The "Fast and Furious" Tribute Video for Paul Walker is Pretty Awful

12/5/2013 3:30 AM PST, by


By "awful," of course, we don't mean "poorly made," we mean "terribly sad" -- because even if you aren't a fan of the "Fast and Furious" franchise, and just a fan of humanity and the fragility of life in general, then you understand the magnitude of what's happened: a man, beloved by many, died in a fiery car accident, and it's a horrible, awful tragedy. 

Just try to watch the video (which is musically accompanied by Skylar Grey's "Coming Home" and features lyrics like, "I'm coming home/ Tell the World I'm coming home/  Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday/ I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes/ I'm coming home, I'm coming home") and see if you don't become a little overwrought with emotion, too.

RIP, Paul.

Dearest Sarah Taylor Spangenberg,

The title of this article is clearly click bait. You want people to be outraged. You want people to see, "pretty awful" and rush to attack you for saying something wrong about a tribute video.

It's a tactic many sites use to get people to click on an article. Normally it's just worthy of an eye roll. In this case, after your last two articles on Paul Walker, what it is, is your third strike.

Your need for attention is despicable. You would do anything for just a few extra views huh? Sadly I play into your game. Every view, every comment, that just means a few extra dollars in your pocket. I just hope you have a hard time spending the money when it sinks in how you made it off the back of a dead man.

You are seriously desperate for attention - based on your articles, you lack creativity and have no idea how to get positive attention. So far, every article written by you is very poor and every comment is negative. And yet, you still do not get it.
Personally, I think it is a beautiful tribute video. And thank you for making us aware of "magnitude of what has happened." If it was not for you, I would not have realized (I hope you can sense sarcasm in this sentence).
I honestly believe you have absolutely no journalistic education...

Paul Walker was a beauitful soul. May Paul & Roger rest in pardise <3 My prayers go out to their families. The outcome of this tragic accident, shows you should always appreciate your life & loved ones to the fullest. You'll never know what tommorow brings to you.

I am really disappointed in the way the articles by Sarah have been written lately. They seem condescending and disrespectful. They read like they have been written by a teenage girl. Have some respect for Paul and his family.

What a horrible article, poorly written. You, Sarah Taylor are baiting and it shows terribly in every sentence. I hope your boss sees all these comments and realizes how horrible you are.
R.I.P. Paul Walker. I thought it was a great tribute.

You should be ashamed of yourselves, Fishwrapper...

Great Heartfelt Video Tribute

As a professional race car driver, We understand the danger of "speed" on and off the track.. That "Need for Speed" is something that we are born with (Racers Blood).. We have a constant need to reconfirm our mortality to feel alive.. All to often this "need" ends in tragity for our loved ones.
RIP Mr. Rodas & Mr. Walker.. My blessing go out to your Family, Friends and Loving fans..

That being said. Time and time again you (Fishwrapper) distort or "LIE" about an article to mislead people to click on your link. AGAIN, using these "AWFUL" tactics under these circumstances is truly shameless.
I urge others to follow my pledge to NEVER click onto your site ever again.

Its a nice tribute.... but Paul Walker was way more than just "Brian" from the fast and the furious. A tribute should be made for all he has done in his short life time, most importantly including all the charity and humanitarian efforts he has been apart of.

I don't see anything to be disturbed about. I don't see anything that is 'pretty awful' except the way the this article is written.
