Volvo Trucks’ commercial featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme doing the splits between two reversing trucks on the highway has amassed an impressive 52 million views in just two weeks. On the World Wide Web, that’s just an invitation for various viral spinoffs. So, let me introduce you to Jewbellish’s new video, a Thanksgivukkah parody showcasing grocery carts instead of 18-wheelers.

As we all know by now, Thanksgivukkah will not occur again until the year 79,811. In this ‘Epic Split’ parody, the narrator, a 27-year old “with a body my bubbie calls crafted to perfection,” balances on two shopping carts reversing slowly through the aisles of a grocery store.

One grocery cart is filled with Hanukkah items, including a large menorah, while the other cart is jam-packed with Thanksgiving meal ingredients. Our kippah-wearing protagonist discusses the importance of this holiday convergence, until an unexpected tragedy occurs… Watch below. And check out the original JCVD commercial directly underneath.
