Take the Bernie Sanders meme home with you!
Bernie Sanders socially distanced himself from the Inauguration festivities and attempted to keep warm with his gray jacket and brown snow mittens. By the end of the event, he took the Internet by storm as people all over the world photoshopped him into some of the most memorable scenes of pop culture, television, and film. Now, Bernie's moving off the Internet and coming straight to your home in the form of an all-new collectible bobblehead.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum took advantage of the viral Sanders meme and created a bobblehead that features the Vermont senator's infamous coat, mittens, and chair. The bobblehead is a collectible that is individually numbered and great for any collection. You can pre-order the collector's item for $25 on the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum's website or by calling 800-414-1482. It is expected to ship to homes in May 2021.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is located at 170 S. 1st St. 2nd Floor in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The museum is known for turning viral memes and situations into hilarious keepsakes. For example, back in October, the museum recreated the viral moment when a fly landed on former Vice President Mike Pence's head. Fans can still buy the Pence bobblehead to place on the shelf next to the new Bernie one.
The bobblehead is not the first piece of merchandise to come out of Bernie's viral meme. The Bernie Sanders campaign is also capitalizing on the meme by selling an official sweatshirt that features the slouched senator. Other fans of the meme have also turned the image into crochet dolls and even nail art.
