Let’s file this in the “if they can do this, so can YOU!” folder.
The headline says it all: ’Grumpy Cat’ now has a wax replica at Madame Tussauds in Washington DC. Do you understand the implications of this?
Some woman with a scowling cat, created a series of web postings that went so viral the cat has become and remains one of the most noted internet icons of all time.
It has also made a debut on Broadway after becoming famous for its iconic scowl. Yes, Grumpy Cat, the internet’s most famous scowling feline, not only unveiled a waxwork of herself this weekend, but also joined the cast of Broadway musical “Cats” to close out the show with some added “meow.”
Grumpy Cat, 4 years old, (and considering cats can go 15 to 20 years or more, meaning ‘longevity’ here ) posed next to a wax replica of herself at Madame Tussauds waxwork museum in Washington D.C. last week, before snapping photos with the museum’s other famous inhabitants, including former U.S. presidents Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.
When asked how Grumpy Cat was feeling, her owner Tabatha Bundesen said, “She was thrilled. As you can see, she’s still thrilled.”
After her visit to the nation’s capital, Grumpy Cat’s next stop was New York’s Broadway, where she was the guest of honour at Friday’s curtain call for Andrew Lloyd-Webber musical “Cats.”
She was cheered on by the cast on stage and the audience as she received a placard commemorating her Broadway debut.
Grumpy Cat, whose real name is Tardar Sauce, went viral in 2012 after her permanent scowl, which her owner said was caused by feline dwarfism, became meme-worthy fodder.
She has appeared in Lifetime movie “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever” in 2014 and also has picture books and plush toys modeled after her.
So, ask yourself, if a four year old scowling cat can become an internet sensation and generate amazing publicity and revenue…why can’t you? Why aren’t you? Seriously!
Do you need any other reasons to call BSG NOW!
