Anything Van Damme Can Do Chuck Norris Can Do Better

chuckI am a true fan of Jean-Claud Van Damme’s epic splits for the Volvo commercial. I think it’s perfect and beautiful and I love it unironically and earnestly. I don’t know why. I just do. So I was quite startled and a little taken aback when Chuck Norris (OF ALL PEOPLE) stepped (or, rather, flew) in with a spoof!

Who does he think he is?

Someone who can cut a knife with butter?

Someone who turned down The Terminator roles because he hates chick flicks?

Someone who can strangle you with a cordless phone? (For more Chuck Norris jokes, go here.)

Why does Chuck Norris always feel like he has to outdo the muscles from Brussels? I guess there is some kind of rivalry among Kung Fu fighters that I will never understand. At least this rivalry produces beautiful art for us common folks to appreciate. Van Damme  does splits between 2 moving semis?

Pfffft. Norris does it between 2 jets with 11 guys on his shoulders quoting Shakespeare.

And that’s how it’s done, son.
