Arnold Schwarzenegger plays BMW’s divine charging station

What do BMW, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Zeus, the father of the Greek gods, have in common? It could be many things, but in this case it’s the car manufacturer’s new commercial. With this, they want to present electric cars on the Super Bowl weekend, which – according to the tenor – make even the gods happy.

Terminator becomes Zeus: BMW turns Schwarzenegger into a charging station for electric cars
