While aping the popular home shopping network QVC Monday, former California governor and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger joined The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon to demonstrate a Vitamix blender, as well as a “Slap Chop” slicing and dicing utensil.
Schwarzenegger was also promoting his latest fundraising venture, which involves the Sabotage star running over things in an old Austrian tank. Schwarzenegger explained, “This is the actual tank I drove in the Austrian army when I was 18 years old. Now we are using it for fundraising, as I am very passionate about after school programs.”
Regarding the QVC spoof, Schwarzenegger told Fallon during his interview, “When I see a product I really love, I really get into it, I get behind it, I want it to be successful and to sell it- that’s just me.” That was the segue into a skit called Now We’re Cookin’ With Zach Striker, which starred a blonde-wigged Fallon and Schwarzenegger as a famous and Slap Chop-obsessed foodie.
An increasingly impatient Schwarzenegger, drawing upon his acting experience from 1987’s sci-fi epic Predator, repeatedly exclaimed, “Let’s Get to the Chopper!,” while growing ever impatient with Fallon’s Vitamix blender presentation:

After flipping the demonstration table over, Schwarzenegger warns, “I’ll be back,” one his most famous lines, taken from James Cameron’s 1984 sci-fi classic The Terminator.
Here’s the trailer for Schwarzenegger’s latest film, Sabotage:
