It’s the split seen around the world (see below), but have no fear for the Van Man. According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, the epic split was as safe and sound as the trucks themselves.

Van Damme’s feet aren’t secured to the mirrors, video director Andreas Nilsson said, “but we had him rigged so that if he would fall off he wouldn’t die obviously. We didn’t want to be responsible for killing the Muscles from Brussels.”

Well, that’s a relief. Cause, obviously, if he died, that would be a major bummer. And think of those recalls!

The stunt was completed in one take, so the sunlight would coincide perfectly with Van Damme, 53. And as luck and talent and lots of rehearsals would have it, this is an epic sail!
