Arnold Schwarzenegger’s disturbing ’80s Japanese energy drink commercials

It’s fairly common knowledge that many celebrities endorse products outside of the United States, in order to sell out without diluting whatever respectability they’ve obtained in Hollywood. The commercials themselves are endlessly bizarre and disorienting, like celebrity culture on psychedelics.

For example, just check out this footage of some of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s energy drink commercials, filmed in Japan in the ’80s. They mostly involve him screaming, possibly so he wouldn’t have to learn too much Japanese, but also probably because he was so cranked out of his mind on free energy drinks. They simultaneously don’t make any sense and make too much sense, the idea of celebrity taken to its logical, absurd conclusion.
