Jean-Claude Van Damme: Kickboxer dance scene recreated on Conan

Posted on

Jean-Claude Van Damme didn’t do any epic splits during his Monday night appearance on Conan, but he did manage to produce another viral moment for host Conan O’Brien. With very little coaxing, Van Damme recreated his dancing fight scene from the 1989 film Kickboxer.

O’Brien didn’t leave Van Damme out there on his own, however, providing a few extras to challenge the star to a fight while he was trying to get his groove back. 

And while Van Damme may not be able to perfectly redo the scene, his impressive skils are probably a good sign: the actor implies in the interview that another Kickboxer is closer tor reality than one might have thought.
