Nov. 14 (UPI) --
It's hard not to feel anything but respect for Jean-Claude Van Damme
, the famed Belgian martial artist and action star, who manages to perform an impossibly difficult-looking split between the side-view mirrors of two moving trucks.
The Volvo ad above is mean to "demonstrate the stability and precision of Volvo dynamic steering," but what it really shows off is JCVD's strength and stamina. After dozens of films, including Street Fighter and The Expendables, the 53-year-old still has what it takes to stand out -- notably, incredibly robust groin muscles.
The serenity of Van Damme's countenance during the whole effort is only mirrored by the commercial's soundtrack, Enya's "Only Time."
