    Volvo’s unforgettable Jean-Claude Van Damme advertisement in November, which featured the ‘80s action star doing splits in-between two moving trucks, has inspired a plethora of spoofs, but Hungarian production company Delov Digital took their parody to the digital skies.

    The video features a virtual version of legendary tough guy Chuck Norris doing his own split in-between two United States Air Force jets. As the camera begins to widen, we see the  “Walker: Texas Ranger” star balancing ten men- on his head. Like the Volvo ad, the spoof features Enya’s “Only Time,” but instead of Norris speaking, a narrator recites equally epic lines from “Hamlet.”

    “Some say that ever 'gainst that season comes wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated, this bird of dawning singeth all night long; and then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad, the nights are wholesome, then no planets strike, no fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm, so hallow'd and so gracious is the time," the narrator says.

    As the camera pans out more, similarly to the Volvo ad, the men are seen stacked in the shape of a Christmas tree, with different color lights either in their hands or on their bodies. The end result is a more colorful and slightly more “epic” split than Mr. Van Damme's.
