Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed a novel way to promote the new Terminator movie: scaring the hell out of tourists!

A new viral video shows what happened when Arnie decided to prank fans at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood by posing as his own waxwork before jumping to life.

Not surprisingly the victims crapped themselves (see below). Hasta la vista, baby!

The prank was part of a series of stunts by big daddy Arnie to raise cash for charity.

Meanwhile Ginger Clam is damp with excitement as the clock ticks away towards the July 1st release of Terminator Genisys, the latest reboot of the movie franchise that sees Schwarzenegger back in his most famous role at the age of 67.

The plot depicts Arnie and Co in an alternative time-path to previous outings, so expect plenty of surprises. It co-stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Conner along with Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney as John Connor and Kyle Reese respectively.
