Arnold Schwarzenegger Pranks Fans At Madame Tussauds, And It's Hilarious

Visitors at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Los Angeles got way more than they paid for, thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The 67-year-old icon dressed up as his "Terminator" character (makeup and all) and stood in for his wax statue at the museum, then proceeded to jump out and scare fans when they approached him for photographs.

A video of the stunt, which was posted on the actor's YouTube account, shows guests posing with what they thought was a wax statue of the former governor of California, only to be caught off guard (and terrified) when he starts moving and talking.

One fan walked up to him saying, "He looks real," to which Schwarzenegger responded, "Because I am!" Naturally, she shrieked and scurried away.

The action movie star also took to the streets of LA, walking around with the city's many famous lookalikes while reciting lines from the film. He even ran into another Terminator.

The Austrian-born actor's prank was part of a contest in support of After-School All-Stars; entrants can win the chance to attend the "Terminator Genisys" with Arnold himself. Every $10 entry fee goes towards the charity.

"Terminator Genisys" is set to hit theaters July 1.
