Hot Guy Gets Public Body Wax At Toronto Pride: VIDEO

Wax

Anyone attending Toronto Pride may have gotten a glimpse of a once hairy man who was wearing nothing but sunglasses, sandals, and body wax strips that covered him over his entire body. Anyone who wanted to could pull any one of the strips, both removing his hair in that area and revealing a coupon for 25% off to Fuzz WaxBar.

Each strip also featured a cartoon face indicating the level of pain it would inflict on the brave model, in addition to humorous quips like "From bear arms to bare arms," "We'll take the monkey off your back," and "You'll walk a little differently." 

For those who were not fortunate enough to witness the publicity stunt (devised by marketing co. Lowe Roche) in person, feel free to check out the highlight video AFTER THE JUMP...

Zac Efron Attacked By Older Man; Hideous Wax Twin Left Alone

Waxzac

Madame Tussaud's unveiled a rather ashen wax figure of Zac Efron in London yesterday. Then again, Halloween approaches. Perhaps it's the zombie version. Meanwhile, the real thing was nearby in Leicester Square promoting High School Musical 3.

And he was attacked by an older man while leaving a West End Theatre last night:

"An onlooker said: 'Some guy was just stood near the door where Zac and Vanessa emerged. He just reached over and grabbed the side of Zac's head. There was no provocation. It all turned into a bit of a mess. He was shouting all kinds of things at Zac. Their security team eventually dealt with it. They had to bundle Zac into a car, but at one point it looked as though the man was going to be pushed into it with him.'"

Amy Winehouse: Back to Wax

Winehouse

A wax figure of Amy Winehouse was unveiled today at Madame Tussaud's in Central London.

The singer herself was not there to see the strikingly sober version of herself, but her parents Mitch and Janis were.

Earlier this month, Winehouse expressed dissatisfaction that she was being turned into a waxwork.

Said the singer, in perhaps the most prescient quote of the year: "I thought you had to be dead almost before they made a wax of you."

Wax Beckhams Open Kissing Booth at DC's Cherry Blossom Festival

Waxbeckhams

As part of a promotion for the 2008 Cherry Blossom Soccer Tournament, wax versions of David and Victoria Beckham opened a 'kissing booth' near the Mall in DC.

The last time the stiff couple made a headlining appearance was in December 2004 in a celebrity nativity scene. At that appearance, an attacker punched the figures, damaging them, and then fled. It appears they've recovered quite well from their injuries, but they are looking just as stiff.
