|Greetings from Chuck (The epic christmas split)|
|click image to open video page|
Chuck Norris brings Christmas greetings by reciting Shakespeare's Hamlet.
This animated video is a parody of the most epic split ever. You can watch it here: Van Damme's epic split.
"Some says that ever 'gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
The bird of dawning singeth all night long
And then, they say, no spirit can walk abroad;
The nights are wholesome; then no planets strike,
No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallowed and so gracious is the time."
So I brought to you that
Who can say where the road goes
Where the day flows, only time.
Merry Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you all.
Who can say why your heart sighs
The poem is from Shakespeare's play "Hamlet", scene 1, act 1, said by Marcellus talking to Horatio.
Then we have Chuck's on words: So I brought to you that
And they we have Enya's lyrics from the song "Only Time".
The whole composition is a Christmas greeting (a commercial) from a Hungarian animation studio to promote their services.
This animation is a parody of a Volvo's commercial in which Jean-Claude Van Damme makes an impressive sparragat impossible to beat. Well, impossible... until this digital Chuck Norris crossed the line here.
In the parody, Norris performs the splits in the same way Van Damme did, with arms crossed and a steely stare focused in front of him.
But Norris, it's revealed as the camera pans out, is doing the gymnastic act on a pair of airplanes. And he's doing it with a triangle of paratroopers balanced on his cowboy hatted head.
This is a translation of Shakespeare's words into modern English:
Some people say that just before Christmas the rooster crows all night long, so that no ghost dares go wandering, and the night is safe. The planets have no sway over us, fairies' spells don’t work, and witches can’t bewitch us. That’s how holy that night is.
