You Have to See These Fast and Furious Memes, for Family

How can we not talk about family when family's all that we've got?

There is nothing stronger than family. That’s what Dom Toretto teaches us in The Fast and the Furious franchise. While the Torettos (Mia and Dom) are siblings, the entire franchise is about finding your family and standing with each other and doing whatever it takes to protect your family. And that kind of love and dedication to one another is powerful—so powerful that it can probably take on just about anyone, Thanos included.

As comic writer Stephanie Williams said, “The Furious Family could easily take out Thanos and Steppenwolf but the Justice League and Avengers couldn’t take out a threat to the Toretto family even if the threat is another Toretto.” And slowly, a meme was born. Who better to take on vampires or Thanos or a shark than Dom Toretto?

Dom Toretto saved Mufasa, he ran over Voldemort, and beyond, and Twitter knew one thing for sure: Family is forever and can defeat any big bad out there.

I love this franchise so much. I love that it tells us to love family and support each other. I love that it makes no sense at all most of the time. They went to space in a car in F9: The Fast Saga and we all just accepted that because family.
