Chuck Norris does own 'epic splits' between two airplanes, because he's Chuck Norris -- VIDEO


You think Jean-Claude Van Damme’s epic splits between two gargantuan Volvo trucks was a feat of physical prowess? Or Channing Tatum’s spoof was milk-out-of-your-nose funny? Well, Chuck Norris has the strength and charisma to obliterate both versions with his own epic splits because [insert your circa-2005 Chuck Norris fact here].

In the Chuck Norris version — which or may not have actually involved Mr. Norris — we see the Texas Ranger performing the splits between two airplane wings, carrying a fleet of men on both shoulders, who are also arranged into a lighted Christmas tree, because, like, holidays and terminal velocity and aerodynamics and stuff.

The parody vid was created by Delov Digital, a Hungarian creative agency.

Chuck Norris: 'Our great country and freedom are under attack' -- VIDEO

Chuck Norris loves freedom more than you.

He loves it so much, in fact, that he’s appearing in his own political ad, alongside his wife, Gena. The commercial features the couple calling on their “evangelical brothers and sisters” to get to the voting booths this November. The couple name-check Edmund Burke and Ronald Reagan, and urge freedom-loving Americans to get to the polls to thwart “socialism — or something much worse.” Dun dun duuuun.

The ad doesn’t specifically endorse Mitt Romney by name (and Norris himself threw his support behind Newt Gingrich in February), but it’s obvious what Norris wants anyone not wanting a roundhouse kick to the face to do. Gena tells viewers, “It is estimated that in the 2008 election, 30 million evangelical Christians stayed home on voting day and Obama won the election by 10 million votes.”

Cory Booker: Newark's mayor earns real-life superhero status, memes aplenty

This week may have started out tough for Newark mayor Cory Booker, who faced complaints about the cost of police overtime for Whitney Houston’s funeral, but it ended with a “BANG! THWAP! POW!” That’s right, after rescuing a neighbor from a burning building, Booker has joined the likes of Ryan Gosling, Chuck Norris, Sean Penn, Mark Wahlberg (at least in his own head), and Seattle’s Phoenix Jones in garnering real-life superhero status — and his own meme!

Chuck Norris, Ashton Kutcher: Now renaming a landmark near you (if you live in England or Slovakia)

Move over, Columbus, Ohio! Move over founder of the New World! You’ve both been replaced by newer, younger models. Reviving the global tradition of celebrity naming for a new generation, Ashton Kutcher and Chuck Norris (did you ever think you’d see those two in a sentence together?) have both been honored recently as towns and/or monuments are now bearing their name.

Four U.K. towns were recently re-named in honor of the Two and a Half Men star — Ashton Hayes in Cheshire County; Ashton Under Hill, Worcestershire; Ashton, South Northamptonshire; and Ashton Keynes, Wiltshire. According to ThisIsWiltshire.co.uk, Ashton Keynes residents spotted flower beds spelling out the newly shorn star’s name and a bronzed bust of Kutcher glitzing up a local store. Then they noticed their beloved White Hart Inn had been redubbed the Ashton Kutcher Arms, which began serving frothy (if a bit tepid) Ashton Kutcher Ale. READ FULL STORY
