Schwarzenegger: “Let’s not complain, let’s do something”
Black glasses and white beard on the face. Brown leather jacket, jeans and boots on. But above all a lot of strength on her arms. Who would have thought? It is indeed him, the legendary warrior Conan who empties a bag of hot poured asphalt into the hole and spreads it with a shovel. A perfect job, which lasted several hours and is summed up in a one-minute video that goes around the world on social media. “It’s crazy. I’ve been waiting for three weeks for this hole to be fixed,” says the former California governor to a woman in the car who stops curious and thanks him. “Today, after the whole neighborhood got angry about this giant hole that has been causing cars and bicycles to crash for weeks, I went out with my team and fixed it” says the former Austrian bodybuilder who, proud of the result obtained , he wrote on Twitter: “I always say: let’s not complain, let’s do something about it, here we go.” The hole is gone.
