Presenting The Meltable Beckhams

January 24th, 2007 // 7 Comments

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.

    Posh looks more life like in wax than she does normally.

    Wow. She has never looked more lifelike. There’s one mistake with her statue though. She has looks like she almost has an expression on her face. And her nipples aren’t askew.

    Whoa. I enlarged the one close up shot. I swear the Becks statue looks alive. Check out the eyes! Madame Tussaud’s scores again!

    Upon further inspection, they actually improved Posh’s nose. It’s doesn’t look as “puggish” as the real Posh appears now.

    Although they ought to undate her statue with her new haircut, which is pretty and very flattering to her face. Those extensions she was sporting were way over the top. Almost drag queen.

    Go to Youtube and see the Ali G. interview with Posh and Becks. It’s hilarious!

    I agree with Lisa, victoria looks more human in wax….do I see a smile??

  6. Just wondering these days, how our society became so shallow as to put two so remarkabe usles people on the “high podium” considering they have done nothing for the improvement and betterment of humanity and nature….

    Getting a wax figure is probably as easy as getting a star on the walk of fame is these days. All you need is some cash, a few laywers, and a team of handlers and voila…

    The whole idea was probably orchestrated by Posh’s new best friend Katie as a welcoming gift.

    re Posh: I do have to say this is the first time I’ve seen a wax figure look so much better than the real thing. And I use the term “real” quite loosely. Maybe she can bring her plastic surgeon round for a 3D model of how life should imitate art.

    David’s wax figure looks f*cked up…like a soccer-playing South American version of Keifer Sutherland who’s taken way too many balls to face… (maybe Tom’s balls?)
