Remember how basketball star Jeremy Lin successfully pulled a prank on museum-goers at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum? The famous NBA player easily tricked and scared unsuspecting visitors after posing as a wax statue.
This time, it was Hollywood superstar and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s turn to do the funny prank.
Posing as T-101, his iconic character in the blockbuster movie franchise “The Terminator”, Schwarzenegger perfectly stood still as a wax statue. Of course, convinced museum-goers posed and took selfies with the “realistic” wax figure.
When people came close enough, T-101 suddenly came to life and frightened his fans. Luckily, the victims were able to recover from Schwarzenegger’s funny stunt.
The wax statue prank was staged in order to show support to “After-School All-Stars”, a charity group helping youth classified as high-risk in 15 states in the US. In addition, it’s also an effective way for Schwarzenegger to promote his upcoming movie Terminator: Genisys.
The latest film in the Terminator series is set to hit theatres on July 1.
Watch the funny prank below.
