Back in October, we shared with you a video of Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu pretending to be a wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood so he could suddenly come to life and scare people. Now, almost nine months later, here’s the follow-up: Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks pretending to be a wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Hollywood so he can suddenly come to life and scare people. Well, I guess you stick with what works. Going forward, I’m assuming everything in the museum is just a bored sports guy looking for a payday and an afternoon of air conditioning.

Happy Halloween From Shifty-Eyed Vigo the Carpathian - The greatest character in the history of movies. One of my career goals is to make a prequel film about him, but make it a dreary period-piece starring Keira Knightley and somebody. Also, to have sex with Keira Knightley. [Gamma Squad]

Check out what Troy Polamalu’s up to this season: promoting Head And Shoulders by posing as a wax figure and coming to life Kim Cattrall style to scare people at Madame Tussaud’s in Hollywood. And, uh, losing to the Texans!
Some of the better reactions in the video include a child who doesn’t know what a posing arm implies, an old man who says Troy Polamalu looks “a little” like Troy Polamalu and the girl at the :49 second mark who shoves him in the chest and almost fumbles the ball. I feel pretty jipped by this video, I’ve got to say. I was in Hollywood and walked by Madame Tussaud’s a few weeks ago, and the only living wax creature I saw was a guy in the lobby dressed like Rambo.
I’m not 100% on how this promotes shampoo (I mean previous to this were we supposed to believe he washed his hair with a stone, or what), but it’s pretty awesome, Steelers fan or no. They should do this gag with other players. Have Ben Roethlisberger stand still in the Madame Tussaud’s bathroom with his pants down and see how many people fall for it.
