We know everyone gets bombarded with Christmas images earlier and earlier every year, and Madame Tussauds in New York just joined in on the assault fun. They shot their holiday cheer gun all over Justin Bieber‘s and Selena Gomez‘s wax figures! Because, you know, there’s nothing quite like spreading holiday joy through glorifying young and famous love (?).
The incredibly terrifying holiday-themed statues are dressed to the nines posing under the “Mistletoe,” and guests are invited to cozy up to the couple and snap some holiday photos of their own. We get that peeps know they won’t be fooling anyone with their faux photo opps, but couldn’t someone at the wax factory have TRIED to make them look real? This Bieber face made of meat is more realistic.
While we totally understand (and admirably respect) the art of wax sculpture may be a tricky trade to master, when creating lifelike figures of two of the most famous people in the world, someone’s got to at least take a peek at a recent photo! Sure, they captured the essence of the couple, but what did they do to Selena’s face?! We’re all about celebrating artistic interpretation, but yo, guys! That girl has been given the gift of beautiful cheekbones, and they made her look like a really PO’ed chipmunk (albeit a supercute chipmunk). But as they always say, “Art imitates life.” If this is the case, excuse me while I go hide under my bed.
