Watch the not-at-all humble trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new memoir


Schwarzenegger: memoir writer and conqueror of careers. (Jean-Christophe Bott - Associated Press)

Arnold Schwarzenegger is releasing his memoir, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story,” next month. For that reason, the Terminator is starring in a new trailer for the book in which he demonstrates a profound sense of humility.

Just kidding! He actually brags about himself for almost a minute-and-a-half straight.

He reminds us that he has “conquered careers,” including one as a body-builder that made him “the strongest and most muscular man in the world,”as an actor who became “one of the biggest action stars of all time” and as a politician who was elected “governor of one of the largest economies in the world.”

Weirdly, he neglects to mention “Jingle All the Way” or that time he fathered a child with the family housekeeper and didn’t tell his wife about it for 10 years. But maybe he thought that would make the video clip a little too braggy.

However, he does ask at the end of the trailer whether we’re “ready for the story” we don’t know about him. So maybe that means he’ll address both matters in the book. At the very least, let’s hope he lays out a detailed plan regarding how to ensure that JohnnyCabs become a reality in 2013.
