A few moments ago, I saw a preview for the newest installment of The Fast and The Furious series. This reminded me of a proud moment of which I feel the world should be aware. It was during the infamous Superbowl commercials when I first discovered they were making yet another Fast & Furious. As though this wasn't awesome enough, the original cast is back for this one! I must tell you that this is not sarcasm--I'm legitimately excited. I like The Fast and the Furious. Sometimes, when I'm driving around I listen to the theme song from 2 Fast 2 Furious (when I'm not listening to Move Bitch, also by Ludacris).
But we are not here to debate the caliber of my cinematic choices; so let's get back to the story.
The preview comes on, and one of my friends said, "Oh my God! There's a third Fast and Furious movie?!" Not only did I need to correct her, but I detected disgust in her voice, so I also needed to defend these fine films.
"No," I said, "this is the fourth."
"No way," she exclaimed in great disbelief.
"Allow me to explain," I began, "First, there was The Fast and the Furious. Next came 2 Fast 2 Furious. Then we have The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift...which was the third. And now this one, hence there are four Fast and Furious films."
I've had a lot of proud moments in my life, but defending the Fast and Furious films is up there among the proudest.
