Some call it slick, others call it dad dancing (It's me. I'm others), but whatever you think of Jean-Claude Van Damme's moves, I can guarantee, you won't be able to stop watching.

The actor is the star of French duo AaRON's new music video for their song, Ultrarêve.

In the video, Jean-Claude is seen getting out of a car in an empty parking lot, before swaying his hips along to the music. The actor also incorporates some martial arts into his fancy footwork, and later is seen dancing on the beach.

According to Rolling Stone, Jean-Claude's daughter, Bianca Van Damme, directed the video, while his son, Kris Van Damme, took on the role of camera operator for the shoot.

"Jean-Claude came back to us to tell us how much this song meant to him," the publication quoted a statement from AaRON. It continued: "He offered to film the video himself in Los Angeles in an unprecedented setting, calling on his daughter Bianca to direct. The '(ultra) dream has become the (ultra) reality'."
