At 53, Jean-Claude has still got it! The new commercial for Volvo is designed to show the stable steering on Volvo trucks, but what’s got talking is the split that is done while the trucks separate!
The video was posted on Volvo’s YouTube channel on Nov. 13, and is already up to 10.6 million views — all because people really want to see yet another epic split from Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Jean-Claude Van Damme Does Impressive Split In New Video
“I’ve had my ups and downs, my fair share of bumpy roads & heavy winds,” Jean-Claude said in the beginning of the video, as we see an up close look at his serious facial expression. “That’s what made me what I am today. Now I stand here before you. What you see is a body crafted to perfection, a pair of legs engineered to defy the laws of physics and a mindset to master the most epic of splits.”
And “the most epic of splits” is exactly what we saw.
After his speech, the video slowly panned out as the trucks separated, showing that he had a foot balancing on each one — on their rear-view windows. The trucks were moving backward, separating further apart as they go futher back, until the martial-artist-turned-actor was in a full split.
The video is incredible, really and it’s not surprising that the video has gone viral. The best part came in the music — “Only Time,” by Enya played while the sun was setting. It truly was impressive and a visually beautiful video.
But don’t take our word for it — check it out for yourself. We promise, you’ll be in awe and just want to continue watching it over and over again.
