What is better than Arnold Schwarzenegger crushing things in a tank? Nothing. Nothing is better than Arnold Schwarzenegger crushing things in a tank.

Unless you’re riding with Arnold in the tank. For one lucky person, that is the prize he or she can win for donating to the After School All-Stars program.

To garner maximum publicity for its fundraising campaign, After School All-Stars put Arnie in an M47 Patton tank and let him run over taxi cabs, pianos and most satisfying of all, rolls of bubble wrap.

Watch the destruction here:

The After School All-Stars Program, which turns 20 this year, seeks to “provide comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them succeed in school and in life.”

It operates in 14 regions of the United States: Atlanta, Chicago, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, North Texas, Ohio, Orlando, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area, South Florida and Washington, D.C.

Currently, the program supports over 90,000 children who come from families in poverty with academic support and enrichment opportunities.

Schwarzenegger, who is chairman of the After School All-Stars program, has also promised to match every $10 donation made dollar for dollar.

“You + 1 will fly to Los Angeles and spend the day with Arnold — you’ll ride in his tank together, crush something together, work out together, smoke cigars together — you’ll live like Arnold for a day!” the website trumpets.

A previous fundraising stunt for the All-Stars involved Arnie disguising himself and working out with unsuspecting members of the public at their local gym.
