Arnold Schwarzenegger Pranks Visitors to a Wax Museum [VIDEO]
Ever since I was young, I get a funny feeling when I see a wax figure. I was always a little afraid that they’d come to life. Well, that’s exactly what happened to some people visiting a wax museum in Hollywood. And to make it even more frightening, it was The Terminator!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is promoting his new movie, ‘Terminator Genisys,’ and so he headed into Hollywood, in full make-up, to interact with the fans. Through the course of the video, he shops for sunglasses, and approaches a Terminator impersonator on the street.
But my favorite parts take place in a wax museum, where people stand next to what they think is a wax figure of the Terminator. Their reactions are priceless when Arnold puts his arms up to wrap around their shoulders, or offers to take a picture with their camera. Awesome!
I got to see this kind of prank up close and personal when I was a youngster visiting California with my family. We were waiting for our tour of Universal Studios to start, when I noticed a man dressed in black and white horror-movie type make-up walk up and then stand completely still. He waited (and I kept quiet) until a woman and her daughter reached up to touch his face to see if he was real. That’s when he lurched forward and scared the heck out of them. It was hilarious!
