional.

One quoted the song 'See You Again' by Wiz Khalifa for the franchise, writing: "It's been a long day without you my friend and I'll tell you all about it when I see you again."

Another said: "Rest in peace man.."

Someone else said they wished 'he was still with us', while another commenter called him a 'legend'.

A fourth said: "i’m not crying you are."

And a fifth wrote: "Missing him already."
