Arnold Schwarzenegger is proving that anything's possible in America. First he was a celebrated actor and one of the most famous governors in California since past President Reagan. Than he came under fire as someone with a questionable character after having fathered a child with his maid while his wife Maria Shriver was taking care of their kids in the governor's mansion with him. Now Schwarzenegger is making a comeback again and proving controversy can sell as he gets paid $3 million for a new Bud Light Super Bowl ad, reported ABC News on Jan. 17, 2014.

At 66 years old Schwarzenegger has agreed to star in Bud Light’s new humorous ad campaign which is titled,
“The Perfect Beer for Whatever Happens.” The ad will debut on Feb. 2 during Super Bowl XLVIII. The $3 million he is being paid to drink a little beer for the ad goes to show you reaching for the American dream of great wealth is always worth fighting for. Paul Chibe, Anheuser-Busch’s vice president of U.S. marketing, is clearly pleased to have Schwarzenegger working for the firm, and has said, “We have a game plan in place this year to deliver creative that celebrates Bud Light and Budweiser while reaching loyal beer drinkers and new generations.”

A source has confirmed for Adweek that Schwarzenegger will be featured in a Super Bowl Ad Appearance for Bud Light. Since leaving political office in 2011, Schwarzenegger has resumed his acting career. He starred in "The Last Stand" and "Escape Plan" in 2013. This year he will be appearing in "The Expendables 3", "Sabotage" and the zombie film "Maggie". Bud Light is helping him enjoy his acting revival a little more by making him 3$ million richer in a flash. If you want lessons in how to survive scandals and still make it big in America, Schwarzenegger would be the right person to know
