Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to prank some Gold’s Gym members in Venice Beach recently by disguising himself as a personal trainer and regional manager named Howard.
Schwarzenegger explained that the prank was for a good cause: to raise awareness and money for After-School All-Stars, a national organization that provides tutoring and other after-school programs for students from low-income families.
Anyone who donates at least $10 to the organization will be entered for a chance to win a trip to Los Angeles to hang with Arnold for a day — riding in his tank, working out and smoking cigars.
His plan is working. The hilarious video, which shows “Howard” offering tips to gym members, already has nearly 850,000 hits on YouTube since being posted yesterday.
