"I don't got friends. I got family."
Ever imagined what Fast and Furious would look like, depicted in India? Well imagine no more!
A video creating a funny Indian spoof of the film franchise has taken the internet by storm.
Released on 13th April 2017, “Full Fast Full Furious” currently holds 2.8 million views.
By capturing both the essence of film trailers and the Fast and Furious franchise, no wonder it’s gathered such momentum on social media.
The spoof features two drivers, attempting to rule the Indian roads. It begins as both of them sit in their cars, ready for a race. Staring intently at each other, they flash their cash and wait for a woman to finish sweeping the road and kick off the race.
However, instead of driving in the ultra-cool sportscars of the original films, the men drive in auto rickshaws and a Maruti 800.
With one of them even sporting a bald head cap, looking suspiciously like Vin Diesel, it hails as a very funny spoof.
The video continues to show the duo attempting antics, but with an Indian twist. As the narrator explains: “This summer, take a ride with two Indian drivers as they take on … random cows.”
The trailer then shows a cow blocking the drivers’ path.
However, their plans don’t appear to work out well. As they attempt to move the cow off the road, they embarrassingly have to admit their defeat.

The spoof also features lines that grace pretty much every trailer of the franchise. In a scene where the men get pulled over by an Indian cop, the policeman asks: “Who’s that? Your friend eh?”
In true fashion, the spoof’s Vin Diesel replies: “I don’t got friends. I got family.”
It also mocks the franchise’s insistence on having “one last ride.”As “Vin Diesel” utters the famous line, his friend becomes weary and says: “Ay, what one last ride? How many times one last ride?”
Many have flocked to the comments section of the video to voice their love and support of the video. A viewer named Sridevi said: “Super hilarious.. me and my kids have watched it 10 times since morning!!”
With the huge furore surrounding the video, perhaps it’s high time the real Vin Diesel and his “family” locate their next film in India?
