Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger terminate fans at Madame Tussaud's

Technically Incorrect: Visitors to the wax museum think they're posing with an inanimate version of the actor, and then he comes to life. They nearly die.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.

When you're promoting your new movie, there are several ways to get attention.

You can do interviews in which you say outrageous things or get heartily offended by personal questions.

You can apologize in advance for the press tour you're about to undertake, in which you may say outrageous things and get heartily offended by personal questions.

Or you can simply frighten the life out of your audience. In real life.

Arnold Schwarzenegger chose the last option. The former governor of California, whose "Terminator Genisys" movie comes out July 1, went along to the Madame Tussaud's Museum in LA and pretended to be made of wax.

Some might suggest that this would have taken too much acting.

However, Schwarzenegger was convincing enough that some unsuspecting human beings thought they were about to have their lives terminated.

Grown-ups screamed, teens ran away, babies wailed. Yes, this was the perfect trip to Madame Tussaud's.

Perhaps the finest moment is when a woman walked up to him with her friends and said: "He look real."

And then she discovered he was.
