(PCM) Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is incredibly famous for both this skills on the soccer field and his movie star good looks. That is why the internet is losing its’ mind over the recent unveiling of a bronze bust sculpture of Ronaldo that thankfully looks nothing like him, but just so happens to be horribly creepy. We don’t know what it is with these bronze sculptors who just can’t seem to get it right. Remember, Scary Lucille Ball? Need we say more? Perhaps the Ronaldo sculpture is even worse!
The horrendous statue was revealed during a celebration in Ronaldo’s hometown of Funchal, Portugal where the town’s airport is being named after him and the statue was put in place. While this was a lovely gesture, something tells us that this statue will not be in place for very long. Seriously, it looks nothing like Ronaldo at all! Check it out! Truly horrifying!

We don’t see how anyone could have thought that this was a good idea in the first place and then to let it go on full public display, well you know the internet is going to have a field day memeing this one to death. Let’s look at a picture of Ronaldo standing next to the bust. One can only imagine the range of emotions that are going through his head when the image was snapped. He is probably thinking he should just reach behind and knock that thing straight off its’ pedestal or maybe he might just want to cry!
