Sir Elton John (CDs) has aspired to the ultimate celebrity accolade – no, not the privilege of wiping Bono’s arse – he’s been recreated in a big lump of chocolate. And they say money’s short these days.
London wax museum Madame Tussauds decided to make the completely devoid of reasoning statue out of Cadbury Dairy Milk bars.
“It certainly looks like him” commented Elton’s fella David Furnish. “They’ve captured his features and his spirit.”
A thousand-odd man-hours went into forming the tasty Elton, and that’s not a phrase banded about too often.
“I think Elton will be delighted." Furnish added.
We’re sure he will too.
Being as Elton John is now starting to resemble Terry Scott in a tunic, we can only hope Cadbury decide to foil wrap the camp crusader and flog him in newsagents.
Then again, having Elton destined to fill a mid-morning hole does sound a bit like a niche market to us.
