Schwarzenegger Trilogy

There are those that like to depict the former Governor of California, one Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, as nothing but a monosyllabic one trick pony.

These people are fools. Not only is he a politician and a terrific thespian, but among the other strings to his bountiful bow he can list bodybuilder, model, director and businessman.

And to that already impressive resume, he can now add hip hop icon. Los Angeles-based creative collective Brainbowinc have constructed not one, not two, but three animated clips dedicated to the genius of Arnie.

The first, ‘5, 4, 3, 2…’, takes cuts – mainly explosions - from his films and renders them as punchy beats; the second, Galleria, is a cracking scene from Terminator 2, while the third, ‘come on… get down’, sees the great man himself reimagined as a streetwise rapper.

The animations are obviously a labour of love: all are hand-drawn 1600 frames cell animation with Highlighters used to add colour. The end result is fantastic and a testament to Schwarzenegger’s undoubted versatility.

Bow down, people. Bow down...
