LOS ANGELES, Calif. (June 19, 2015) – Some Terminator fans got up close and personal with the legendary machine from the movies although they certainly didn’t expect it.
Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger pulled a fast one on unsuspecting visitors to Madame Tussauds wax museum in Hollywood. Dressed as the iconic T-101, Schwarzenegger stood perfectly still and pretended to be one of the museum’s famous wax statues.
But when visitors got close to snap a picture, the Terminator came to life, scaring some fans out of their wits and giving everyone a good laugh.
The former California governor staged the prank to raise awareness for After-School All-Stars, a group that serves at-risk youth in 15 cities across the country. He’s offering fans a chance to attend the premiere of the latest film in the Terminator series, Terminator: Genisys, which opens July 1.
