British teens swarmed iconic wax museum Madame Tussauds in London this weekend to snap photos with their favorite member of boy band One Direction -- or at least, their wax versions. The slightly-surreal fivesome are touring the tourist staple before ultimately moving on to the stateside version in New York City.  

Officials for Madame Tussauds reported that Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis, and Harry (yes, Harry Styles of "used to date Taylor Swift" fame) spent time with the museum's sculptors to ensure accuracy and a lifelike appearance. 

The boys of 1D will be at Madame Tussauds in London until mid-July, at which point they'll move onto to New York and Sydney.
