question of the day: What is the appeal of Madame Tussauds?
Apparently lots of people are excited by the appearance of Prince William and Kate Middleton -- aka the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- at Madame Tussauds in London. Not the actual duke and duchess, but wax replica statues of them. From the Guardian:
Photographers and camera crews jostled for position on Wednesday morning as Madame Tussauds in London unveiled its Catherine and William engagement tableau.
I just don’t get it. Do people feel like they’ve actually seen a celebrity in person if they stand near a waxwork replica?
What is the appeal of Madame Tussauds?
Can someone explain it to me?
