Troy Polamalu At Wax Museum: Steelers Star Scares Patrons By Posing As Statue At Madame Tussauds (VIDEO)

While his intimidating appearance and vicious hits on the field may lead one to believe that Troy Polamalu is a hardened football assassin, it seems that off the field, the all-pro safety definitely has a lighter side.

In a commercial for Head & Shoulders, a company for which Polamalu has done tremendous work in the past, the Steelers safety went to Madame Tussauds wax museum in Los Angeles and posed as himself -- then came to life after he was approached by an unknowing patron. The reactions are about what you'd expect: shock, horror and touching his luscious hair.

The funny stunt got laughs all-around and showed off a lighter side of one of the most intimidating players in the league. All in all, it seems like when he's not hitting guys into next week, Troy Polamalu is a fairly affable guy.
