See The Hilarious And Biblical Reason Vin Diesel Is Trending

Vin Diesel was trending on Twitter because the Alamo Drafthouse likened his image to what Adam, from the Bible, might have looked like

Ever wonder what Adam, he of Adam and Eve from Genesis fame, might have looked like back in the day? Well, according to one internet source, it is a lot like Vin Diesel. At least that’s what Alamo Drafthouse NYC posited on Twitter with the movie house making the claim that scientists at Princeton University put together a 3D model of what Adam could have looked like. It would seem this rendering had a lot of (if not all) similarities with the Fast & Furious star.

Of course, Alamo Drafthouse NYC was quick to follow up their post with a reminder that they were, in fact, a movie theater, and not actually a definitive source for scientific knowledge like this. But it didn’t stop the internet hordes from grabbing on to this visual and running with it.

After all, Vin Diesel does certainly seem to look the part when it comes to thinking about early humans. Or at worst, some folks would have to do double takes when first looking at this image. At the time of this writing, the original tweet had more than 306K likes and 28K retweets. That’s viral, to say the least.

This is all in good fun and there isn’t anyone actually suggesting that Vin Diesel, is in fact, a spitting image of the guy who landed in the Garden of Eden with Eve. Plenty of folks also rang in with their own follow-ups to the original tweet which put a Fast & Furious spin on the Bible as well. There was a post that had Michelle Rodriguez as a possible look-a-like for Eve.

Another post said “And on the sixth day, God created a 1970 Dodge Charger…”, a reference to Vin Diesel-as-Dom Toretto’s muscle car of choice in the Fast & Furious movies. There were more as well, and this joke really landed in all of the right ways.

Of course, Vin Diesel will be wrapping his run in the aforementioned Fast & Furious franchise with Fast X. The tenth movie completed its principal filming last summer even after original director Justin Lin had left the production. He was replaced by Louis Leterrier. 

In addition to Vin Diesel, Fast X will also see a bunch of franchise mainstays back in the mix for what will be the final movie with the original group of car aficionados. Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, and Chris “Ludacris” Bridges are all along for the ride. 

Jason Statham, Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren, and John Cena are also reprising roles from previous movies. Plus, franchise newcomers Brie Larson and Jason Momoa are joining Vin Diesel in Fast X for the final film.

Vin Diesel and company will be wrapping up this portion of the Fast & Furious franchise sooner than later. Fast X is due out in theaters on May 19, 2023. Maybe after that, he can get a Bible movie going. According to this latest tweet, he certainly looks the part.
