Arnold Schwarzenegger likes to blow stuff up, and now a lucky winner is going to get the chance to blow stuff up with him, all for a good cause.
Last week the “Terminator: Genisys” star released a video of himself blowing things up, including a closet, a movie marquee, and something near and dear to his neighbor, “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet.
“I blew up my neighbor’s car. Eric Stonestreet,” Schwarzenegger told FOX411. “He was very upset, he was so angry. He is not going to invite me to his Fourth of July bar-b-que, which is hitting below the belt.”
Luckily, Stonestreet was in on the stunt, as its part of a contest where a lucky fan and a friend get an all-expense paid day to spend with Schwarzenegger doing, what else: blowing stuff up.
“When the winner comes out, we’ll have breakfast, and drive tanks, and blow things up,” Schwarzenegger explained. “We blow up cars, boats – just stuff that makes you laugh.”
The California governor is partnering for a second time with the charity fundraising platform Omaze to benefit After-School All-Stars (ASAS) – a not-for-profit providing after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life.
“It’s been a passion of mine,” Schwarzenegger said. “While the parents are working, five days a week – they (ASAS) offer homework assistance, tutoring, and help with learning a second language.”
Schwarzenegger said the program is important because it keeps at-risk kids off the streets and focused on school. “For every dollar you spend, you save $5 down the line,” he explained.
And the Governator is putting his money where his mouth is. “We have a poker tournament at my house where we raise a million dollars,” he added. “Last year it was very successful, and then we crushed things with a tank.”
For Schwarzenegger, it’s just all part of giving back to his adopted country.
“I’m proud to be Austrian born, but made in America,” he said. “I’m proud to be part of the greatest, most generous, most powerful country in the world.”
He's also proud of blowing things up. Watch below.
