A Match Made in Celebrity Heaven: Jean Claude Van Damme and 777 Collaboration Confirmed
Action hero and all-around legend Jean Claude Van Damme dominated the screens with pure grit and muscle during the 80s and early 90s. The Belgian star is most well – known for movies such as Bloodsport, Kickboxer, Lionheart, Death Warrant and Double Impact. These are movies that many of us grew up watching. And then came JCVD in 2008, which many considered one of his best movies. Today, the gifted marital artist may be 61 years old, but is still in great shape and is still looking to strike deals. Most recently, he has teamed up with Belgian online gaming operators 777 for an ad campaign.
In an effort to promote the 777 brand, Van Damme has been chosen as the face for the brands next set of adverts. The partnership between the Belgian actor and the Belgian operator originated in 2019, but had to take a back seat due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The ads were eventually recorded in January 2022 and are expected to go live in the upcoming days or weeks. There are two ads expected, the first one is focused on 777’s online casino platform and the other is premised around the 777 online sportsbook. The operator says that both ads will incorporate Van Damme in the way that we all know and love him, in this true element – action and martial arts.
His Hollywood days may be over, but the “muscles from Brussels” hasn’t let that stop him from shooting ads, making money and still remaining in the public eye. Many of his die-hard fans eagerly await the release of the ad which is rumored to be a lengthy video that can almost be classified as a short film that pays homage to many of Van Damme’s biggest hit movies and scenes.
The other ad is said to be focused around the importance of responsible gambling. The word around town is that both ads are fun, light-hearted and portray Van Damme as his signature, on-screen self. Given his popularity, the collaboration could prove to be highly effective for 777. Responsible gambling is all the rage these days and 777 have found the perfect person and moment in time to resonate the message. 777 made a statement saying 777.be is focused around finding the right balance between fun and gambling responsibly.
Van Damme first shot to fame when he starred in the hit 1988 movie called Bloodsport. Even today, this film is considered one of the corner stones for inspiring and developing martial artists across America and other parts of the globe.
