Madame Tussauds Sydney will honour ‘Karen’ with a new wax figure, being unveiled today, 1 April 2021.
Or at least we wish that was the case.
In a good-humoured April Fool’s prank, the Sydney attraction said with Karens – those who like to speak to the manager and make complaints – rising to global fame over the past 12 months, it was only natural to pay tribute.
“Karen will be complete with the signature asymmetrical bob and highlights, she’ll have acrylic nails and over-sized sunnies, but what will really bring Karen to life will be that she’s a talking figure and we’re calling on the public to help us select what she’ll say,” said team member Mikayla McGlone.
All jokes aside, Madame Tussauds Sydney is giving anyone named Karen free entry between 1 April – 4 April 2021.
That part is true.
