Action star Jean-Claude Van Damme must not be human. He can’t be! Is this for real?

The 53-year-old proclaims in the video, which is a Volvo ad featuring Enya, “Now I stand here before you, what you see is a body crafted to perfection.”

Just in case you’re wondering if this was done with the help of green-screens or other trickery, the people behind it claim that it’s all real! At least that’s what Samanta Guthrie said a few minutes ago on The Today Show.

This ad doesn’t make me want to buy a Volvo truck, it makes me hate myself for being an inferior human.

Here’s some footage of Van Damme doing the splits in 1994’s Timecop:
