Vin Diesel on Capital FM

Vin Diesel’s gravelly, marblemouthed voice is an absolute natural wonder, which is presumably the reason he’s playing the voice of the walking alien tree Groot in the new Marvel movie Guardians Of The Galaxy. Last year, a video of Diesel singing a weirdly emotional cover of Rihanna’s “Stay” went viral, and someone at the British radio station Capital FM clearly realized that Diesel should sing a cover of every pop song with “Stay” in the title. So on a recent visit to the station, Diesel ended up singing Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” moving from operatic basso to deeply painful falsetto without any warning whatsoever. The cover is a thing of absolute majesty, and you can watch it below.

Shout out to Vin Diesel for being down to do absolutely whatever, and shout out to Sam Smith for being appropriately impressed.
