Carmelo Anthony shocked museum visitors this week when he posed as a wax figure of himself in Madam Tussaud’s waxwork museum. The Knicks player tried to stay completely still in the New York wax museum to prank visitors.

When visitors would stop to admire the wax statue, Anthony would start moving.

I do some acting, but that was probably one of the toughest acting jobs to do, because it’s right on the spot.

You’ve got people coming up close to you, wanting to touch you, and you just scare them.

In the video, Anthony is seen holding out his hand to fans, saying “How you doing? I just came alive.”

The video was filmed yesterday when a waxwork of Anthony was unveiled at the museum.

Anthony, who is from Brooklyn, said that the honor was “at the top of [his] list.”

This is the No. 1 thing. I never imagined representing New York like this.
