Why even pretend like we want to see Jean Claude Van Damme for any other reason besides recreating that creepy hug/kiss combo that we all saw at Affliction: Banned? How can I possibly describe what happened during that emotional exchange without being reported to the ACLU? It was the sort of affection a mother gives their son just before they’re boarding the school bus. Even that description pales in comparison to how truly strange the hand on Fedor’s face slowly moved down his chest as Jean Claude Van Damme maintained eye-contact.
According to the Urban Dictionary, the term ‘Jean Claude Van Damme’ can also be used as a personal modifier to ‘place emphasis on a certain observation about a person, usually oneself’. An example of this can be ‘Jean Claude Van DAMME, I look good tonight’. Alternatively, you can also use the term as in ‘that strange, bizarre and unexpected kiss between those two guys was Jean Claude Van DAMME!’. At least, that’s the only way I would use it when I’m not in a ‘Bloodsport’ or ‘Kickboxer’ conversation.
Oh, speaking of Kickboxer, GSP is going to star in a remake of the cult classic alongside Bautista according to the Hollywood Reporter. Hong Kong filmmaker Stephen Fung is signed to direct the film — he’s the same guy that made Tai Chi Zero and Tai Chi Hero. If you’ve never heard of those films, watch them, immediately.
Let’s hope we still get to see this dancing scene be remade, St. Pierre can easily pull off those moves.
