Arnold Schwarzenegger Lends Voice to the Terminator Waze App to Promote 'Terminator Genisys'
Traffic navigating app Waze teamed up with actor and former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to promote his 'Terminator Genisys,' the fifth installment to the movie series 'Terminator.'
The actor explained in a press release by Business Wire, "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 (the people using the app) to their destinations."
"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," he added.
This customized 'Terminator' voice command is now made available to the users of the free application on their Apple or Android devices. According to Business Wire, "Wazers will be able to opt in to using the Terminator's voice for navigation by clicking Settings -> Sound -> Voice Language."
Julie Mossler, spokesperson of Waze, shared her thoughts regarding this team up, "Arnold Schwarzenegger is truly a cultural icon as the Terminator, with a presence and voice so big he barely fits in the car."
She added, "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."
Paramount Pictures Senior Vice President for Interactive Marketing Megan Wahtera said, "Partnering with Waze is a fun way to bring the 'Terminator' to millions of fans all over the world. 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."
'Terminator Genisys' will be out in theaters this July 1, with Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Dayo Okeniyi, J.K. Simmons, Matthew Smith, Byung-Hun Lee, and Courtney B. Vance joining Arnold Schwarzenegger.
