For many right now, the true shining light of the coronavirus pandemic has been Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and everyone’s favorite member of President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 taskforce.
Royal Bobbles is celebrating Fauci with a new bobblehead, and $5 from each figure sold is being donated to The Center for Disaster Philanthropy COVID-19 Relief Fund.
The physician has become the voice of the country’s response to the pandemic — a voice with a heavy Brooklyn accent that tells things as they are. People all around the world have embraced his tough demeanor, and it’s echoed in the finger-pointing of the bobblehead. The figure perfectly reflects his balance of a tough, yet calming nature with just a hint of sass.
More than 23,000 people have signed a petition to make Fauci People Magazine’s sexiest man alive this year. While we’re not sure if he’ll win that, there’s no doubt that he’s won all of our hearts.
The collectible means he can stay in our minds and on our bookshelves even when the pandemic is behind us. It will available sometime in the late summer or early fall, but you can preorder the hunky hero now for $29.95.
