Carl Weathers for Governor

…..Carl Weathers

Voice Over: Jesse Ventura… Arnold Swartzenegger… mavericks… Americans… governors… and stars of the movie “Predator.”

Carl Weathers: Just like me, Carl Weathers. Hi, I’m Carl Weathers. I’m the black guy from “Predator.” This American classic has already provided two state governors and frankly, I’d like to be the third. I’m not fussy; I mean any state is fine. And while I’ve never voted personally, I was in the movie “Predator,” where I played the black guy. My compatriot and good friend Arnold Swartzenegger said “Hasta La Vista” to politics as usual when he “terminated” Gray Davis. Well I’d like to think that I’ve got the Apollo credentials to be your governor. Why? Because I am a man of action – Jackson. And I was in “Predator.” Alright I know what you’re thinking. Wasn’t Danny Glover the black guy from “Predator?” And shouldn’t he, therefore, be your governor? No. That was “Predator 2.” Doesn’t America deserve better than the star of “Predator 2?” The America I know and love won’t settle for less. But more importantly, do you remember that I was in “Predator?” Well, I was in “Predator.”

Voice Over: Carl Weathers for Governor. He was the black guy in “Predator.”
