Arnold Schwarzenegger almost got terminated in a close encounter with a speedy elephant.

The Terminator has been chased by a lot of things over the years, liquid metal terminators, armed mercenaries, predators, but an African elephant?  That's a first.

Video popped up on YouTube showing a safari's close encounter with an elephant in South Africa.

First the elephant blocks the road, inspecting the group of gawkers.

It then chases down the vehicle as it departs.

The story turns wonderfully random when you find out the person in the video is Arnold.

The former Governator has been documenting a trip to South Africa on social media and posted the encounter himself, saying he couldn't have written it better if it was a movie.
