If there’s one thing that I’ll never understand, it’s how Arnold Schwarzenegger got elected to a higher office. An office that an Ebay executive couldn’t get into, even after spending hundreds of millions of dollars. In a state that’s nearly broke.
How did it happen? Does he have some sort of magical power over the voters who’ve seen him groan and scream through a series of dozens of films? Is he possessing of a charismatic, magnetic personality that people can’t disassociate from?
No. Arnold has the best scream in movie history. By far. And some lucky bastard has managed to cut together seven whole minutes of him rolling around, screaming, assaulting people, breathing heavy, assaulting more people, then put it on the internets for all of our mutual enjoyment. And wouldn’t you know, it’s gone viral. Anything with Arnold in it goes viral, be he smoking a joint, talking about constantly jizzing on things, or shaking people’s hands and appearing on Conan.
Seven whole minutes. Of Arnold screaming. You really can’t ask for a better present than that. Can you? I mean, it’s not Christmas, but a man with giant traps flailing for his life is pretty much a universal present. So enjoy it.
