"Terminator" star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has made a living off playing an over-the-top tough guy. But the 72-year-old actor is shedding his image to warn people, especially those in his age group, to "stay at home" during the Coronavirus crisis.
Arnold is a master of publicity, so he enlisted the help of his darling miniature horse, Whisky and donkey, Lulu, to get the word out.
The result is an incredibly cute viral video that spreads the perfect message.
Stay at home as much as possible. Listen to the experts, ignore the morons (foreheads). We will get through this together. pic.twitter.com/FRg41QehuB

"See, the important thing is you stay at home," Schwarzenegger said while feeding carrots to his equine friends, "because there is a curfew now.
"Nobody is allowed out, especially someone that is like 72 years old. After you're 65, you're not allowed out of the house anymore in California," he continued, "So we eat at home."
"No more restaurants, OK?" he said in his video, petting his friends. "Forget all that. Public gatherings, restaurants and all this, gymnasiums, out the window. We stay at home. Hey Whiskey? Huh?"
