Action star Jean-Claude Van Damme carries out his famous split between two reversing trucks.
Its important to note here, that this is an advertisement for a feature on European Volvo trucks. this new feature is specifically designed to mitigate most or all trailer wobble while in reverse. also its important to understand that European trucks have a different coupling and securing mechanism which is superior compared to the United States equivalent, they are also much smaller then their US counterpart.

What bothered me is the obvious... Van Damme still splitting... but there's no Bloodsport part 2! 🙂
So whether the trucks are going forward or backward is what bothered you, lg and db?? What bothered me is having to watch a 30 sec commercial before watching yet another commercial. The stunt that JCVD did was for Volvo trucks...
those trucks could not back up that straight in unison - they are driving forward and the video is replayed in reverse.
No the trucks ARE going backwards. That is the entire point of the commercial, the truck can drive backwards without moving side to side. Honestly, the lack of common sense is shameful.
The trucks are in reverse. If you check out the trailer to the teaser – it specifically says the trucks will be going in reverse. http://youtu.be/bX1ukQpXH_M
It's quite simple really. The trucks are not in reverse. It starts with him doing the splits and the 2 trucks are standing still. They then start driving forward gettting closer together until he is standing up. Then the video recording is played in reverse.
Even if that's true db, it still means he was doing the splits standing on two MOVING trucks.
