Schwarzenegger gets hands on tank (for a good cause) - what would you crush?

Published: Monday, Mar. 24, 2014 - 3:53 pm

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has finished a fundraising campaign for his After-School All-Stars organization, which runs programs for almost 90,000 low-income youths across the country. He kicked it off with quite a video - he plows an M47 Patton tank through a taxi, 66 birthday cakes, bubble wrap and a giant Easter egg to the strains of “The Final Countdown.”

Watch the video:

The campaign brought in more than $500,000, which will be matched by Schwarzenegger. The winner is Alex Mihelick of Dallas, Texas, who will get an all-expenses paid trip to Los Angeles to crush a car and other things to be determined.
