The '22 Jump Street' actor tries to balance between two food carts and make a horizontal split as they are moved farther apart.
Channing Tatum recreates Jean-Claude Van Damme's epic split, which became a viral hit, on the set of his new movie "22 Jump Street". While the "Universal Soldier" star balances between two moving trucks, the "White House Down" actor uses two food carts with the help from the movie's crew.
"I've had my ups and downs," he mimics Van Damme in a voice over. "Being an undercover cop. That's what made me what I am today. Surviving high school is no easy task. Neither being a college freshman at my age. But because of this, my body is now engineered to defy the law of physics and a mindset to master the most epic of split."
"This stunt was preformed (sic) by unprofessionals...," Tatum warned his Twitter followers. The father of one is seen standing with his arms crossed as the carts are moved farther apart. While Van Damme manages a total horizontal split, Tatum ends up on the floor throwing some expletives while holding his private parts.
