Van Damme Shows Off His Signature Split in New Ad

Hollywood's most flexible action star tests the stability of Volvo's trucks with a classic move.

Even at 53, Jean Claude Van Damme's flexibility remains unrivaled and awe-inspiring. The split JCVD made famous in the seminal 1988 classic Bloodsport (which a couple of us M&F staffers regard as highly as Citizen Kane) makes its return in a new Volvo ad intended to showcase the stability of its line of industrial trucks. If you're in the market for a new rig, great. If not, this commercial will go down in history as one of the best auto ads of all time and demands to be watched.

JCVD is consistently showing that he's still got it — hopefully we'll be seeing a whole lot more of him after his awesome turn as the main villain in last year's The Expendables 2. And if you haven't seen it yet, make sure to check out the 2008 meta-drama that put him back on the radar, appropriately titled JCVD.
