Johannesburg - Don’t quit your day job Vin Diesel!

The Hollywood action hero posted a funny Facebook video of himself dancing to the music of Beyonce and Katy Perry.

These were surprising song choices for a man who made his name on beefy action epics like Riddick and The Fast and the Furious franchise.

Diesel, however, claims the video was simply a celebration and a thank you to his fans.

“Guys I'm just excited, I'm happy and I'm shouting out to you guys to say thank you,” he said.

“Universal just called and told me Riddick is number one on the DVD charts.

“There's no way in the world Riddick would have been made without you guys.

“It's a win for all of us. Really, really want to thank you so much... I'm excited.”

In the seven-and-a-half minute black-and-white clip, the 46-year-old Diesel celebrates the good news with a lip-synching, crotch-grabbing, lip-licking performance.

The video, titled 'You know I love music' starts with Diesel doing a rendition of Katy Perry’s Dark Horse, licking his lips and sticking out his tongue.

Diesel then ups the sexy ante once Beyonce’s Drunk In Love starts, grabbing his crotch and spinning around.

The video has been a hit online, receiving half-a-million likes in just 8 hours, according to the Daily Mail.

The stunt may have been all in the name of fun, but Diesel has history as a dancer. An equally hilarious video of a very young Vin Diesel showing off his break-dancing skills also surfaced on YouTube a few years ago. - Tonight Reporter
