Carmelo Anthony Poses in Wax Museum, Scares Visitors (Video)


As sports fans we idolize superstars, but often from far away. We watch our favorite athletes on TV screens, or see them live from the bleacher seats. But have you ever wondered, what it would be like to actually see them up close and personal?

Some New York Knicks fans recently realized they can't even tell the difference between the real Carmelo Anthony and a wax model of the Knicks All-Star.

Anthony replaced his wax twin at Madame Tussauds in New York, keeping absolutely still while posing in place with a basketball. When visitors to the museum got close up though, he yelled and jumped out at them, scaring the unsuspecting victims.

Immediately after coming alive, Anthony then greeted people and even posed for pictures. Safe to say that it was worth the fright for these fans to meet the Knicks icon. And it was worth it for us too, because some of their reactions are priceless.

Check out the video below, with a hat tip to SportsGrid.
