To demonstrate the stability of Volvo trucks, the Swedish company, Volvo Car Corporation used the epic split of martial artist Jean-Claude Van Damme.
We’ve seen him doing his popularized split practically almost anywhere. The last time I saw him was on Godaddy.com’s homepage that promotes a bakeshop who just open his website, photo below.
But this commercial is so daring that everyone seeing this would surely be amazed. Like where can you get a martial artists, action star and director to spread his legs in 180 degrees while stepping at the edge of the side mirror?
Yup, only Jean-Claude Van Damme can do this effectively.
Though I guess that he’s equipped with some harness attached on one of his legs on one truck just in case he’ll fell-off. That is not to mention that the scene could be shot while the the trucks where in a 1kph speed – which could be just sped-up on post production.
Anyway, the five million plus views on YouTube is a testament that this commercial is really amazing, and that the Volvo company really sent their message for their trucks.
