Jean-Claude Van Damme's epic split in a viral Volvo ad last month has found its competitor. A funny video spoof featuring a CGI version of Chuck Norris imitating Van Damme's split was recently released by its creator, a Hungarian animation firm Delov Digital.
In the video, Norris can be seen doing split between two planes which are in the air. Imitating the star of "The Expendables 2", the 73-year-old actor stares ahead with his hands folded on his chest. Some paratroopers make a formation of triangle on his head. The video is closed with a message "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" and the paratroopers light up just like a Christmas tree.
Van Damme made headlines in November after he carried out the gymnastic stunt between two moving trucks at the age of 53 in an advertisement video for Volvo. Back then, the company said that safety equipment was edited out, but the split were real. The video garnered more than 7 million views one day after the release.
A few days later, Channing Tatum parodied the Volvo video on the set of his movie "22 Jump Street". Instead of two moving trucks, the father of one used two food carts which were pushed by filming crew. The "White House Down" actor ended up being in pain while holding his private parts.
