Why has a submarine mysteriously appeared in the middle of Hollywood? Our favorite Hollywood Wax Museum employee, Joseph, has some answers!
It’s not every day you see a submarine breaking through cement at Hollywood & Highland center! YES, you are reading correctly…I couldn’t believe my eyes either! Turns out this was FX Network’s imaginative way of promoting its much-anticipated series The Americans that premiered last Wednesday. After checking out the massive replica of a Cold War era Soviet submarine – complete with USSR propaganda and Russian soldiers – I immediately added the show to my DVR recordings. It’s quite a thriller!!
Set in the 1980’s, Phillip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) appear to be a typical American couple living in Washington DC with their two kids. In reality, they are both KGB spies!!! Side note: Do any of you remember the WB hit Felicity starring Keri Russell? Well let me tell you, she’s a far cry from a sweet and lovable character in “The Americans”!
I had just enough time to walk over during my lunch break from The Hollywood Wax Museum and snap some photos of the scene. Felt like I was right in the middle of the Cold War – very eery with all those Soviet soldiers marching around the courtyard. I’d guess the promotion was quite a success – it definitely caught my eye!!
Secrets, spies and lots of action…sounds intriguing, Joseph! Thanks for the full report! Will you be watching “The Americans” tonight at 10pm on FX Network?
