    Wonder if Chuck Norris would do this?

    I saw that commercial a few days ago. JCVD will do just about anything to get some air time these days.

    Who do you think taught JCvD to do this...

    Except Chuck pushes the trucks out of the way afterward.

    I'd heard about that but never seen it. Wow. I wonder what safety precautions they put in place.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Chuck Norris, running just off camera, in front of the trucks, spotting his buddy Jean Claude. What they don't show are the outtakes where Chuck had to race in and save him, once when one of the trucks ran over Steven Seagal just for the fun of it.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    They made the gag reel after the money shot- done in one take.

    She could probably take them all...



    Apparently... JCVD stunt was done in one take and the trucks were reversing to demonstrate their state of the art computer controls.
