Troy Polamalu frightens fans as fake wax sculpture

troy polamalu wax sculpture gag

(CBS) - The ol' pretend-to-be-a-wax-sculpture gag. Gets 'em every time. It's not much of a stretch to say that Troy Polamalu is one of the most likable players in the NFL - and certainly one of the most recognizable. But that didn't stop fans and tourists from walking up to what they thought was a wax replica of the famous strong safety at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood.

The Head and Shoulders spokesman seems to be having a good time in the clip. And the fans are definitely amused - that is, after they recover from the 200-plus pound footballer coming to life in their arms.
