Hey, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Channing Tatum Can Do an Epic Split, Too! (Sort of)

Channing Tatum as Jenko

By now you might have seen Jean-Claude Van Damme’s epic split for a Volvo commercial. Well, we’re told it’s for a Volvo commercial, but let’s face it, who the hell cares. It’s Van Damme straddling two trucks as they pull apart. It’s as epic as you’ll ever find, and if it’s actually the real thing (and honestly, in today’s CGI world, who the heck knows), then it’s even more epically … epic.

Channing Tatum has something to say about that, though. In character as Jenko from the set of “22 Jump Street” (way to be creative with the title, guys), Tatum as Jenko offers up his own version of the epic Van Damme split.
