Ok, this is just downright creepy. For anybody who knows Madame Tussauds (pronounced “two-so”), you know how lifelike their work is. In this video, Luke Bryan gets to experience it firsthand.
Bryan met the wax version of himself on a recent trip to the Madame Tussauds in New York City. He also reveals how detailed the whole process really is.
For starters, they have to get the person’s permission. “I remember when we got the call to do it, and I thought it’d be pretty interesting,” Bryan says. “It’s a pretty intense process.”
They measure the celebrities and then use their own clothes and accessories to complete the touch. Bryan says he’s got plenty of friends who keep him humble about such an honor, though.
The original Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is in London, with a history that dates back to 1835. There, master sculptors create wax figures of famous celebrities throughout history.
The brand since expanded all across the globe. In fact, Nashville has its very own Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in the works. Opening on April 14, the hot tourist spot opens in the Opry Mills Mall near the Grand Ole Opry.
Though most people think of Nashville as strictly a country hot spot, the museum hopes to feature a wide range of the town’s musical heritage. But, of course, music takes center stage at the Music City Madame Tussauds. In fact, much of the experience revolves around retelling the tales of famous American musicians.
Other additions include an “MTTV” feature where guests can perform alongside their favorite stars. There will also be recreations of the Grand Ole Opry and the Bluebird Cafe featuring characters from the hit show Nashville.
No word on whether or not the Luke Bryan figure will make its way to Nashville. Either way, its sure to feature tons of impressive sculptures — and a real celebrity or two.
