Arnold Schwarzenegger, power tools and Lidl. I won't lie, those are 3 words I never thought I'd hear used in the same sentence. We're big fans of DIY and the best power tools here at T3, so I knew this strange but wonderful piece of news had to be shared far and wide. 

From bodybuilder turned actor to Governor of California and now brand ambassador for PARKSIDE, the Hollywood star has teamed up with the discount supermarket to promote its popular DIY and home-improvement brand.

Appearing in a comedic advert to unveil the exciting new partnership, Arnold puts on a stellar performance as he re-enacts legendary moments from his colourful career, played out in a DIY PARKSIDE parallel universe. As a former bricklayer and all-round handyman himself, the star of Terminator is no stranger to tools he’s seen handling in the film. Have a look for yourself: 

The PARKSIDE brand - available at Lidl and Kaufland - offers DIY products that enable anyone and everyone to tackle garden, home and workshop tasks independently and in the blink of an eye. PARKSIDE promises the right tools for any DIY occasion, boasting quality products at great-value prices. From tools for work in the garden, at home, or in the workshop – the range is perfect for those with a ‘roll your sleeves up’ mentality. It also includes power tools as well as manual tools and enables all customers to carry out this work independently.
