Character Part Of ‘The Hangover Experience’
Mike Tyson stood toe-to-toe with himself. And didn’t back down or blink an eye.
That’s because the real Mike Tyson was standing next to a wax figure of Mike Tyson, the latest figure to be featured at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas.
The figure is modeled after Tyson in the movie The Hangover which was, of course, filmed in Vegas.
Phil Collins’ “In The Air Tonight” played as the curtain dropped, revealing Tyson’s figure at the attraction in the Venetian Hotel.
Tyson donated the figure’s black slacks, white collared short, crocodile shoes and his “favorite” herringbone and houndstooth jacket. The figure is permanently on display inside the attraction’s The Hangover Experience and positioned next to his tiger, which is trapped inside the movie’s hotel bathroom.
The Hangover Experience is Madame Tussauds’ newest themed room, based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Hangover. Launched on National Hangover Day, Jan. 1, 2015, the display has the notorious hotel room, a smashed replica of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police car and the wedding chapel as seen in the film.
The room also features two additional character figures from The Hangover Trilogy, “Alan” (played by Zach Galifianakis) and “Phil” (played by Bradley Cooper).
