Sam Smith Gave His Wax Statue A Smooch – See The Pics
12 August 2015
That moment when you get the chance to encounter yourself immortalized in wax form. That’s exactly what just happened to Sam Smith when he visited Madame Tussauds in San Francisco, California on Monday (August 10). And, as expected, it was totally the “surrealist experience of [his] life.”
Sam, who’d just performed at the Outside Lands Music Festival last night in San Fran — opening for Elton John no less — was honored with his own Madame Tussauds statue today. As one does in this situation, we can only guess, Sam definitely saw the unique photo potential here and posed alongside his selfie sculpture with a big, I-can’t-believe-this-is-actually-happening grin. Cute.
Then, since Sam was among the first people in the world to see and touch the thing, it was still pretty sterile, so he decided to pucker up and plant one on himself. Which means when people follow suit — and surely they will — they’ll kinda be secondhand kissing Smith himself (hey, we said kind of).
