If you’d told us a few weeks ago that our mood would be drastically improved by watching Arnold Schwarzenegger deliver a global pandemic warning while accompanied by his pet donkeys, we’d have laughed.

But now that all of these things are true, it doesn’t make this video any less funny.

The Terminatorstar is usually seen looking all muscular, armed with a weapon and gunning down the enemies crossing his path. But it's 2020 and the OG terminator himself wants you to stay home to fight the invisible, deadly enemy that is coronavirus (COVID-19) from the comfort of your couch.

Days after posting a "hand-washing tutorial" video and requesting his fans to listen to "scientists and experts", Schwarzenegger posted a home video in which he can be seen spending time at home, chilling with his adorable pets “Whiskey” and “Lulu”.

This is all completely real, look!

The former California governor (lol, we always forget about that) said:

We don't go out, we don't go to restaurants, we don't do anything like that anymore here.

See the one thing is, you stay at home. Because there is a curfew now, no one is allowed out. Especially someone who is 72 years old.

The actor also mentioned fact that old people and people with weak immune systems had higher chances of contracting the virus.

For some reason – and we’re really not sure how, to be honest – this video seemed to be exactly what we needed

We are living in very, very strange times.

Hasta la vista, donke​y.
