Jean-Claude Van Damme Performs Absolutely Epic Split In Volvo Ad .If you love martial arts and action movies, then you are without a doubt familiar with this legendary name that needs no introduction: Jean-Claude Van Damme.
The stunt was real too. According to the video’s about section, it was filmed in one take in Spain, on a closed-off landing strip.
A Volvo rep confirmed that the spot was done in just one take, and if the actor had gotten a leg cramp while filming, he would have been protected by plenty of safety lines that were not visible in the final video. He also was aided by small platforms on the trucks’ side mirrors that helped prop up his feet. But none of this takes away from the badassery of doing a perfect split between two massive moving vehicles.
