Russia’s Answer to Van Damme’s Volvo Epic Split [LOL]

Russia’s Answer to Van Damme’s Volvo Epic Split 1 photo
It appears that the Russian dash cam culture has now extended to aircrafts and we have the first image captured by one of this cameras. The pic shows Vladimir Putin taking Van Damme’s Volvo Epic Split stunt to a whole new level.

The twisted mind of the Internet has digitally manipulated Putin on top of two MIG fighter planes. Since we are only treated with an image, it may be possible for a video to follow.

Of course, this is not exactly likely, since the video editing for such a prank would probably take more time to make that the original Volvo commercial - those of you who have ventured into the world of computer-generated imagery know what we are talking about.

Not that it would be all that hard to convince Putin to attempt such a stunt. After all, the Russian president does enjoy showing off. We need look no further than his bare-chested horse rides or his butterfly swimming pose to understand that part of his personality.

Perhaps the Russian president is preparing to counteract Van Damme’s stunt with the help of Steven Segal, whom he recently collaborated on re-introducing a physical culture training program to the country.

The two have reportedly become close friends based on their mutual passion for martial arts.

The first time I went to his home, I walked in and saw a life-sized statue of Kanō Jigorō, who is the founder of judo, so I was immediately taken and impressed and sort of really wanting to get to know this man deeper and deeper,” Steven Segal told Russian news channel RT when asked about his relationship with Putin. In fact, the two had met one decade earlier, at the 25th edition of the Moscow International Film Festival.

By the way, here's the original Volvo commercial once again, so you easily where things started:
