Arnold Schwarzenegger pranks unsuspecting fans

Contrary to popular belief, Arnold is a ball of fun! He likes to blast stuff with his tank while going to late night shows for funny little skits. Likewise, he likes to prank people. In 2015, Arnold dressed up as his iconic character “The Terminator”, on the streets of Hollywood and at the local Madame Tussauds wax museum.

In the resurfaced video, we see Arnold disguised as a T-800 to prank innocent bystanders. Arnold took to the streets and spoke confidently to a woman, telling her “Come with me if you want to live” and she did not accept the proposal. He also had fun trying on new glasses at a sunglasses store. Meanwhile, Arnold indulged in a hilarious “I’ll be back” battle with a ‘Terminator Imitator’ in the streets.

The other phase of the prank involved Arnold pranking tourists at Madame Tussauds wax museum. He scared a lot of people off, but it turned out fine as everyone left with a happy smile. The stuffing wasn’t useless though; he performed it to help promote After-School All-Stars. It is a program that supports after-school programs for children because Schwarzenegger is the founder of the program.

In another prank video, Arnold went sheltered at Gold’s gym as a trainer. With an obviously fake mustache and not too much coverage, one would assume it would be fairly easy to spot the legend that is Schwarzenegger. Surprisingly, that was not the case. Arnold greeted people at the reception as they didn’t seem to notice who was standing in front of them.

Arnold then helped people do their exercises despite this, many people did not recognize the “Terminator”. A few people figured out who “Howard” really was.
