Arnold Schwarzenegger Crushes Taxi With Tank

Arnold Schwarzenegger has invited fans to fly to Los Angeles to ride in a tank and "crush things" with him.

The former California governor has posted a video on YouTube showing him driving the M47Patton tank over a taxi cab, piano and weight bench.

His wrecking spree aims to raise awareness of the American After-School All-Stars programme, which provides extra learning opportunities for children.

Set to the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This, the video opens with Schwarzenegger saying: "After hard work, labouring and slaving away, I finally have achieved my lifelong dream ... to finally possess my own ****ing tank!"

Bubble wrap, barrels and 66 birthday cakes - one for every one of his birthdays - all fall victim to the tank's tracks.

"I'm going to crush a copy of Million Dollar Baby because it makes me cry," he says as Europe's The Final Countdown plays. "Ha ha I don't cry."

He then asks viewers to donate to the programme.

Fans can enter a competition to ride with Schwarzenegger in his tank.

The winners will "crush something together, work out together, smoke cigars together" and "live like Arnold for a day", according to the Omaze website.

The site offers "once-in-a-lifetime experiences that also support social missions".

"What are you waiting for? Come to Los Angeles, let's go around and crush things with a tank," Schwarzeneggeradded.
