NY PostDon’t cross Bianca Van Damme.

With her wide-set eyes and pouty lips, she looks like pinup perfection…and then she leaps into a perfect roundhouse kick.

“I want to show little girls and little boys that you can be physical and feminine. That you can cross your legs at the dinner table and then kick ass in a nice, feminine way,” says the 25-year-old West Village resident. “Kind of like how my father brought martial arts to the mainstream for my generation — I want to continue that legacy.” 

I appreciate the Post delivering this little tidbit like it’s actual breaking news. But it’s simply not. The notion that Jean-Claude Van Damme’s daughter would be a total hottie with drop-dead looks to match her drop-dead roundhouse kicks is the least newsworthy event in the history of the human race.

Of course Bianca is a badass. What else could any of us expect with half her DNA coming from the man who gave the world “Kickboxer,” “Bloodsport” and “Double Impact”? If JCVD blows his nose, the snot in the Kleenex will become sentient, take human form and become an 8th-degree black belt. Remove his appendix and it will win a gold medal in Judo at the next Olympics. His bowel movements could form their own ninja assassin squad.

So let’s not act like we’d expect anything less than Bianca a complete knockout, in and out of the dojo. The real story here is why she hasn’t already gotten started making cheesy, poorly acted martial arts movies. Get off your asses, Hollywood, and make it happen.

I know I probably shouldn’t allow myself to get manipulated by companies into posting their ads as content. Corporations are doing these sorts of viral marketing campaigns all the time now to use blogs and social media sites to further their agenda without compensating them for it. And I should know better than to fall for it.

But with an ad is as slick as this one, what’s a blogger to do? When a mattress company puts Tom Brady in a commercial that is this damned sexy, to not blog it would be dereliction of duty. This is too hot to ignore, just to stand on some stupid principle.

So well done, Beautyrest. Let this be a lesson to all other advertisers everywhere. If you want to reach the masses and get them to buy your product, hire Tom Brady to look as good as he ever has and give viewers the subliminal suggestion they might be breaking in that mattress with him.

“Will you be needing anything else?” Yes. A shower and a long nap.

To reasons known only to Jets wide out Eric Decker and the voices from deep inside the recesses of his brain, this is what he chose to Tweet out Sunday.

I ask the obvious question: What the holy hell is this thing? I mean, where does one even begin to deconstruct this? Even for a little kids video, this thing is bizarre. If you showed it to some toddler as an educational aid, it would definitely help with his verbal skills because he’d learn to say “I’m begging you to turn off this piece of garbage.”

And yet a Jets wide receiver just randomly chose to send this out to his 328.000 Twitter followers with no explanation. While Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola are establishing themselves as the best comedy duo since Will Farrell and John C. Reilly, their counterpart on the Jets is randomly posting the kind of video a scary clown would make you watch on repeat as he tortures you to death. This is just another of the hundreds of thousands of reasons why the Patriots will never lose the AFC East ever again.
