Wax figures can, and often do, go wrong. I suppose it is a difficult medium to work in but more often than not when I read a story about a wax figure it is like this one will go: discussing how bad the figure is. Or if people won’t stop punching it.
That brings us to the Ripley’s Believe it Or Not version of Kamala Harris. Wow, boy, is it bad.
Let’s just get to it:
Harris is, of course, the Vice President of the United States. The 57-year-old is also the first female Vice President, making her the highest-ranking female official in U.S. history. She also has the distinction for being the first African American as well as first Asian American to serve as vice president.
Her appointment to the position also made her the first Vice President to get a wax figure at Madam Tussauds.
The results for the experience were significantly better, as you can see.
The website for Madam Tussauds said that its ‘new additions are a part of Madame Tussauds New York’s newly refreshed Oval Office Experience’ and that ‘while it’s tradition for Madame Tussauds to create a wax figure of each U.S. president, this marks the first time the that museum extended the honor to a vice president.’
Ripley’s … well, they did not put out much information about their creation.
