Grumpy Cat To Be First Cat Immortalized by Madame Tussauds
Grumpy Cat is getting her own was figure at Madame Tussauds… and well, she’s not happy.
The animatronic Grumpy Cat will debut at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, then go on tour in other U.S. locations.
Via Press Release:
Madame Tussauds is delighted to announce that irreverent Internet sensation Grumpy Cat will be the first ever cat to be immortalized in the attraction’s history.
“This is truly an honor…” said a distinctly unimpressed Grumpy Cat. “I hate it.”
Grumpy Cat shot to stardom when her photo was posted on Reddit on September 22, 2012. To dispel suspicions that the image had been Photoshopped, she posted two videos to YouTube. The videos went viral, making her the darling of meme-loving macro-makers everywhere.
In step with Grumpy Cat’s digital celebrity, her figure will be an animatronic with five different movements. The animatronic will be unveiled at Madame Tussauds’ San Francisco location later this year in typically aloof fashion by Grumpy Cat herself. After a short stay at Madame Tussauds San Francisco, the animatronic will tour the remaining five Madame Tussauds attractions across the US.
