For those of you who have watched the latest instalment of the high-octane “Fast & Furious” franchise, you’re probably wondering what was the song used in the “For Paul” tribute at the end of the film.
Oh, you know, the one that goes:
It’s been a long day without you my friend, and I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. We’ve come a long way from where we began, oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. When I see you again.
Which, if you asked us, is perfectly in line with how the film was made as well as how it all came together at the end with an emotional tribute that can make even grown men cry.
It mustn’t have been easy for the “Fast & Furious” cast and crew to put together the Paul Walker tribute at the end of “Furious 7“.
In fact, Paul Walker’s best buddy Vin Diesel has said it’s the hardest movie he’s ever done, while co-star Tyrese noted how the cast is still mourning their deceased friend and colleague, who passed away tragically in November 2013.
In fact, there’s an entire “Furious 7” cast interview with TODAY, where they talked about how each and every single one of them have been dealing with the loss and grief.
Film director James Wan had the gruelling task of making, editing, and basically putting it altogether for the world. And we don’t blame him. We, too, found it hard to hold back our tears when we watched it recently.
And now, who better to premiere the official music video for the song that was used in the tribute than Vin Diesel himself, who lovingly calls his co-star and best buddy Paul Walker, “Pablo”.
Share via his Facebook page, Vin Diesel (who plays Dominic Toretto) simply captioned the video, “Pablo, this weekend you turned the world into a family. Thanks for the love.” In less than a day, the “See You Again” video has been viewed over a whopping total of 31 million times – and counting.
Truth be told, we’re already tearing all over again :(
