This Volvo ad is all over the news - questioning whether it's real or 'photoshopped'.
My guess is it's totally real.... and Van Damme started out in the split position and as the TRUCKS ROLLED FORWARD THEN HE CLOSED HIS LEGS RATHER THAN SPREAD THEM! Then the film was run in reverse, which made the split appear to be happening! GREAT PHOTOGRAPHY!
Watch carefully - the trucks are going backwards.............the film is running in reverse
