Arnold Schwarzenegger, the actor eternally linked to the "Terminator" film's latest upload on his social media account went viral. The photo was taken near the Paris pride Eiffel Tower. What made it viral was him acting as the photobomber of a group of Thai tourists taking a group picture.

The former California governor posted on Instagram thanking the tourists for allowing him to crash their photo reports BBC. The tourists did not recognize the actor who was wearing a camouflage jacket and sunglasses riding his bike.

The tourists were posing and before the camera clicked, a huge man photobomb them who they did not recognize. It was when one of their companions shouted "Arnold" that they became aware it was the environmental preservation advocate who ruined their photo. Schwarzenegger has bodyguards on motorbikes. One of the tourists admitted that he thought another badass was just there to ruin their memorable day in Paris.

The "The Expendables" actor shared some of his Parisian vacation photos including the one taken at the famous tower. The photo has gone viral according to HuffPost and the tourists must have thanked the funny actor for photobombing them.

Aside from his visit to the Elysee Palace to meet French President Francois Hollande and the Eiffel Tower, he was seen visiting the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Les Invalides. He also met with the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo.

The actor has been doing environmental work in the country in partnership with the French leader. He received the Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur from the French government in recognition for his work in promoting renewable energy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has two movies for this year "Why We're Killing Gunther" and "Aftermath." The film about two people is drawn together after a plane crash was already released on March 31, 2017, while the action-comedy film he starred with Taran Killam has no release date announced yet.
