There are some creepy Meghan Markle and Prince Harry live wax dolls that are horrifying the internet
So 2018 certainly has been a big year for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, hasn't it? They got married, announced they were expecting their first child, and managed to make headlines practically any time they stepped outside. And guess what - they've only gone and done it again.
Well, sort of.
This week, two Meghan and Harry "living" wax dolls were revealed at Madame Tussauds in Berlin as part of a new attraction. Rather than wowing their audience as they were intended to, however, the duke and duchess lookalikes left visitors to the museum horrified, and it's not hard to see why!
Two actors wearing wax heads were hired to pose as the royal couple, which sounds kinda fun (maybe?), but ended up being utterly terrifying. Perhaps it's their uncanny resemblance to Meghan and Harry, or maybe it's because of how large their heads are, or, you know, it might have something to do with their cold, dead eyes - but something just isn't ok in these pictures.
Harry looks excited, sure, but Meghan looks like she's having some sort of flashback of an embarrassing mistake she made back in 1998. Or maybe she ate some bad turkey at Christmas dinner - who knows. Either way, it's not as bad as this mess:
WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS OK? Like, seriously, who saw these two people in their wax headgear and thought, "Sure, let's market this as a positive experience."
It is the stuff of nightmares, and I am not the only one who thinks so.
"These are going to haunt me in my sleep," commented one Twitter user.
"Omg, what a hoot!" added another. "So fake it's ridiculous."
And a third summed up what we're all thinking with the simple comment: "dear god why."
The thing is, the wax heads aren't badly designed at all. Harry actually looks good enough that you might just mistake him for the real deal (if you were in a dark room, perhaps, which is probably the last place you'd ever want to encounter a 5'10 dude with a wax mask), and Meghan's replica is good enough to be easily recognisable. It's just that wax works should not move. They shouldn't dance around wearing Christmas jumpers. And they absolutely should not be doing whatever the heck this is:
So, to whomever made these: well done for your courageous efforts, but NO THANK YOU for all the nightmares I'm going to have for the next six months. Next time, stick to the non-living models, please.
