Austin Mahone had a little fun at his fans’ expense this weekend at Madame Tussauds in Orlando.
Dressed as a pudgy employee with mustache, wig, hat, apron and more, Mahone offered to take photos with fans as they were posing next to his wax figure, all while they had no idea it was actually the singer in disguise. A group of young fans, affectionately known as Mahomies, were randomly selected to be among the first to meet Mahone’s figure under the guise of a promotional photo shoot, explains the tourist attraction in a release.
“I had a great time today pretending to be a Madame Tussauds employee!” said Mahone. “I loved seeing my fans’ faces as they were looking at the figure, and then back to me. Their reactions were priceless! I have some of the best fans in world!”
Mahone had previously unveiled his wax likeness at the Madame Tussauds in New York City before it was transported to Orlando, Florida where it will be display inside the music room.
