  • Arnie Plays a Practical Joke on Fans by Posing as Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds

Arnie (Arnold Schwarzenegger) played a practical joke on his fans by posing as a wax figure at Madame Tussauds.

“I’ll be back!”

Those words ring a bell through recent history as Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke them with ardor in The Terminator Series of movies. Arnold played an android cyborg that had arrived from the future in the franchise that proved so popular.

However, at present, Arnie (as he is lovingly called by his fans) had a blast when he dressed up with a few makeup touches as one of the wax figures at Madame Tussauds. The museum houses the wax statues of many famous movers and shakers of history. It contains a figure of Arnold as well. But this time, in place of the wax figure was a very real Arnold.

As he stood there in a static pose, the onlookers could not believe how realistic the so-called wax statue looked. The venue of this branch of Madame Tussauds was West Hollywood. As his fans queued up to stand by his side and have their pictures taken, he suddenly exposed his cover.

The fans were so shocked that several among them especially the females just screamed out loud. Imagine the surprise of a lifetime. They had almost thought that the wax figure had been brought back to life a la the movie Mannequin.

The stunning reception gave way to squeals of delight and wow-worthy hero worship as his fans started to gather around him for autographs and more photographs. Arnold Schwarzenegger will also give one lucky fan a chance to attend the Terminator Genisys premiere and after-party, simply by donating $10 (or more) for Schwarzenegger's charity After-School All-Stars via the charity fundraising platform Omaze.

One of the crowd members was a little baby who immediately began to bawl for its mama upon being caught in a selfie with Arnie. It was a laugh out loud and hilarious moment of pleasant jack-in-the-box peek-a-boo.

Another person on the receiving end of the practical joke had commented to E! News on how close to life Arnie’s wax figure was, when Arnold spoke the words “I am real”. That person probably got scared witless.

But the legitimate question is: was all this meant as just a silly prank or did it have a more serious purpose to it. Well, Arnie has hooked up with Omaze to hold a charity where one of the lucky winners among his many fans will get to visit the premiere and after-party of Terminator Genisys.

The overall incoming profits will go towards funding Arnold’s charity program. Good old Arnie certainly came back to entertain his fans and that too for a worthy cause!
