The Internet is bleeding out into real life, by which we mean Youtube stars are starting to become real celebrities.

First Bethany Mota competed on Dancing With the Stars, then Shane Dawson made a feature film, and now comedy duo Smosh are getting their own movie. But all of that pales in comparison to the honor about to be bestowed upon YouTube star Jenna Marbles.

Jenna is getting her own wax figure at Madame Tussauds in New York City!

The legendary wax museum announced the news on Thursday, revealing that they've been working with Jenna to capture her likeness since the beginning of summer, and that she will be the first wax figure in their collection who will be posed like she’s taking a selfie.

Jenna has a staggering 15 million followers and over 1.8 billion combined views on YouTube, so it's not shocking that she would be selected for immortalization in wax. But we can't help but imagine how many other (possibly lesser?) YouTube stars will be making their way into wax museums across the country in the near future.
