Diesel, who kissed Rodriguez on the forehead mid-video, responded to the actor’s words with a laugh. “Of course it’s not me!” he said.

In the caption of the post, Diesel added, “Proud of Our saga but we must try to reach higher each time. The challenge is what makes it fun and exciting. It’s also why this saga has reached the level that it has you have been the best fans in film history and we are forever grateful. Dom and Letty.”
