You might recall a recent stunt involving Jean-Claude Van Damme performing a split between to moving Volvo semi trucks– going in reverse! It was meant to promote the control and ride quality of the Volvo FL Series trucks, and generated a lot of buzz– even spawning a bizarre Rob Ford video. But it may have just been topped by none other than Chuck Norris.
This video shows everyone’s favorite windmill-kicking Texas Ranger raising the stakes, balancing between two Lockeed C-5 Galaxy’s (one of the largest aircraft in the world), with a special forces team balancing on his head. Would you expect anything less from Chuck Norris?
Now, the rub here is that the video is a CGI creation by Delov Digital, a VFX company. Rather than the voice over from the man doing the split, they inserted a recording from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, adding to the epic nature of this video. Sure, it’s not real, but when you make a fictional video like this, the only way to make it worthwhile is to go so absurdly over the top that we have to pay attention.
Oh, and here’s the Rob Ford spoof video. You’re welcome:
