Ronaldo Or Bust

Ronaldo Or Bust - News That Makes Us Feel Awkward

Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest active soccer players in the world, and he’s been celebrated accordingly. But a recent attempt at immortalizing him wound up confusing everyone.

Ronaldo’s hometown, the island of Madeira in Portugal, was honoring their favorite son by renaming the local airport after him. (He already has a museum and a hotel named after him there.) The ceremony included an unveiling of a bust of Ronaldo that would be displayed in the airport. But when the bust was unveiled, it barely resembled him:

Ouch.

As you might expect with a story involving an international celebrity and a plan that went awry, the Internet had a field day. This Twitter user imagined what Ronaldo would have to look like for the statue to be accurate:

We feel pretty bad for the statue designer, personally. Ronaldo, who plays for Real Madrid and models for Armani, will probably be just fine.

Ancient Hipstery

Ancient Hipstery - Awkward Galleries

Going to a museum and looking at ancient works of art can be a great way to connect with the distant past and the people who lived it. But for French artist Leo Caillard, classical statues made him think of one thing: hipsters.

It was during a 2012 trip to the Louvre when inspiration struck. The statues were already posed in positions resembling modern fashion models, so it wasn’t much of a leap to imagine them dressed in today’s hipster-approved finery.

“I chose to modernize the statues because they represent iconic people, gods and famous people from that period of time.” As he told NBC News. “And as soon as I dressed them up, they suddenly became … a regular cool guy that you could see anytime in the street.”

(We’re with him, although in our experience, few hipsters are as ripped as a Greek statue.)

In case you were wondering how he managed to convince the Louvre to let him dress up priceless antiquities, he didn’t; he photographed the statues and digitally added the clothes in Photoshop. Which is impressive, considering how real they look.

Check out this gallery of statues-turned-hipsters, and accompanying hipster jokes, below:

The Unflattering

The Unflattering - Family Portrait

“This picture is of me and my little sister on Easter in 2004. Evidently, my mother found it cute to dress me as if I were still 4-years-old. When a girl like me has hair like that, plus huge glasses, braces, a tiny headband and a frilly dress, it doesn’t work. My dad then honed in on his photo editing skills and gave us a very appropriate backdrop. All I can say is, ‘WTF?!'”
