EPIC! Jean-Claude Van Damme's Volvo ad goes viral

Published On: Nov 15 2013 07:51:46 AM EST

53-year-old Jean-Claude Van Damme is gaining a lot of attention for a new Volvo ad that shows him doing the splits between two moving trucks.

This isn't your typical auto ad - it is more like a trailer for an action movie. Jean-Claude Van Damme can be seen doing the splits between two semi-trucks in an ad for Volvo. It is quite amazing (if I do say so myself) for a 53-year-old guy.

The advertisement is called "The Epic Split". A lot of people are wondering whether the stunt is real or if it is just that - a stunt. Volvo says the ad is, indeed, the real deal. The automaker says some safety equipment was used but there was no green screen or computer generated images to help make the ad.

Watch the entire ad and tell us what you think.
