Russia's Live Statues Contest

Freeze!!!
These are pictures of contestants participating in a living statues contest held in the Russian city of Sochi. Imagine having to maintain the same pose for hours at a time! An occasional sudden movement would definitely scare an unsuspecting passer by.

  11. We have these guys all over the French Quarter in New Orleans. If you're not paying attention, you'd pass them by thinking it was a real statue. Of course the catch is they jump out to 'scare' you and want $5!!
