Jean-Claude Van Damme gets spacey with splits done at zero gravity

Jean-Claude Van Damme is known for his signature splits. The actor otherwise known as the Muscles from Brussels often showed off his awesome flexibility during his action flicks. Then, he did the same during a viral Volvo commercial where he straddles two big rigs. Now, according to many sources including CNET, Van Damme is using space as his new frontier for those famous splits.

But how is this possible?

Well, it's a trick of the art of computer generated video. When his demonstration of shocking splits done between the two Volvo trucks was displayed, Jean-Claude Van Damme became the subject most likely to be placed into a film while doing what he apparently does best.

Enter Linh Mai, a filmmaker with a penchant for amazing her fans. She took Van Damme and put him between two satellites doing -- what else? -- the splits. This was in response to another video with Chuck Norris, who was doing the same thing up in the air and between two flying jets as a Christmas feat.

And so, as Jean-Claude Van Damme gets spacey with his splits done at zero gravity, Chuck Norris may or may not be amused. Stay tuned.
