Schwarzenegger + Villains + Explosions = Epic Super Bowl Ad

Editor's Pick

In this Super Bowl 50 commercial starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California takes on assorted foes in a grand hotel lobby that suddenly turns into a war zone. It's a scene worthy of, well, a Schwarzenegger action thriller, except this isn't a trailer for a Hollywood blockbuster -- it's another epic ad for Machine Zone's Mobile Strike, an iOS and Android milltary-strategy game. An operatic soundtrack, slow-motion fight sequences and twin explosions add to the sense of urgency leading up to a very familiar Austrian-accented voice-over that instructs us to "Download and play now!"

Schwarzenegger has been the frontman for Mobile Strike since the game's release in November.
