Vin Diesel Excitedly Pitches Shark Toys in This Unearthed 1994 Video

You already knew that Fast & Furious actor Vin Diesel was a graceful dancer, but did you know he's also a skilled pitch-man for toy sharks? Well, now you do. In this 1994 video that recently surfaced online (via Kotaku), Dom Toretto himself is sporting a leather vest and making a hard sell for Street Sharks, those cool toys that looked like roided-out Ninja Turtles. 

In the clip, a very pumped Diesel makes some great puns ("Fin-tastic!"), demonstrates the Street Sharks' amazing fighting abilities, and generally charms the hell out of you. I smell a gritty Street Sharks reboot coming soon. Maybe Groot can be involved.
