Chuck Norris Spoofs Van Damme Split — Between Airplanes (Video)

By Ken Mandel   |  

Chuck Norris threw his 73-year-old legs into the competition for the most epic of epic splits.

An action star in his own right, Norris took Jean-Claude Van Damme's balancing act between two large moving trucks to new heights, literally, albeit with some digital help.

Norris, the star of "Walker, Texas Ranger" and "Delta Force" is shown performing a split between two passenger planes in midair, with a foot on each wing. If that wasn't enough, he's also balancing 11 military paratroopers, shaped like a human Christmas tree, on his cowboy hat.

Take that, Van Damme.

(Story continues below.)





The original spot was unveiled by Volvo in November, and quickly became an Internet sensation. A week later, actor Channing Tatum followed with a spoof, in which the "Magic Mike" and "21 Jump Street" star prepares to demonstrate "the stability and precision of the food carts."

Using the same voice-over technique and Enya's "Only Time" as a soundtrack, Tatum doesn't get nearly as far, and ends up writhing in pain on the ground.



A Georgia politician also made a spoof. Mike Collins, a Republican candidate running in the 10th District, used the stunt as a backdrop to speak about the "disastrous" effects of ObamaCare.




Norris' take was created by the Hungarian animation company Delov Digital and titled "Greetings from Chuck (the epic Christmas split)."
