Escape Plan disappointed at the box office, but Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t let that stop him. In a bold move to capture the nostalgia vote – and a shameless bid to reset the current standings in the Stallone/Schwarznegger eternal rivalry – Schwarzenegger took to Reddit and took requests from internet citizens, promising to recite some of his most memorable lines.
In the resulting videos, Schwarzenegger quotes himself from Conan, Kindergarten Cop, Predator, and more. Making the whole thing more surreal, the background keeps on shifting. Sometimes, he appears to be on a golf course; then he’ll be inside a trailer; by the final video, he appears to be on a private jet. Just a typical day for a typical bodybuilder/Hollywood action star/governor/memoirist. IMHO, the Running Man video is the best. Check them out below, and keep an eye out for more – Schwarzenegger closed out the Reddit board with the teasing note, “I think I should come back Monday… because I missed some great ones.”
