Bad Bunny is a world-famous rapper and one of the biggest names in Latin music. He also teamed up with Damian Priest and squared off against The Miz & John Morrison in a tag team match on Night One of WrestleMania 37. Bad Bunny’s performance far exceeded anyone’s expectations as he truly put on a show worthy of WrestleMania. Just recently, not one, not two, but three Bad Bunnies appeared in Times Square in front of a cheering throng.
Two life-size copies of Bad Bunny have been added to the collection of the iconic firm known for crafting wax figures that look exactly like celebrities. One of the figures will take up residency in Madame Tussauds’ Orlando site later this month, while the other will remain in Times Square, where it is already accessible to view. After being unveiled by the two-time Grammy winner in a New York City event, those wax statues are getting big attention.
The Puerto Rican rapper, born Benito Antonio Martnez Ocasio, appeared in front of a curtain that dropped to expose his two sculptures. They were flanked on either side by sparking fire cannons. He expressed his delight to the crowd in Spanish.
I’ve always wanted to look at myself straight on and how it is to stand next to myself. I saw a picture during production, but now looking at it in person, it’s so crazy.
According to a news announcement, Bad Bunny decided the permanent stance of the two figurines — both pinkies raised — and over 200 measurements and images of him were gathered to capture his exact features. The silver attire he wore during the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show, as well as the actual jacket he wore when performing alongside Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, and J Balvin, are featured in his New York monument.
