Fast X's Latest Trailer Becomes One Big Laughingstock

Solemn intonations about the sacredness of family notwithstanding, the "Fast and Furious" franchise (and its surprisingly complicated timeline) has always been a pretty lighthearted affair. But, of course, it pretty much has to be, with its absurd, over-the-top approach to narrative and spectacle, and it's always been hard to imagine even its most ride-or-die fans taking it 100% seriously. But in the YouTube comments underneath the recently released second official trailer for the upcoming "Fast X," fans and other assorted smart alecks have turned the trailer into their own personal riffing springboard.

It's unclear how the riffing began, but you don't have to scroll far to see that many YouTube commenters are participating in the joke. "The best part of the movie is where Dom says 'I don't need gravity, I got family' and drives off into space to race aliens. Absolutely amazing," posts 50k challenge with 0 video. Needless to say, the moment in question is not included in the trailer, although it might not be safe money to bet that it or something like it won't be in the actual movie. Logic error presents another variation on the theme: "Loved the part where Dom said 'even if we can't see you, you're part of the family John Cena' and then proceeds to commit war crimes with him. Truly one of the movies of all times."

That's basically the gist of the joke, pretending to respond rapturously to crazy things that aren't actually part of the "F&F" franchise ... at least not yet.

If every joker in the YouTube comments buys a ticket, it will be a box office triumph

"The part where Dom says 'I'M GONNA FAST TEN MY SEATBELT' is one of the most moments in cinematic history," exclaims Julia Capybara. Read a few of the jokes being made at the expense of the new "Fast X" trailer, and it's hard to stop. And there appears to be an informal competition to see who can come up with the wildest scenario: "The part when King Leonidas looked at Vin Diesel on his T-Rex and said 'There is nothing stronger than family,' was so emotionally moving and insanely well acted. 3/5 rating," gushes Molousen Jamir.

One of the motifs of the comedy carnage happening in the YouTube comments is the concept of unlikely crossovers with the "Fast and Furious" franchise. You can see characters from "Star Wars," "Transformers," "Back to the Future," "Jaws," and many more have imaginary (and hilarious) meetings with Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), who usually says something to them about family before speeding directly into the sun or transforming into an Autobot.

"Fast X" launches into theaters on May 19, 2023.
