It's no secret that the cast of the Fast & Furious franchise was extremely close, as was reflected in the on-screen chemistry that helped make the action series so successful.
This, too, is what no doubt accounts for making this Paul Walker tribute video, which the franchise released on its official YouTube channel Wednesday, so affecting.
Set to "Coming Home" by P.Diddy, and running slightly more than two minutes, the video is neither maudlin nor overwrought. It's simple, artful and genuine – which is exactly why it's the perfect tribute to Walker.

The tears were flowing from the contestants and judges on Wednesday night's emotional The X Factor as the final six singers fought to make it into next week's semifinals.
For the first time this season, contestants performed two songs, one from a diva and one "unplugged," which is when the raw emotions began to surface.
The waterworks started after Simon Cowell's group Restless Road performed "Wake Me Up!" by Avicii. The trio began crying when Kelly Rowland told them "each one of you left your hearts" on the stage.
