Jean-Claude Van Damme was born in 1960. He is older than the current president of the United States, the Super Bowl and the nation of Fiji. And yet the Belgian action hero is still capable of physical feats that would cower a man half his age, as evidenced by his star turn in a remarkable Volvo advertisement released Wednesday.
In the ad, titled "The Epic Split," the Street Fighter star is shown straddling the mirrors of two trucks driving parallel down a closed highway. As Van Damme delivers a voiceover describing a "body crafted to perfection," the trucks slowly drift apart, until Van Damme's legs are splayed out in a perfect, 180-degree split.
