The Fast & Furious franchise has always been the talk of the town, and there has been a meltdown on social media ever since the trailer for Fast X dropped. The much-anticipated movie will be released on May 19, 2023, in the USA.

Vin Diesel's character Dominic "Dom" Toretto is the butt of the joke in most of the memes involving Fast X's trailer.

Twitter user Gonzalo Del Rio didn't hold back in saying that Toretto's family is a little too extreme.


Twitter flooded with memes and jokes after Fast X trailer release

Memes involving franchise lead Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto family has always been a classic in the franchise, and it wasn't any different this time either.

Prime Videos' The Boys and Axe's official Twitter handle joined this meme fest, with The Boys' page dropping a picture of Kimiko saying "Family" as a subtle reminder of the joke. Axe edited a picture of a deodorant in a muscle car and joined the party unannounced.

One user posted a video of several people cosplaying Dominic Toretto, with the caption saying this is how he and his "Family" are going to show up in the theater to watch the film.

Some other memes and comments on the micro-blogging platform were as follows:

After watching the over-the-top stunt scenes in the trailer, one fan said that was the mandate since Jason Mamoa was in the film, giving a shoutout to his Aquaman character. One fan even said that Mamoa looked like an Anime character in some scenes.

One of the most hilarious comments was that the filmmakers could have named the film "Fast-10 Your Seatbelt," given that it is the tenth installment of the Fast & Furious franchise.
