On any normal day, fans rarely get to meet their idols save for the lucky few. But recently, one lucky fan managed to experience what was perhaps the most surreal moment of his life.
The post was first spotted on the subreddit r/Damnthatsinteresting, with Max showing off his amazingly detailed Arnold Schwarzenegger Pipe. Many were impressed and it seemed that the biggest fan of this work was none other than Arnie himself. The actor came across the thread and reached out to the artist saying “Wow. This is fantastic. It is beautiful. Would you sell this to me?”
Of course, Max happily obliged and even offered to give the pipe to the actor for free. In return, Arnie decided to send an autographed photo of himself using the pipe as thanks.
He told the artist, “If you insist on giving it to me, I insist on sending you back a signed photo of me using it. (Now that it’s 2020 I just sign things on my machine and send in email if that works for you). You can send me a message and I’ll give you the details.”
It seems like it was a happy ending for all as Arnie loved the pipe too.
It was not clear if Max was aware that the user who asked him for the pipe was Arnold himself but it was still a cool gesture nonetheless. The Arnold Schwarzenegger Pipe is definitely one of the coolest fan creations we have seen so far and we look forward to stumbling across more curious Geek Arts in the future!
