A few months ago, a petition (which you can find at the end of this post) was circulating to get the Backstreet Boys forever memorialized in pop culture history as wax figures at the famous Madame Tussauds. In the 23 cities that the famous wax museum exists, none of them contain a single Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, or Nick Carter.
And that is tragic.
We need the Backstreet Boys as wax figures and we need them NOW. Why?
1. Because sometimes our VIP photos don’t turn out EXACTLY as we want.
99% of our Backstreet VIP photos turn out PERFECT, but sometimes, someone blinks, licks their lips, or starts talking at the wrong moment. Sometimes we think of the PERFECT pose only to find them not on tour anytime soon. Sometimes there’s just no way we’d ask the ACTUAL Backstreet Boys to allow us to look like the fan girl we really want to be.
For all of these things, there COULD be wax figures!
You want to stand pretend to freak out over Howie? Done.
Want to pick Brian’s nose? All yours.
The options are endless.
2. Breaking one wouldn’t be as scary as breaking a real Backstreet Boy.
Really, you’re not even supposed to touch the wax figures, but at least if Kevin’s hand broke off in yours… it wouldn’t be AS traumatic. It might cost you more, but I digress…
3. They deserve it, duh.
They’ve been working HARD for 23+ years. They’ve gotten awards, platinum albums, sold out tours worldwide, and gotten their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This is OBVIOUSLY the natural progression.
And dammit, we’re going to get those wax figures some wax Grammys!
4. Because N*Sync has them…
…And anything N*Sync does, Backstreet does better.
