A Unique Truck Ad

The following commercial by Volvo, featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme, was posted on Youtube about a month ago and it soon went viral.

From the "about" section of the video:

"This live test was set up to demonstrate the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering -- a world first technology that makes the new Volvo FM easier to drive.

Filmed in Spain on a closed-off landing field at sunrise in one take."

In one take... IN ONE TAKE? Are you kidding me?
And surely there must have been some safety equipment. A net? A rope?
I can't believe the 53-year old (although he looks older in this in my opinion) Jean-Claude Van Damme would do this type of split without making sure that all necessary safety precautions had been taken. Even at these speeds, a fall would have been nasty.

In any case, never one to be outdone, Chuck Norris (or maybe "Chuck Norris") chose to use his annual Christmas message to respond to Jean-Claude Van Damme's provocation.

I wonder how long it will take the real Chuck Norris to claim copyright infringement...
