For the third time, Bad Bunny has been honored by Madame Tussauds with a realistic wax figure. Just in time for the Latin American Music Awards, which landed Benito 11 nominations this year, the figure was recently revealed at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.
“It won’t be ‘Un Verano Sin Bad Bunny’ in Sin City anymore,” a post on Madame Tussaud’s official Instagram reads. “[Bad Bunny] is at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas!”
The wax figure was designed to look like Bad Bunny during his appearance at the 2021 American Music Awards. It’s dressed in a white puffer coat, white tank top and pastel green pants. The display was also inspired by the album cover for 2020’s El Último Tour Del Mundo. The figure is set in front of a purple semi-truck with red and yellow flame decals.
“We’re revealing Bad Bunny’s figure today to not only celebrate his 11 nominations for the upcoming Latin American Music Awards, but to congratulate and honor him for being the first Latin artist to headline Coachella,” Gabriel Hewitt, General Manager for Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, said in a statement. “He’s having such an incredible year, and we’re excited to be a part of his success by revealing his third figure.”
According to Madame Tussauds, the new figure was created in six months by a team of 20 artists based in London. To complete the figure, the artists analyzed hundreds of videos and images to replicate Benito’s hair color and texture, eye color, skin tone and even nail shape.
Bad Bunny’s two other wax figures are on display at Madame Tussauds in New York City and Orlando. During the reveal in New York last year, Bad Bunny told Remezcla that getting a wax figure in his likeness “feels cabrón.”
