This video raises a very good point: Why isn’t Vin Diesel in the Magic Mike movies?

Back in the day, before he became famous as an action star, Diesel, 47, was a street-performing breakdancer, and this video – undated but so clearly from the ’80s – shows off the future star skinnier than you’ve probably seen him before and pulling off some decent moves.

The video isn’t new to the internet: It previously made the rounds back in 2011 and LIVE with Kelly and Michael made Diesel sit through the video last year.

But as it so happens, the internet rediscovers things every now and then, and a Reddit posting on Monday helped the clip go viral all over again.
