A Grand Theft Auto V YouTuber named GTA Wise Guy has put together a touching video recorded entirely within GTA V to celebrate the life of Fast and Furious star Paul Walker.

Walker died in November 2013 in Los Angeles when a Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in crashed at a speed of more than 100 mph and burst into flames. The coroner’s report said the horrific accident was caused not by drugs or alcohol, but loss of control of the vehicle for reasons unknown. The lack of an explanation only added to the shock of Walker’s sudden death, which happened while Walker had still been shooting scenes for Fast and Furious 7.

Most of the user-created content coming out of the Grand Theft Auto V community either apes action movies, or is intended as little more than slapstick fun. GTA Wise Guy put his recording and editing skills to more serious use, and created a tribute to Walker that any fan is sure to appreciate. GTA Wise Guy’s video is set to “See You Again,” the Wiz Khalifa single featured on the Fast and Furious 7 soundtrack.
