Think back to February 2022 when Arnold Schwarzenegger and Salma Hayek starred in the BMW Super Bowl iX EV commercial. The quick running gag in that place is that Schwarzenegger, who plays the Greek god Zeus, has a tiny Pegasus as a pet. The German brand is proud enough of this little mythical creature to make it extravagant. Now, the company has gotten a former Governor to promote the toy on Instagram.
Actor and bodybuilder Ralf Moeller appears with Schwarzenegger in the video. He had a minor role as the Greek god Poseidon in a Super Bowl commercial.
Weird video. As if Schwarzenegger and Moeller selling a plush Pegasus weren’t weird enough, they also whisper the whole time because the clip is supposed to have an ASMR effect.
The guys slowly opened the Pegasus box. After opening the outer box, there was another package inside. Listen carefully to hear Schwarzenegger beat to the beat Terminators theme outside the package.
Schwarzenegger took a luxurious Pegasus out of the inner box. He did an awesome job acting like ley loved this toy. The winged horse flew through the air, and Arnold even kissed it.
If you want your own Pegasus doll, BMW charges €49.00 per unit in its European stores. Motor1.com contact the automaker about availability in the United States.
The Super Bowl BMW 2022 commercial tells the story of Zeus and Hera, played by Salma Hayek, leaving Mount Olympus and moving to Palm Springs, California. In the mortal world, Zeus was bored until Hera bought his family a new iX EV. They rode it singing along to an Eddy Grant song Electric Road.
In the US, the iX is available in two trims. The xDrive50 is the entry-level model that produces 516 horsepower (385 kilowatts) and 564 pound-feet (765 Newton-meters) of torque.
