Very cool Pilou!
I wonder why they're going in reverse?

"""""I wonder why they're going in reverse?"""""""""""

Because steering a tractor trailer rig in reverse is inherently less accurate. The video is to demonstrate Volvo's new steering system. Although I'm sure Jean Claude is not really standing there....

Did you really ask, or did I bite?

Hi Burr,

> Did you really ask, or did I bite?

Yeah, Yeah I was genuinely curious, thanks :)
As for 'is it real?' these days with the advance of CGI and image editing software I take these things with a grain of salt.

Watching his legs stretch and become out of scale really gives it away though Danny

You guys make me laugh. There is a MUCH simpler old school solution to creating this ad. Run the film backwards! ;)

Nope, he was really there, although there's a safety line to catch him if he fell. (That was probably painted out using CGI.) And there's a ledge for each foot to rest on. The rest is a real stunt.

http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2013/11/15/how-volvo-created-the-jean-claude-van-damme-video/

“The stunt is real and is performed in just one take,” said Anders Vilhelmsson, public relations manager for the Volvo Trucks brand. “It’s a daring stunt but we had full control. There was never any real danger involved.”

Van Damme, 53, was hooked to safety lines that aren’t visible in the film, and each foot is on a small platform that was built on the trucks’ side mirrors."

Vandamme it's a brand of cake; and Volvo trucks have a reverse gear. Wow! is-it in option?
I hope that Enya earns big royalties on this rear running gag. Pub (Advertising, push, plug) is mess (to stay well-bred).
