Vin Diesel recently did an interview with a Brazilian YouTuber named Carol Moreira to promote his latest 2-hour grunt fest, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Vin Diesel looks kind of like an anthropomorphic penis, which is entirely fitting, since he acted like a throbbing erection through most of the interview. Unfortunately, Vin was too boner blinded to realize that Carol the YouTuber wasn’t having it.
Vin hits on Carol almost immediately after they begin the interview. Vin’s game isn’t a subtle one; apropos of nothing, he eventually starts calling Carol “sexy” and “beautiful“, and repeatedly telling her he loves her. Several times he turns to other people in the room and asks how he’s supposed to go on with the interview with Carol distracting him with her beauty. He’s wearing glasses the whole time, so we can’t be sure how hard he was eye-fucking her. But I think it’s safe to assume it got to the point where he came dangerously close to popping the lenses out of those frames.
Around the 5:07 mark, he awkwardly asks Carol if she wants to get out of there and get lunch. Carol changes the subject faster than I change the channel when I stumble across Babylon A.D. on television.
That interview is awkward for 6,234 reasons. One of them is that the last time I checked, Vin Diesel was claiming that he was still with his long-term girlfriend and mother of his three kids Paloma Jimenez. Another is that Carol made it clear that she’s definitely not feeling Vin’s endless flirting. Carol opened her YouTube video by side-eying Vin’s grossness. Carol says:
“He began to hit on me in the middle of the interview, say that I was pretty, and he interrupted the interview three times to talk about it. I was laughing, completely uncomfortable. I was not sure what to do. I just laughed because it was a very delicate situation. I did not like it. At the time I did not know how to react, but you will see that I was uncomfortable, it was not nice that he interrupted my work.”
I’m sure that when Vin responds, it will be with an uncomfortably-intimate Facebook video. I’m sure he’ll deny he was being serious. After all, if Vin really wanted to seal the deal with Carol, he would have lowered the lights, grabbed a mic and crooned out some Rihanna.
