Austin Woolstenhulme (known as Austin Milan on Instagram) and her friends were visiting Vegas when they received a message from the Real Madrid star informing them that he was in possession of Austin’s phone.
Football icon Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t help but admire his life-size “cyber clone” at a public function in Tokyo yesterday. Athletes and actors from Europe and America take down the big money to shill products there, and part of the deal is often that those ads and endorsements are never shown in their home countries, presumably to avoid uncomfortable exposure such as this.
Ronaldo, the reigning world footballer of the year, has legions of fans who swoon over his chiselled looks and muscular physique, which he regularly shows off by removing his shirt to celebrate goals.
The Portuguese star was literally confronted with the strangeness of Japanese marketing, head on when he made a promotional appearance with this “House of Wax” like 3D printed replica of himself in Tokyo.
I don’t quite understand how this device works, but Cristiano Ronaldo is shirtless, so it’s all good with me.
While clearly impressive and capable of moving its face thanks to animatronic bits inside it, the dummy in question looks to me like as soon as everyone leaves the room it breaks down crying. From what I can gather, you just attach it to your body, hang out and it does all the ab workouts for you. “It’s ideal. I love it”.
