Watch Channing Tatum take on Jean-Claude Van Damme's epic split

Just a tiny bit less epic. Still awesome.

IN THE LATEST AD FOR Volvo Trucks, Jean-Claude Van Damme bewitched the world with his superhuman “epic split”(aided in no small part by a haunting Enya soundtrack.)

The ad has been viewed over 33 million times since it was uploaded last week, and spawned a number of parodies.

Here’s Channing Tatum deciding to have a go at it on the set of 22 Jump Street, with interesting results.
