    Arnold Schwarzenegger Has One Very Familiar Piece Of Advice To Give After Getting The COVID-19 Vaccine

    "I have never been happier to wait in a line."

    You know Arnold Schwarzenegger from so many things — including this incredible photo where he's straight chilling with a dog and a cigar.

    Arnold is a tough guy who pretty much does what he wants at this point — and today, the Governator wanted a COVID-19 vaccine. So he filmed himself getting one and posted it on Instagram.

    In the video, Arnold gets the shot at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles, joking with the technician administering the vaccine to "Put the needle down!" — semi-quoting a line from the holiday classic Jingle All the Way.

    "All right, I just got my vaccine, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone," he addressed the camera after all was said and done — then, he unleashed another iconic movie quote, this time from Terminator 2: Judgment Day: "Come with me if you want to live."

    In the post's caption, he continued: "Today was a good day. I have never been happier to wait in a line. If you're eligible, join me and sign up to get your vaccine."

    Schwarzenegger also revealed on Twitter that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti personally checked in the former Governor of California at the vaccination site.

    Thanks for checking me in at @Dodgers Stadium, @MayorOfLA! What a crazy surprise.

    This isn't the only time recently that Schwarzenegger's hopped online to impart some wise words. He also posted a powerful video about the Capitol riots a few weeks back.
