Arnold Schwarzenegger will save the day and navigate you to your next destination thanks to a new collaboration between Hollywood and Waze. To celebrate the release of the Terminator Genisys film, Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Waze teamed up to give drivers around the world the ultimate voice navigation.
When Schwarzenegger booms out ‘turn left’ or ‘turn right,’ drivers will be remiss not to follow the ‘Guardian’ Terminator’s commands.
“From the first time I used Waze, I have wanted to lend my voice to it. The Terminator is the perfect machine to guide Wazers to their destinations,” said Schwarzenegger. “Every single day on social media fans ask me to record my movie lines, so now I get to bring this classic role and my charming Austrian accent into their cars.”
The Waze app and special Terminator voice commands are free of charge. Wazers can choose the Terminator’s voice for navigation by clicking Settings -> Sound -> Voice Language.
“Partnering with Waze is a fun way to bring the Terminator to millions of fans all over the world,” said Megan Wahtera, SVP of Interactive Marketing at Paramount Pictures. “Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator is one of the most recognizable and iconic voices and we are excited for fans to experience him in this unique way.”
“Arnold Schwarzenegger is truly a cultural icon as the Terminator, with a presence and voice so big he barely fits in the car,” said Julie Mossler, spokeswoman for Waze. “Celebrity voice prompts are one of our most popular features and a great way to add some fun to time on the road. We are thrilled to offer such an unmistakable voice and entertain drivers en route to the movies this summer.”
