Presenting The Meltable Beckhams

David and Victoria Beckham have been immortalized as wax figures–well, I guess as immortal as wax can be–which were revealed Tuesday at the Madame Tussauds New York wax museum. In honor of the famous couple’s relocation to the United States, the figures were draped with the American flag and unveiled as Neil Diamond’s “America” played in the background. God, that sounds like a nightmare-inducing scene indeed. Yahoo! News reports:

Their wax figures were decked out in American flags for their U.S. debut. But they’ll don different duds for their display duties: Becks will be dressed in a tuxedo, while Posh will sport a sparkly green dress with a long slit on the side.

The waxy couple will be posed at the Times Square museum with her head resting on his chest and his arm wrapped around her shoulder.

As much as I find it somewhat disturbing, I’m a little bit jealous. I mean, I guess I wouldn’t mind being made into a life-sized statue, as long as it was made out of cheese. And I was allowed to eat it. By myself. While watching reruns of “The Office.”

More photos of the waxed Beckham’s after the jump.
