And John Claude van Damme used deliver pizza. Hey, can I just say? Whoever came up with the idea. To have JEAN CLAUDE van Damme in these tostitos commercials. Should be given a promotion and a raise. 'cause those commercials are awesome. John called like the la- somebody in a meeting going. We need we need a spokesperson for tostitos. And some dude just goes about John Claude van Damme. No, man. Are you an idiot? Why because he's John Claude van Damme. I wonder if he delivered the pizzas doing the splits. Did you know that do, you know, the story of how John Claude van Damme got his first movie? Now, he he he walked into Golden Globes. His office, of course, going Globus cannon films. Responsible for some of the worst movies of all time be movies and action movies and horror, movies and stuff. The you know, if you saw the canon logo, but for a while, though, they were doing some interesting stuff there are actually distributing foreign movies and doing some anyway. So van Damme comes in, and he you know, he comes into the into. I don't know if it was Menachem Golan's officer a Representative or something he comes in. He walks in. He's got a bag with him.

And so they're like why he's as well because of this. So it takes two chairs. Okay. And he separates them. And then he puts one leg on one chair one leg on the chair. And then he does the splits in bounces up and down between the chairs doing the splits. And then he takes a brick out of the bag brought in and smashes it over his head. And he got a contract. They were like, okay, we'll do bloodsport and then bloodsport turn out to be one of the greatest movies ever made. But that's how van Damme. God it maybe he went into the office of toast Tito's. And when you should make a commercial with me Zhong Vandamme why because of this and then he did the splits while eating tostitos. That's probably that's what I picture.
