Why this petition matters

Started by WaxPaulNow

Fans of WaxPaulNow know that what started as a really important request for a wax statue of Paul Giamatti has turned into an immensely important request for freedom, for democracy, for our voices to be heard. We have fought the good fight for months now, and our vision has been featured on Buzzfeed, The A.V. Club, and on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. 

But at the core of our movement is a simple idea: that the iconic Mr. Paul Edward Valentine Giamatti be enshrined in wax forever, dwelling in the halls of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. And by signing this petition, you can make it a reality.

If we reach 500,000 signatures, Madame Tussauds has promised us they would fulfill our wildest dreams. 500,000 signatures, and we get Paul his wax. 

Why Paul, you ask? Precisely what makes Mr. Giamatti so perfectly suited for a wax statue is his flawless ability to effortlessly blend into any and all settings and situations. He could successfully masquerade as Beyonce’s cutthroat agent (a la his role as Marty Wolf in 2002’s Big Fat Liar). If an additional character is needed for a Disney themed showing, who could forget Paul’s notable turn as Ralph the chauffeur in 2014’s Saving Mr. Banks (a performance that will not soon be written out of history, of this much we are sure). If they had a lost child in the museum, they could simply position said child next to wax Paul Giamatti, creating the illusion of a loving father standing casually next to his offspring, while waiting for the parents to find them. 

Of course, none of this is to imply that Mr. Giamatti could not star as the central attraction in a room all to himself; that he could! His is the face customers will remember as they exit the museum and continue about their days, wondering to themselves, “Why hasn't the Academy given him his due recognition?”, “HBO’s John Adams was so good, does 1776 deserve a Broadway revival?”, and “How incredible is it that Paul Giamatti starred in San Andreas and Straight out of Compton in the same calendar year! Madame Tussauds, I wholeheartedly agree with your decision to reward an actor of such breadth, talent, and humility a spot in your museum.”  

Helen Keller once said, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched -- they must be felt with the heart." While the spirit of Ms. Keller’s quotation is no doubt a touching one, today we must provide a counterargument. The best and most beautiful thing is in fact something that could be seen and touched. By that, of course, we mean a wax statue of Paul Giamatti. 


Sign our petition, make a change. Get Paul his wax. #WaxPaulNow
