Hilarious Arnold Clip

My friend just showed this to me and I almost crapped my pants laughing.

You have to watch it till the very end.

What was it? A movie or something?

This is from 70’s Cop show “Streets of San Francisco”(Where Michael Douglas got his start). Arnold is cast as a psychotic killer with anger problems and a nacissistic obsession. Later in the show is a faux contest with top BB’s of the time acting as no-names, including Franco, Zane, & Robinson…I mentioned this in another thread regarding how bodybuilding was NOT really accepted then (disproving the nostalgia crowd), and this episode of “Streets” proves my point!. Notice that the girl called him a “Body Freak”, putting him on the same level with cultists common at the time, like Hippies and “Jesus Freaks” (Vince Gironda was not known as the “iron guru” by accident)…

In this episode (Cleverly named “Dead Lift”) bodybuilders are viciously jeered, laughed at, insulted, inferred to be homos, etc; reflecting the true general attitude of society at that time. Arnold was just starting out and had yet to influence the “fitness revolution” we would see emerge in the 80’s…Anyone who thinks BB was “better” back then needs to see this entire episode for a wake up call!..I see that these will soon be coming out on DVD, along with the original Robert Stack “Untouchables”…

OMG that is hilarious! That accent and overreacting! You know the real Arnold was way too secure in himself to ever be offended at someone laughing at him.

Does anyone else find that lady incredibly attractive?

That was a scream. This is anything but…

Oh yeah, that woman interviewing him was a knockout. Even if he’d killed her then, I’d tap that. Now. 30 years later.

“STOP THAT I’M NOT UGLY I’M BEAUTIFUL!”

That was too goddamn funny…

I just woke up my whole house laughing at that.

I want to see the whole episode now.

Agreed. That didn’t seem very funny at all. His acting sucked and whoever wrote that shit hopefully got fired the next day.

Aww…Poor Arnold. Up until the poorly written freak-out assault that could have gone somewhere that was semi-acceptable.

They knew about roid rage in the 70’s?

i was somewhat concerned there that it was gonna end up being a porn…

lol it was kind of funny… in a non-attached way.

Water please.
