It’s been five weeks since Paul Walker tragically lost his life in a car accident, and his Fast & Furious co-star Vin Diesel is making sure his spirit lives on.
The 46-year-old actor took to Facebook this week to share an 18-minute long video he made in honor of his fallen friend.
“A glimpse… of Dom and Brian… off screen,” writes Vin, referencing their movie characters.
The tribute features the pair often goofing around off screen as they promote the franchise.
Other shots show the duo between takes on set having a good time.
As the 18-minute mark nears, footage airs of the cast and crew celebrating what seems to be Paul’s last birthday (his 40th) in September.

After he blows out the candles, he hugs Vin, who then decides to lead another hilarious rendition of “Happy Birthday.”
Co-stars Tyrese Gibson and Michelle Rodriguez are both seen celebrating with the birthday boy.
“It’s a blessing working with your brother on and off screen,” Vin says at the very end during a Moviefone’s Unscripted interview with Paul.
“Pablo…Miss you…” flashes on the screen, as the video fades out.
The duo became close friends after meeting on set of the first installment in 2001 and went on to star in five of the six movies together.
Vin did not star in the 2003 sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, while Paul skipped 2006’s The Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift.
They were on break from filming a seventh installment when the father of one and his business partner Roger Rodas, a former race car driver, died in a single car accident on Nov. 30.

Roger was behind the wheel when he lost control of his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT and crashed into a pole. The car immediately erupted into flames.
They had just finished hosting a charity function through Paul’s non-profit organization, Reach Out WorldWide, in Santa Clarita, Calif.Two days after the tragedy, Vin addressed a growing crowd of fans at the crash site.
“I just wanted to say thank you,” he said through a police loud speaker. “Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him.”
He also posted a touching message on his Facebook account, quoting Scottish poet Thomas Campbell, “To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.”
He then wrote, “Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now and the profound impact your full life has had on it, on Us… on me…”
Vin has remembered his pal nearly every week on Facebook.
In early December, the Fast & Furious franchise celebrated the life of the star with an emotional video set to Diddy and Skylar Grey’s hit “Coming Home.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the team behind Fast & Furious 7 have decided to “retire” his character, Brian O’Conner, rather than not use him in the film at all, or kill him off.
The report claims director James Wan, writer Chris Morgan and Universal Studios’ Jeffrey Kirschenbaum spent weeks deliberating on whether or not to use the existing footage of Paul, who died halfway through shooting.

“The trio then devised a plan to tweak the existing script so that Walker would remain a part of the story but could be written out, allowing the franchise to continue without him," reports THR.
"The changes will require some additional scenes to be written and shot, but the eight-month delay of release provides plenty of time."
Fast & Furious 7 hits theaters on April 10, 2015.
