Arnold Schwarzenegger got in trouble with a group of Thai tourists this week, when he photobombed their Eiffel Tower shot. The 69-year-old actor was on a bike ride when he invaded the picture, and the group wasn't happy.
They later described how they'd failed to recognise the Hollywood legend and one of the tourists, Lek Wattana was even quoted as saying: ”We all went to Paris on a group tour and we all got together for a picture in front of the Eiffel Tower.
”Then some foreigner on a bike stopped in front of the group. I was thinking to myself ‘why is he so rude?’."
Arnold later took to Instagram to thank the ungrateful tourists for their time, writing: "Fantastic bike ride through Paris. I cannot say this enough: to truly appreciate a city, get on a bike. Thank you to the tourists at the Eiffel Tower for letting me crash your photo!"
He's clearly getting as much use out of that bike as he can, before he takes delivery of his new taxi. The purchase, from Coventry-based London Taxi Company was confirmed last month.
The former Governor of California is a long-time fan of the famous London taxi and was one of hundreds of US-based customers to buy a black cab more than a decade ago, paying thousands to have one shipped to California back in 2003.
Let's hope they're environmentally friendly enough...
