A new commercial from Volvo Trucks featuring Jean Claude Van Damme has become an internet sensation overnight.

The video, which was designed to showcase the stability of Volvo steering, features Van Damme performing a complete leg split between two moving trucks. "I’ve had my ups and downs. My fair share of bumpy roads and heavy winds. That’s what made me what I am today," says Van Damme, 53, in a voiceover at the start of the video. "Now I stand here before you. What you see is a body crafted to perfection." YouTube comments on the video include words like "epic" and "mind-blowing." With over 7 million views, the video has exploded on the internet, and was recently featured on the Today Show.
