  • by: Jeremy Smith

Yesterday marked the 12th anniversary of Facebook, and they celebrated by releasing a new video feature that stitches together photos of users with their nearest and dearest. They created their own day, "Friends Day", to commemorate this special feat.

Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to one up Facebook, by posting his own "Friends Day" video to his YouTube page, celebrating his lifelong friendship with his pal 'Franco'. Francesco 'Franco' Columbu is as a former champion bodybuilder and World's Strongest Man competitor.

The caption for the video states:

In 1968 I moved to America, all alone, with nothing. But in 1969, this goofy, strong Sardinian joined me. We've been best friends ever since - even though we haven't understood a word we've said to each other. Happy #FriendsDay Franco

'The Arnold' also posted a pic of the duo, on his Instagram account:

It's good to see friends being friends.
