If you've been on the Internet at all this past week, then you've probably seen an epic splits stunt performed by veteran action star Jean-Claude Van Damme where he performs the trademark legs spread maneuver between two moving Volvo semi-trucks moving in reverse. It's one of the most impressive things you'll ever seen. Well, not to be outdone, Channing Tatum decided to perform his own stunt as Jenko on the set of 22 Jump Street. It's a great, timely spoof, and it's also a first look at what Jenko looks like undercover in college. It seems like he's playing somewhat of a douchebag if he's wearing that Affliction shirt. Watch now!

Channing Tatum tweeted the stunt video saying, "This stunt was preformed by unprofessionals," so here:

22 Jump Street is directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, The LEGO Movie) and written by Michael Bacall (21 Jump Street, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) and Oren Uziel (Kitchen Sink). This time Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) find themselves undercover at a local college, but no details on the case have been revealed. Ice Cube also returns as the undercover unit's captain, and Sony Pictures releases the sequel on June 13th 2014 next summer. Cool?

Even JCVD is a a better actor than old c tates! Hell a cardboard cut out of JCVD is a better actor than c tates.

I said the same thing, but that was before 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike. He's gotten much better in the past couple years.

I have no idea why many critics were singing the praises of 21 Jump Street - it was terrible. Real critics have pretty much gone extinct and they have been replaced by cheap internet versions that are little more than fanboys that act as shills for the movie studios. All the studios have to do is give these clowns some free schwag and they'll laud even the most terrible of films.
