Van Damme does splits between moving trucks?
My first thought was that it is fake, but apparently it's real.
-----------------------------------------------------------------







Jean-Claude Van Damme has chosen the most dramatic way to prove his post-50s physical prowess in a commercial stunt that will leave you picking your jaw up off the desk.

In a new TV ad that has spread quickly across the internet, the 53-year-old actor famous for his martial arts action films of the 80s and 90s proves without doubt his claim of performing "the most epic of splits".

As calm as a tranquilised sloth, Van Damme stands with his arms crossed and one foot each on two golden Volvo trucks reversing on a runway.

With a serene Enya track playing and the sun setting in the background, the camera pans out as the trucks separate and force Van Damme into a majestic display of the splits as he is suspended between the vehicles.

It is intended to be an ad for Volvo's dynamic steering technology but the internet has dubbed it a win for the seasoned actor whose performance is awe-inspiring

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

man there's no way this is real. slight mistake by either driver and he'd have lost one or both legs. Awesome video still though.

That's what I think also, maybe it's a big troll and they'll get away with it by saying "hey it's a viral ad".

Here they are going through the motions as if it is real. I'm not sure, it seems like bullshit, but everyone involved is saying it's real.

Ballys and impressive at the same time.

I guess it didn't matter whether we elected Clinton or Trump.

They won't let Jackie Chan do his own stunts in the US. How would they allow JCVD to do that for real?

Physically his shoes would have to be attached to the trucks, then I would believe this would be possible. Otherwise I'm calling shenanigans

crazy, but i have to think there are some safety cables & shit that have been removed from the finished scene. way too dangerous w/o.

therefore, prob not fake, as he is still doing the spits between moving trucks. no way he pulled that off w/o a little trickery though.

or the cars could have been computer calibrated making it a lot safer.

also yeah maybe a safety net that was digitally erased.
