Video: Arnold Schwarzenegger Disguises Himself At A Venice Gold's Gym

Here's a funny video of bodybuilder, actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger donning a terrible disguise to whip gym goers into shape.

In the video, Schwarzenegger puts on a mustache, wig and a hat to transform into "Howard Kleiner," a new regional manager for Gold's Gym in Venice. Watch as Arnold teaches a woman to drink water in reps, reminds another woman that she has both elbows and knees, and admires an early photo of himself on the wall. The best part is a woman curiously claiming, "You look so familiar to me!"

I mean, it's obviously a staged PR tactic, but come on, look at that mustache!
