Celebrity fetishism can be an intense experience for hardcore fans. For the die-hard fans of Sylvester Stallone, it just might be a lucky day. A couple in Australia came across a rare find of a Sylvester Stallone movie statue on sale for $4,000 in an antique store. If you need a naked idol to worship the actor, this item might be worth splurging on for your home decor.
Ceramicist, Bae Bellingham, was exploring antique shops and was caught off guard by the naked latex replica of Stallone. Bellingham said: “My husband and I were away for a couple of nights in Katoomba. It’s a kooky village and the Katoomba Vintage Emporium is probably their kookiest antique store. Downstairs I took a picture of a weird screaming doll and thought ‘yep, that’s the weirdest find of the day.'”
Although nudity and ropes can evoke erotic cinematic memories of Fifty Shades Of Grey, fans of the actor immediately recognized the statue from the 1993 action movie Demolition Man. The dummy model resembles Stallone’s character, John Spartan, and is put into cryogenic stasis.
Twitter user Adam Howes agreed with the fans. Howes wrote: “During the ’90s, prop versions of Sylvester Stallone’s cryogenically frozen character in ‘Demolition Man’ hung from the ceilings of Planet Hollywood restaurants. Now a defrosted John Spartan has surfaced in an Australian country town.”
Bellingham added that the statue was a “car wreck you simply can’t look away from.” One lucky buyer can wake up to this view every morning as a naked celebrity statue can elevate the aesthetic appeal of any dull home. Guests are guaranteed to leave the house speechless.
