Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, also known as The Terminator, had a good time pranking fans in Hollywood, where he posed as a wax figure of himself at Madame Tussauds Wax Attraction in Hollywood. The video of Schwarzenegger was created to bring awareness to the After-School All-Stars charity.
Schwarzenegger is also promoting his latest film, Terminator Genisys, which is the fifth installment in the Terminator movie franchise. Arnold spent time getting his makeup done so he could look just like The Terminator and fool his fans. He then posed inside Madame Tussauds, waiting for eager fans to pose beside him before speaking and startling them. You can see the startled reactions of those wanting to take a picture with his wax figure by viewing the video above.
Afterwards, Schwarzenegger roamed the streets of West Hollywood, speaking to random people. He even came across a Terminator impersonator, Uproxx reports.
At the end of the video, Schwarzenegger promotes After-School All-Stars, a charity that provides after-school programs to help children succeed in school and in their lives. Arnold has been an advocate of the said charity for years, and this time, the pledging money for the charity has to do with Arnold’s upcoming movie.
On the website Omaze, supporters can pledge money to the charity (ranging from $10 to $50,000) and get treats in return. Some of these include a digital “Thank You” video from Arnold, shirts signed by Arnold, participation in Schwarzenegger’s 2016 Charity Poker Tournament at his home, tickets to the Terminator Genisys premiere, and meet and greet with Mr. Terminator himself.
Terminator Genisys is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 1. Aside from Arnold reprising his role as The Terminator, other stars in the movie include Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Matt Smith, J.K. Simmons, and Lee Byung-hun.
