Despite what anyone may tell you to the contrary, the best thing about the internet is its ability to make people laugh. Some may argue its ability to make us smarter is where it shines. Nah. Some may say all the information that is available to us at our fingertips is what makes it so cool. Nope. Funny stuff wins. Kitten pics and videos like this. In this case, someone took some rather awkward footage of Jean Claude Van Damme from the movie Bloodsport and edited it into an old-school Mentos commercial.
