SUBMITTED BY: Ilya Mirman LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2010) A shame that NBC weather guy and foodie Al Roker was immortalized by Madame Tussaud’s before his gastric bypass operation. It’s not easy to perfectly duplicate a jaw-numbing smile, but it looks like Ilya has a future career as a dental impressionist. (Rock concert photographer Ilya [...]

SUBMITTED BY: Tacky Tourist Photos LOCATION: London, England (2012) So maybe you can’t also be the Fastest Man on Earth, but you certainly can mimic his Greek mythology victory pose!
SUBMITTED BY: Tacky Tourist Photos LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2011) If a guy posed with the new Fergie wax museum statue like this, he might be chastised as sophomoric, crass, or perhaps even a little bit sexist. But when you are touching your fake self, it is amazing what you can get away with!
SUBMITTED BY: Al Kaufman LOCATION: New York, NY (2011) Beyonce’s “Heat” perfume was so hot that it was banned from the British airwaves. Maybe it’s time for the diva to launch her own deodorant? (Al Kaufman is an Atlanta music writer who avoids using the term “diva,” yet is pining for a Destiny’s Child reunion [...]
SUBMITTED BY: Ilya Mirman LOCATION: Pryor, Oklahoma (2011) Perhaps one of the country’s most prolific photographers of wax museum scenes (Jessica Simpson‘s patriotism, George Clooney‘s wedding, Tiger Woods‘ shenanigans, etc.), Ilya ironically stumbled across humans who pose like wax figures. The body language and facial expressions of the Gypsy Pistoleros almost seem too perfect, [...]
SUBMITTED BY: Alice S. LOCATION: Washington DC (2010) Wow. We’re speechless. Get ready for Season One of “News Junkies Gone Wild!” We haven’t seen wax museum behavior this crass since the “waxual harassment” of Jessica Simpson.
SUBMITTED BY: Tom Shattuck LOCATION: Washington DC (2010) Oh, the pickup lines that Tom could use with Jackie: “Hey, baby, you can hang that pillbox hat anywhere you’d like!” “Jackie, ask not what you can do for adultery, ask what adultery can do for you!” “I will pay any price, bear any burden, meet [...]
SUBMITTED BY: Darren G. LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2010) Are Mel Gibson’s movies SO good that we’re willing to overlook yet another batch of racist crap? It’s time to strangle Mr. Gibson where it hurts the most — his wallet. (Incidentally, the acting talent of the guy pretending to strangle the pretend actor is absolutely [...]
People Magazine just ran this photo of Elton John with its investigative report on why the singer would agree to perform at the Rush Limbaugh wedding. Apparently, for a $1 million appearance fee, Sir Elton will serenade you first and have intellectual debates on gay marriages and civil unions over drinks later. Smart guy. But [...]
Amy Ferris, the witty and irreverent author of “Marrying George Clooney: Confessions of a Midlife Crisis,” strives to “encourage women to fulfill their greatness: to be bold, audacious, extraordinary and beautiful.” She’s also an enthusiastic fan of Tacky Tourist Photos, which we happen to believe are also bold, audacious, extraordinary and beautiful. We’re delighted to [...]
If you love the “Marrying George Clooney” slideshow, you probably wish you knew the motivation and mindset of each bride. Wish granted. For the first time ANYWHERE, here are the voices of George Clooney’s brides! (If you have recently married or committed adultery with a wax celebrity, please share the incriminating photos with us!)
Warning: What you are about to see in the following slideshow may horrify you. You will see polygamy. You will see violence. You will even see brides with hairy arms and Hawaiian shirts. But what might be the most shocking thing of all is that this Las Vegas wedding chapel offers only one size and [...]
Take a look at Tacky Tourist Photos co-founder and curator Darren Garnick in the picture above. Sure, he’s one of the world’s most knowledgeable authorities on kitschy travel snapshots. But even he can occasionally forget the basics. There’s nothing particularly bad about this photo, but there’s nothing especially creative about it either. The best Tacky [...]
SUBMITTED BY: Heather Wang LOCATION: Las Vegas, Nevada (2009) In retrospect, it should have been obvious that Tiger Woods had much more on his mind on the golf course. Look at that gaze. We suspect he isn’t thinking about what par this hole is — or that he even cares that this woman has a [...]
SUBMITTED BY: Rachel and Steve Moore LOCATION: Branson, Missouri (2009) Rachel and her brother Steve weren’t looking for a religious experience when they hit the Hollywood Wax Museum in Branson. Most of the museum met their expectations (Forrest Gump on a bench, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, etc.), but the glowing room with the Pope and organ [...]
