Actor, politician, TV host and muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger has become the umpteenth person to jump aboard the (highly tiresome) Nickelback bashing bandwagon.
The Terminator star shared a video on his social channels last night where he hit out at United States Congress by saying: “Here are some of the things that are more popular than Congress: haemorrhoids, Nickelback, traffic jams, root canals, colonoscopies, herpes. Even herpes, they couldn’t beat herpes in the polls.”
Pushing for reform in Congress, Schwarzenegger also tweeted: “When Congress is less popular than herpes & Nickelback, how do 97% of them get re-elected? Gerrymandering.”
Little did Schwarzenegger realise that he was taking on the undisputed kings of Twitter comebacks.
Citing the critically savaged 1997 superhero movie ‘Batman & Robin’ in which Schwarzenegger stars as Dr. Victor Fries / Mr. Freeze, Nickelback responded: “Approval rate this: Batman & Robin. Please leave us out of your future wisdom drops. Danke Shön Herr Governator.”
Conceding that he had been trumped by the Canadian rockers, Schwarzenegger retorted: “That's... ice cold. I hope we can agree that we need a freeze on gerrymandering, guys. Thanks for the reply.”
