Vin Diesel may be the most-liked Santa Claus on Facebook
Every day, the Daily Dot finds something that people on Facebook are sharing and, in turn, shares it with you—with a little explanation. Here's today's share.
Were you worried that your buddy Vin Diesel was tapping out this holiday season?
Diesel posted a picture of himself, wearing a Santa cap and grinning like, well, a kid at Christmas, to Facebook Tuesday evening. And with it, he posted a profound message of cheer and goodwill to all humankind:
“Haha... The Holiday spirit... yeah, I'm in."
Nearly 400,000 people have already far liked the picture. Though it seems a parody, not far removed from the #VinDieselSunday jokes on Twitter, it’s actually pretty much in line with his usual Facebook activity. In September, for instance, he changed his cover photo to one of himself, wearing a tight t-shirt and sporting that same massive grin, captioned with childish letters that read “smile more.”
Diesel’s phenomenally popular on Facebook. He’s got 36 million fans there (compare that with Barack Obama, who has a mere 34 million). Judging from the comments, most fans like the picture because it reminds them they want to have sex with him.
“Can i sit on your lap santa,” asked Debrow Toni.
“You can come down my chimney anytime!” offered Blanche Harding.
