Before They Were Stars: Watch Vin Diesel in 1994 Video Promoting Line of Toy Sharks
Celebrity| | By Jason Owen
Before he was a worldwide megastar, Vin Diesel was making his way in Hollywood promoting children’s toys. Don’t believe us? Well, there’s proof.
On Wednesday, video surfaced of a (still buff) Diesel with hair and sporting a black leather vest promoting a line of toys for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoff, a cartoon series called, Street Sharks.
Watch the video here of a very excited Diesel discussing the group of crime-fighting sharks.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by user tvdays, and titled, “Lost Toy Fair Performance with Vin Diesel 1994.”
It would be just four years later when Diesel would get his big break in Steven Spielberg’s World War II epic, Saving Private Ryan, and from there it’s safe to say, Diesel’s career went fast and furious to superstardom.
So take heart, (almost) everybody has to start from the bottom.
