Hello people of the internet!!! On today’s ‘YouTube Wednesday’ we’re going to talk about something a little different than what we usually discuss. This year has definitely been a HUGE year for YouTubers. Many of our fav internet celebrities have gotten book/movie/TV/deals, scored magazine covers, and so many other amazing traditional media opportunities. One of the most recent accomplishments that a lot of YouTubers can add to their resumes, is the honor of being added to Madame Tussauds’ Wax Museum. This is an INCREDIBLE win for Team Internet that will definitely change up the game for everyone. So now let’s get to the fun part! Ready? Ok, let’s go!!!
In the past few months, we have found out that vloger Alfie Deyes, beauty guru/blogger Zoella, and comedians Smosh and Jenna Marbles would be receiving their own wax figures in Madam Tussauds’ museums. Honestly this is a HUGE accomplishment for them, because it places them in incredible company. This also continues to solidify the fact that in the past 10 years, YouTubers have gone from “kids making videos in their bedrooms”, to actual respected entertainers, and moguls in their respected fields.
Now if for some reason you don’t know who Madam Tussauds is, then you definitely need to keep reading because you will become OBSESSED with this awesome museum. Madam Tussauds’ Museum first opened in London 200 years ago, and has since opened branches all over the world. The museum & displays wax sculptures of some of the world’s most important political, sports, and pop culture figures. Some people that have gotten a wax figure include: Barack Obama, Abraham Lincoln, Princess Diana, Jennifer Aniston, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso, Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe, and so many other amazing people. Needless to say, once you get one of these wax figures you are instantly added to a secret club of awesomeness. I can’t wait to see what types of opportunities YouTubers continue to receive, as the internet and traditional media continue to built off of each other.
