How do you know you’ve made it?
According to fame semiotics there are three major indicators that mean you’ve hit the big time: (1) your own Wikipedia article (Note: must be written about you, not by you); (2) becoming the subject of a LOL photoshop meme; and (3) your likeness is re-imagined as a giant candle as part of a multimillion dollar tourist attraction.
Next year a new venue of said tourist attraction Madame Tussauds is opening at Sydney’s Darling Harbour and will feature more than 70 wax figures including Australia’s most powerful bald man Ray Meagher. Alf Stewart will be painstakingly sculpted in wax and stand beside fellow local celebs like Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman, and international stars like Lady Gaga.
Just one more reason for British Home And Away fans to visit our fine country.
