Arnold Schwarzenegger voices Waze as the Terminator

Arnold Schwarzenegger voices Waze

?I?m a Terminator Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, and you?re coming with me.?

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been recording lots of Terminator dialogue for community-based traffic and navigation app Waze. That?s right, you can have a Terminator giving you traffic directions.

Waze formed a partnership with Paramount Studios that helps in the battle against competitors such as Google Maps and Navigon. Waze has skyrocketed in growth from 15 million users in 2012 to its current 50 million.

Schwarzenegger required a one-hour recording session to provide the automated prompts for Waze ? everything from routine commands such as ?turn left? to lines such as ?Hasta la vista, Baby? at the end of the journey. The Terminator feature will last through mid-July.

?It is an added entertainment. Where I come in, I?m bringing the Arnold twist,? Schwarzenegger said. ?Even in the recording studio, people were laughing at every single line when I put the Arnold spin on it.?

?Here we are 40 years later and my accent is a big asset. It?s what people enjoy,? Schwarzenegger said. ?When I dreamt of a career, I had no idea that one day I would be telling 50 million drivers (where) to drive.?

?Only in America,? he added with a laugh.

Terminator Genisys hits cinemas at the beginning of July.
