The camera pulls back to reveal that Van Damme's feet is firmly planted on the rear-view mirrors of two semi-trucks that are heading in reverse."A pair of legs engineered to defy the laws of physics," continues Van Damme, "and a mindset to master to the most epic of splits." Then, the two trucks slowly begin to separate, forcing the actor to perform one of his signature splits that he's done in his movies such asBloodsport. Epic indeed!
Whether you believe the video is a fake or that Van Damme actuallypushed the two trucks apart with his massively powerful legs, the video has nonetheless been a very successful marketing ploy. Here is a teaser video released just before the debut of "The Epic Split" showing Volvo Trucks technician Jan-Inge Svensson explaining to Van Damme what they have in store for him.
