LOS ANGELES, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu frightened visitors to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Los Angeles by posing as a wax sculpture.

Polamalu, whose hijinks were filmed as a viral advertisement for Head & Shoulders, posed as a wax sculpture at the famous museum, which is filled with wax statues of celebrities and historical figures, and would occasionally move to terrify museum visitors, NFL.com reported Thursday.

The video depicts several patrons being frightened by Polamalu, including one woman who shoved the player, Syracuse.com reported.

The Steelers All-Pro's hair, which he said he hasn't cut since 2000 as a tribute to his Samoan heritage, is currently insured for $1 million by Head & Shoulders.
