Ever wanted to hear Arnold Schwarzenegger’s autobiography in rap form? Probably not, but like me it’s likely you’re going to watch this video out of morbid curiosity. Oh you poor fool.
Don’t worry, I’m going to save you the time and effort that you would spend googling this video and just link it down below but first, I have to say some stuff. I think that this is an important thing to watch, even if it’s just so you know that this level of cringe can be distilled in one short(ish) video.
Now, in order to write this I had to watch the video and as soon as I saw the thumbnail I knew I was in for a wild ride. So I did the most natural thing: I made my partner endure it too. We are by no means musical experts but, in all fairness, I don’t believe Arnold is either. I’m just going to drop some quotes from my partner in here:
“Yikes, that’s cringe culture.”
And even more scathing criticism:
“It doesn’t slap and it doesn’t bop and it’s nowhere near a banger.”
Despite this damning feedback from definitely not one of music’s most prominent critics, the song does have a decent message: “follow your dreams”. Good stuff. Still, I can’t do the thing justice by simply telling you it’s cursed, you have to experience that for yourself. Here. I’m sorry.
If you made it through that, congratulations! Now you know what it’s like to see Arnold Schwarzenegger and another guy talk about how well he did and laugh and then keep on laughing. Wondering who that other guy is? That’s none other than Andreas Gabalier, a folk singer who’s big in Austria apparently. Wonder no more.
Anyway that’s all I have to say about that one. If you’re still hungry for more Arnold, check this out.
