Chuck Norris went one step above Jean Claude Van Damme's "epic split" with a new stunt entitled "Epic Christmas Split" on Thursday.

Both Norris and Van Damme are trained in martial arts as well as actors, and clearly, both have an abundant sense of humor.

Last month, Van Damme released a gravity-defying video for Volvo that featured the actor in a full split position between two moving trucks. The post immediately went viral on the internet.

In response, Norris parodied the video with an even more incredible feat- in split position between two moving airplanes, all with 11 service men balanced on his head in the shape of a Christmas tree!

"Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" appears above the aerial stunt. Watch it above.

While the clip is clearly the product of digital animation, Norris fans are flooding Twitter with comments about it.

"What!? That Chuck Norris clip is faker than Santa," wrote Johnson.

Larry posted, "Our number one video, Chuck Norris' Christmas split is one of a kind."

"Chuck Norris doesn't need planes to fly," quipped Terry.

The "Walker, Texas Ranger" star is not the only actor to have mocked Van Damme's "epic split." Channing Tatum and Rob Ford both posted their own versions earlier this month.

Van Damme's video took place before a sunset and was set to music by Enya.

"I've had my ups and downs, my fair share of bumpy roads and heavy winds, that's what made me what I am today," the actor narrates in the ad. "Now, I stand here before you. What you see is a body crafted to perfection; a pair of legs engineered to defy the laws of physics and the mindset to master the most epic of splits."

The camera pans down to reveal the 53-year-old actor righting the headlights of two massive vehicles with his arms serenely crossed as the trucks veer further and further apart. By the end of the clip, Van Damme's legs are perfectly horizontal.
