It’s not a Terminator, but this time an Elephant chases Schwarzenegger’s car

What happens in Johannesburg stays in Johannesburg—unless you’re Arnold Schwarzenegger and your safari vehicle gets chased by an elephant, in which case, yeah, the entire world is going to see that video. The clip, which Schwarzenegger uploaded himself to YouTube, shows exactly what transpired when the Terminator visited a wild animal park in South Africa on Tuesday. In the video, an elephant quietly loiters in front of what the San Francisco Chronicle calls an “open-air 4×4” containing Schwarzenegger and other spectators, then starts to back away, still warily facing the vehicle.

A voice that sounds like Arnold’s warns, “He’s gonna charge us,” but the elephant instead heads into the brush by the side of the road. Then, as the driver starts to cruise away from the scene, the pachyderm starts stomping after the vehicle. “I’m absolutely in awe of these beautiful, strong animals, even though some of us had to change our pants after this,” Schwarzenegger writes under the video. His reaction in the clip itself, though, is … classic Arnold. (
