Jean Claude Van DAMME He Did That!

Have y’all seen the sickest ad that has come out in recent history? If you haven’t, then you need to.

Jean Claude Van Damme, original action movie goon collaborated with Volvo for a commercial about their new trucks with power steering. And he basically told us that we all need to go sit down because this is what 56-year-old badassery can look like. See below:

I’ve watched this about 20 times and I still go “AW SHITTTT!” every single time. Because DAMMMMMMBBBB!!! My dude hit a split between two trucks THAT WERE GOING BACKWARDS like it was nothing. He did it while looking all zen, like he was almost bored. CHILE WUT?!? I can’t e’em touch my toes without bending my knees. Meanwhile, AARP-eligible Jean Claude just came through and slayed us all.

MAN, bro! And the Enya song was perfect. It was the cherry on the “watch me do this and not break a sweat” sundae and I’m here for it. Volvo needs to give their marketing team a bonus because this was GENIUS! I don’t e’em drive and I wanna go out and buy one of their cars. I’m so impressionable.

Look at this and marvel:

Jean Claude Van Damme Split

And shouts to those truck drivers also for not killing Jean Claude Van Daaaaaaaaaammmmmmmnnnn! I have always crushed on this man since I was a lil girl. Bloodsport anyone? Juss Sayin. Get it together gentlemen’s. It’s not enough to be all bulky and stiff wit yo trapezius muskles all under your ear lobes. Stretch! It’s good for everyone. High 5, Volvo. High 5, Jean. High 5 all parties involved in the making of this simple brilliance.

    I saw this last week and I was like eeeeeekkkk!!!!!!!! Watched it like 15 times.
    This was indeed GENIUS.

  12. November 18, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Look, when I saw this on mashable I was like OMGoodness.
    I hate you btw, had me cackling @ “Meanwhile, AARP-eligible Jean Claude just came through and slayed us all.” & “I don’t e’em drive and I wanna go out and buy one of their cars. I’m so impressionable.”
    Actually this whole this is your tom foolery & I was like if they steering precision is that perfect “Where do I sign up?” Indeed great marketing.

    This isn’t the first crazy ad Volvo has done for their trucks but it’s definitely one for the ages.

    The day that I saw this was the day that I found my religion. I am a believer! I went on a Van Damme bender and started rewatching his movies.

  16. November 18, 2013 at 11:51 am

    I was very impressed. He’s obviously taking extremely good care of himself. Jean-Claude is old enough to be my father and I could never do the splits, even when I was a child. LOL. Thanks for sharing this ad! I had never seen it before.

    Who ever was the Ad person to ckmeup woth rhis deserves a new volvo and a raise.

    This man,lawd this maaan, not only is he still lithe like a reed in the wind but he still looks younger than his age. Men need to recognize that this is what a MAN stretches and looks like, Jean Claude Van-Daaayuumm indeed.
    I’m watching his movies when I get home from work, got me feeling all nostalgic.

    whatever ad person thought up the idea for this deserves that check.

    not just what he did…but the trucks were going BACKWARDS as he did it!!

    The only complaint is that Volvo shoulda saved this for a SuperBowl commercial.

  24. November 18, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    Good Gawd! This ad is everything. But I has questions!!! How fast were these trucks going? Who did the math to know how far apart they needed to be so he didn’t fall? Chile.

    Were those bad boys going BACKWARDS?!! And his azz was in a split?! This ad gave me life! I’ve never been into Van Damme like that, but after this ad I briefly contemplated the…um….OTHER ways in which his physical prowess and flexibility would be a bonus. *fans self*
