The Fast and the Furious movies have been so successful that we're of course getting an eighth installment.

While Vin Diesel recently took to Instagram to share the title and poster for the speedy sequel (above), what many fans have been wondering is if Paul Walker's brothers, Cody Walker and/or Caleb Walker, might return in the sequel.

Vin Diesel has played many badass characters over the years — but his most enthusiastic role might just be that time he was a salesman for Street Sharks!

Before he was the Iron Giant, Dom Toretto, or Groot, the actor spent his time in the mid '90s promoting the new line of Street Sharks toys!

And because the internet is our friend, a clip JUST surfaced that shows the Furious 7 star selling the merchandise at a 1994 toy fair!

In case you're not familiar, these half man/half shark crime fighting hybrids had a short lived animated series from 1994-1997 — and were basically total Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knockoffs!

In the clip, the soon-to-be actor showcases the new products — and his sound effects make the relatively lame toys look like must haves!

Srsly, Diesel's conviction made the fishy characters so badass that we're pretty sure his pitch alone is responsible for the short-lived Street Sharks craze!
