In a rare bi-partisan move, majority and minority leaders in the U.S. Senate and the United States House of Representatives have signed an agreement in which the famed producer of wax people will reproduce the wax likenesses of elected officials on the floor of the House and Senate.
As is the case with real Senators and Representatives, the likenesses will sit motionless and passive. Madame Tussauds technicians will, however, program the likenesses to nod occasionally. “This will create a realism factor unlike any other Madame Tussauds attraction,” said a spokesman for Merlin. “As live telecasts show us, each chamber usually has one person speaking, with almost no one else present to listen. Our likenesses will create the illusion of a full house through the nodding and looking off functionality as well as an elected body that actually listen to one another.”
