‘The Epic Split’ teaser video (below) shows Van Damme committing to performing a split with each foot atop the wing mirrors of two moving trucks.

The stunt is the latest to be attempted by the Volvo Trucks team which completed the ‘Ballerina Stunt’ last year which saw slackliner Faith Dickey cross a rope suspended between two moving trucks.

Earlier this year a hamster called Charlie became an internet sensation for Volvo Trucks when the animal became the world's-first truck-driving hamster.

Take a look at the new teaser and the other stunts below.
