Arnold Schwarzenegger dressed as the Terminator to prank fans

He’ll be back. He’s just on his break and then he’s got to sweep the floor.

In possibly the funniest Arnie story this week (yesterday he was spotted riding around London on a Boris bike) a video has emerged of the musclebound actor working in Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles.

Dressed up as his most iconic character – battered leather jacket, metal-strewn face, sunglasses – he cakes on the make-up to pose as one of the famous waxworks before surprising a few patrons who stop for a picture. Naturally, he frightens the life out of guests as he springs to life like the world has gone to hell.

Not done there, he then saunters out onto the Hollywood Walk Of Fame - arguably the only place in the world where dressing like a retro film character won’t have you sticking out like  a sore thumb – and carries on his little charade, deadpan until the end.

It's here that Arnie attempts to talk to anyone he can: tourists, locals, delivery drivers - most of whom, unable to comprehend that one of the biggest stars in the would be dressed like that in broad daylight, have no idea it’s the real-deal himself.

Though the best moment is when he approaches one gaggle of sightseers having a snap with the fakest looking Terminator you’ve ever seen, and let’s just say the guy must have been thinking Hasta La Vista to his tip.

The stunt, if you’re wondering was done for charity. Find out more at Omaze.com
