Teen sensation and pop artist Austin Mahone played a practical joke on a few of his unwitting fans today at Madame Tussauds Orlando. Disguised as a Madame Tussauds employee, Mahone offered to take photos and videos for his fans as they posed next to his newly unveiled wax figure, before revealing himself to the surprised attraction guests. A group of fans was randomly selected to be among the first to meet Mahone’s figure under the guise of a promotional photo shoot.
“I had a great time today pretending to be a Madame Tussauds employee!” said Mahone. “I loved seeing my fans’ faces as they were looking at the figure, and then back to me. Their reactions were priceless! I have some of the best fans in world!”
Mahone has been nominated for more than 20 different awards over the last two years. The pop artist has won numerous awards from MTV, EMA’s Best Push Artist and Artist on the Rise, and The Teen Choice Award for Breakout Artist.
Madame Tussauds is world-renowned for the creation of detailed and lifelike wax figures that pay homage to A-list celebrities from film and television, sports icons, musicians from all genres, and notable figures from history and pop culture.
Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research and taking more than 300 measurements to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.
Guests at Madame Tussauds Orlando will experience the essence of America with this brand new, immersive and interactive wax experience, bursting with family fun and world-class entertainment, as they move through themed areas meeting all of their favorite stars from award-winning film actors, to historical and modern world leaders, sports stars, music legends as well as figures important to Florida.
