Over 30 million subscribers and causing absolute pandemonium everywhere and anywhere they go – SMOSH has made digital media history in so many more ways that could ever be described! Madame Tussauds is adapting to the ever-changing times and with the rapid rise of the digital media world, they have just added their first ever wax figure of a YouTube sensation and it is none other than… SMOSH! SMOSH gets WAXED and their Madame Tussauds figure was first debuted at the premiere of their very own movie, “SMOSH: The Movie” in Los Angeles!
Fans and attendees at the renowned and prestigious Vidcon 2015 event that I covered for my site were also able to have the chance to take photos with SMOSH’s waxed figure as the Madame Tussauds wax figure of SMOSH made its way to the Taco Bell booth at Vidcon for fans to get up close and personal with. Following Vidcon, SMOSH’s Madame Tussauds wax figure will be making its rounds at the Madame Tussauds locations including San Francisco, New York, Hollywood, Orlando, Las Vegas, and Washington D.C. respectively and will be staying at each location for three months.
According to the press release, “What an honor it is to be recognized and chosen for Madame Tussauds first YouTube wax figures in their 250 year history. To have the big reveal take place on the red carpet at the premiere of our first movie just made this eventful day even more memorable,” commented Anthony and Ian of SMOSH. “We’re excited to bring them along to VidCon and can’t think of a more fitting venue to show off our wax selves!”
Kieran Lancini, Global Head of Media Relations for Madame Tussauds stated, “The inclusion of SMOSH as our first ever YouTube stars to launch in our history remains true to Madame Tussauds commitment to its heritage – as a showcase of those who have made an impact in the ever changing contemporary cultural landscape. We are thrilled and honored to feature SMOSH and have no doubt that their legion of fans will love interacting with their figures across the country.” (source: press release).
