Arnold Schwarzenegger Pranks Fans by Posing as His "Terminator" Wax Figure



    Arnold Schwarzenegger was right, he would be back.

    The "Terminator" star had some quality fun when he dressed up as his movie character to prank tourists at Madame Tussauds wax museum in West Hollywood. While some innocent attendees were taking pictures with they thought was an artificial figure, Schwarzenegger started to move and made the innocent people scream.

    His victims included a baby who cried after the 67-year-old actor "came to life" mid-selfie. One visitor even commented how lifelike Schwarzenegger's wax figure was before he turned to her and said, "I am real."

    The scary prank was all in the name of good work. The former governor of California is partnering with charity fundraising platform Omaze to offer one lucky fan (and a friend) the chance to attend the "Terminator Genisys" premiere and after-party, simply by donating $10 (or more) for entry into the raffle-like drawing. Donations will benefit Schwarzenegger's charity After-School All-Stars.

    Not only did the actor-turned-politician pretend to pose as his wax figure, he also hit the streets of Los Angeles dressed in character, approaching random people and muttering lines from his movies.

    Schwarzenegger isn't the only star to be going undercover for charity as of late. "Magic Mike XXL" star Channing Tatum also underwent a makeover that involved prosthetics and a wig while teaming up with Omaze. Tatum morphed into his character, senior citizen Scott Hasley, who works for Harley Marketing Solutions.

    "I'm the most terrifying marketing exec ever," Tatum said with a laugh.

    Adopting a Southern drawl, an in-character Tatum told the camera crew, "We're about to go in and we're about to tell them that they're about to get a 3D experience. It can't get any more real than this."

    After instructing the audience to put their 3D glasses on, strobe lights flashed and strippers emerged while Tatum (as Scott) gave a one lucky woman a lap dance. Tatum's Omaze raffle benefitted the Runa Foundation, which is sponsoring the creation of the world's first medical and research clinics for Amazonian plant medicine in Rios Nete, Peru, and Naku, Ecuador.
