Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Volvo Ad Gets Spoofed By Chuck Norris [Video]By: Tobias Roth - December 21, 2013
Did everyone hear about that amazing ad that Jean-Claude Van Damme did for Volvo, in which he did the splits between two Volvo trucks? Well, the well-known action star has now had his ad re-done not once, but twice.
First, Channing Tatum got in on the action, spoofing him by getting on top of two food carts, and now the famous Chuck Norris has made his version of the stunt. Chuck Norris spoofed the stunt with two planes, and balancing nearly a dozen men on his head.
Of course, the Chuck Norris video is totally fake, and it was made by as a holiday greeting from Hungarian animation firm Delov Digital. The video shows Jean-Claude Van Damme’s act being spoofed when Norris is seen standing on the wing tips of two planes, wearing a hat that balances 11 suited men, holding each other in the formation of a Christmas tree.
To follow along with Jean-Claude Van Damme’s original, the video features the song “Only Time” by Enya, and the opening monologue features lines from the first scene of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The ad was used as a Christmas greeting, and it is being called “the epic Christmas split.”
For those that have yet to see the original video, take a look and then compare it to Chuck Norris’ version.
Did he completely put Jean-Claude Van Damme to shame with the new version? View them both and decide for yourself.
Also, for those interested in the Chaning Tatum version that he did on the set of 22 Jump Street, which released its trailer recently, check out this video.
