Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Jean-Claude Van Damme performs one of his signature splits -- between two moving trucks -- in a Volvo Trucks ad that reached 2 million views on YouTube in a single day.
Starting with a closeup and a voiceover, the 53-year-old action star says "I've had my ups and downs. My fair share of bumpy roads and heavy winds. That's what made me what I am today. Now I stand here before you. What you see is a body crafted to perfection."
As the shot pulls back, the Belgian actor says he has "a pair of legs engineered to defy the laws of physics, and a mindset to master the most epic of splits."
And that's when it happens.
Volvo says Van Damme's incredible stunt is possible thanks to its Dynamic Steering, which "provides perfect directional stability."
