Madame Tussauds Creates Awkwardly Lifelike Wax Sculpture of Ovechkin

The Madame Tussauds wax museum unveiled its newest body yesterday in the form of Capitals star Alexander Ovechkin. The statue manages to be both extremely realistic and very creepy (see the Uncanny Valley Hypothesis).

Ovechkin, the real one, was on hand for the unveiling, and posed for pictures with his undead clone.
