>>> volvo says the new web ad for a line of trucks is absolutely real and was recorded in one take. that's probably a good thing for the actor jean claude van damme , taking nothing away from a heck of a split he performs here. we have since learned there were safety cables in place to prevent parts of mr. van damme from being scattered on the highway had something gone terribly wrong.
