Jean-Claude Van Damme Epic Split
WATCH: The Epic Split feat. Jean-Claude Van Damme

Not too long ago, Jean-Claude Van Damme boldly described himself as a “very hard seed” of a man with a “kind of liquid cream substance” inside.

Today, he proved it. Today, he proved it.

  1. Sophie

    Jean Claude God-Damn!

  2. Chris

    Why are they going backwards?

  3. Jean Claude AND Enya. that’s a lot of 80s to absorb.

  4. Cock Dr

    Yay Volvo!
    It is sad when the commercials are more entertaining than the shows.

  5. Deacon Jones

    The man!

    Bloodsport = One of best 80s action movies ever.

    Jackson, you going to go to Hong Kong?

    I love anything full contact. I need a few more scars on my face.

    But I heard you can get killed at that Kumite.

    Only if you fuck up.

    Hmm. This post has been up for over twenty minutes, and no moronic comments from deacon jones or that zaloog pervert?
    **wave of relaxation**

  7. Inner Retard

    Your move Chuck Norris!

  8. God dammit, I saw the headline and thought that at the very least I’d be seeing the lower portion of his face come right off.

    This was much. much better.

  9. Everything about that commercial was fucking awesome. Van Damme, Enya, everything.

  10. Saw this yesterday, dude is a badass. He just shit all over Chuck Norris and that stupid running meme about him being so tough, all over him, ha ha ha.

      Van Damme was always an amazing martial artist. He’d clean taht idiot Chuck Norris’ clock without even having to change his shirt afterward.

    May have taken him 20 years but today he earned my respect.

  12. if you think there’s no CGI here, you’re dumber than a box of rocks.

  13. The WSJ has the inside scoop here: http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2013/11/15/how-volvo-created-the-jean-claude-van-damme-video/

    Apparently it’s all real, though they had safety lines that aren’t visible in the film. (The director says “We didn’t want to be responsible for killing the Muscles from Brussels” – what a line!) They’re going backwards just to add an extra level of difficulty. I normally hate advertisements, but fuck this is a good one!

    Another great quote from the director: “The spots he has been in before have looked down on him, in my opinion. I was looking up, in celebration.”

    If anyone here hasn’t seen JCVC, now’s the time!

  14. For some reason I read the byline and totally thought this was going to be the stuff of nightmares where his head cracks open like a walnut and God-knows-what came crawling out.

    I’m fine, really.

  15. Amazing. Jean Claude has balls of steel. Now widely spaced.

  16. Innit

    He’ s still sexy and still badass.LOVE this man :D

  17. steph

    No, it would have been more awesome if he had fallen on his balls! Just kidding (sort of). I’m more freaked out over the driving!

  18. Allion

    Superb.

  19. jive

    He’s still got it!

  20. Bob

    Honestly, the thing that impresses me most isn’t Van Damme or the trucks, themselves, but the drivers. That’s some precision driving there. If one moved even at a slightly different speed, or pulled even an inch or so to the side – Van Splat!
