Vin Diesel and Conan Talk Facebook Stardom, Fan ArtBy: Josh Wolford - May 24, 2013
Actor Vin Diesel is quite popular on Facebook, and not in a “he’s famous so he has a few million likes” sort of way. We’re talking social media superstar here, a real influencer. The guy has 7 million more likes than the President. And with treats like special Rihanna covers, what’s not to love about his Facebook presence?
Earlier this month, he even joked that Facebook owed him billions of dollars:
“Facebook used to ask me to come up to their office to explain what the f*ck I was doing, and why I had so many fans. What was unique was: I never let anyone do a post, I never let anyone post for me in the last four years. My audience knows me so well on the page that if my producing partner’s in the room when I post, they’ll know somebody was around me. That’s kind of cool, that’s how sophisticated they are. Facebook really owes me billions of dollars. But whatever.”
His Facebook popularity has reached Conan, who discussed it with him on last night’s show.
They talk Diesel’s 42 million+ Facebook “friends,” fan feedback, and Conan shares some interesting Vin Diesel fan art. Check it out below:
