Just to show everyone in the world how much Hong Kong cares about the new president it seems that Madame Tussauds up on The Peak has already unveiled their own President Barack Obama wax statue.

Amidst the fanfare of patriotic American citizens living in Hong Kong, and under the patronage of special guests Dr Richard Vuylsteke, President, American Chamber of Commerce and Dr Dekai Wu, Vice Chair of Democrats Abroad, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong unveiled President Barack Obama’s wax figure, the newest permanent addition to the “world famous home of the famous”.  Eight Barack Obama wax figures were made for Madame Tussauds, the other one in Asia being in Shanghai.
