Anderson Cooper Gets Waxed

It’s sort of a slow news day, so here’s a picture of Anderson Cooper and Anderson Cooper in wax form. Cooper’s likeness was created today by Madame Tussauds in Times Square, and the popular media personality just tweeted the picture.

We’re not really sure why people get excited about this, because if you think about it, it’s pretty damn weird. Not only is there a place that creates wax humans, people get so excited about the statues that they will then pay to see them. We wouldn’t even pay to see the real Simon Cowell, let alone a fake one.

But congrats to Cooper, at least his wax hair looks fabulous.
