Are you kidding?

Chuck Norris once strangled a guy with a cordless phone.

Chuck Norris doesnt wear a watch. He decides what time it is.

Chuck Norris can refer to himself in the fourth person.

Chuck Norris CAN believe it's not butter.

I'm not a fan of the guy .. he can't act and he's seriously crude ... but for a 53 year old he's in great shape. I'm sure that commerical will get lots of play and lots of $$ ...

Van Damme is your hero because he can spread his legs abnormally?

Morning,

Van Damme...Chuck Norris...those aren't heroes.
They're celebrities.

A hero is the father or mother who works three jobs to put food on the table for their family.
A hero is the one who stands for the freedom & rights of others at great personal expense, like Snowdon.
A hero is the person follows the truth where ever it leads when everyone else says they shouldn't.
A hero isn't someone who goes around telling everyone how great they are when nobody wants to hear it.
But maybe that's just me.
I'd even go out of my way not to buy their truck if that's the commercial selling it.

-Peace-

(Addendum: Okay...so it's not just me.)

Quite a reasonable and logical question I thought. Never mind the feat of being able to reverse with a trailer that long that straight, or even Van Damme`s physical abilities. I would like to know why spreading ones legs makes you a hero? Would that be the Paris Hilton effect?

Man If I could do that I would just hop about on one leg for half the day and then do my other leg

The guy is in awesome shape for sure.

BUT, he is just a ballet dancer from Belgium who got into action movies while Chuck Norris
is an 8th Degree Black Belt Grand Master and a brown belt in Brazilian Jujitsu.

Mr. Norris is a real deal and Mr. Van Damme is a movie star.

Salut,

The only detail about JCVD I ever thought was facinating was that he was the original Yuatja from the Predator movie. I can remember hearing that rumor back in '90 but only saw a photo of him in the original stilted Predator costume a few weeks ago.
(If I knew how to post a pic here I would throw it up.)
It doesn't look anything like the final movie creature we are used to seeing.
Word is that the script had something added or included a scene where JCVD (in full costume with stilts) was to perform a flip. Jean told 'em in no uncertain terms that it was a stupid idea and anyone who tried it would break their leg.
Well someone at the studio didn't like that at all and tossed JCVD to the curb faster than you can say "no parking validation" and hired a new creature-actor who would do as he was told.
Time came and the gag (old biz term for stunt) went off exactly as JCVD said it would. The creature-actor broke his leg on the first take and was hospitalized for his injury.
The Yuatja then became the humanoid (non-stilted) version we saw in the movie...and it's a good thing too because the original beastie looked stupid and not just because it was b&w set stills.
I wish I still had the link...I may have muddled a few details but that was the gist of it.
That's my only good JCVD story and it's technically still a tragedy.
Trouble is I have scores of bad ones about him so...

-Peace-

Don't be absurd. It's because ittakes two God damn semi trailers to open his legs.

There are only two threads so that JCVD can do the splits across them!

For those who somehow think this video means he is better than Chuck Norris. He is not...

Chuck Norris?
He's so old his bladder only holds for five minutes at a time.
Half of any movie budget he's in is spent on Depends.
Easy way to beat Chuck Norris?
Just take a glass of water and pour it out slowly as you square off against Walker Texas Ranger...within a minute, he'll be hobbling to the bathroom.
Then all you need do is push the porta-potty over and run.

-Peace-
