An Animated Chuck Norris Says "Merry Christmas" with a Next-Level "Epic Split"

The actor tops Jean-Claude Van Damme's stunt while wishing everyone happy holidays

Sorry, Channing Tatum -- Chuck Norris is now officially the king of parodying Jean-Claude Van Damme's epic split!

In this funny new video created by Hungarian animation firm Delov Digital, an animated Norris has each foot placed on the wings of two seperate airplanes -- already in flight, of course. As a verse from "Hamlet" is spoken in narration, the planes begin to seperate -- just like the Volvo trucks in Van Damme's stunt and the food carts in Tatum's parody.

But, there's a twist!

As the camera zooms out, you can see not one or two, but 11 servicemen are balancing on top of Norris' head. And they're standing in the formation of a Christmas tree! The silly video ends with the message, "Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!"

Van Damme's commerical has definitely left an impression on people.  Can we expect a version in honor of Kwanzaa next?
