Funny or Die just announced a new video contest involving your favorite action star, called “Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Make My Movie Challenge.” Using green screen footage in which Van Damme performs typical action movie stunts, contestants have until midnight on March 3rd to upload videos they create by re-editing and cutting the clips.
“We realized it was unfeasible to physically send Jean-Claude Van Damme to everyone who wanted to make a movie,” explained Funny or Die’s Andrew Kramer.
In spite of the sarcastic tone, the competition itself is serious enough to promise real prizes. Creators of the 3–5 best videos can expect to win goodies like a 1-year membership to Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, classic Van Damme movies signed by the actor himself, an iPad Mini, signed “Welcome to the Jungle” posters, and more.
Funny or Die will release winning videos on their website “as part of a larger Jean-Claude Van Damme site takeover.” Winners will also have their videos promoted on Funny or Die’s social media channels.
This competition should generate some super outlandish videos, so remember to check back for Van Damme action footage on Funny or Die in March.
