Stand out star of America’s Got Talent and Penn & Teller’s Fool Us, Piff the Magic Dragon, recently unveiled his shrunken head, created exclusively for The Golden Tiki’s Cabinet of Curiosities at The Golden Tiki. He was joined by his sidekick Mr. Piffles, who also received a miniature stuffed version of himself alongside Piff’s shrunken head.
Piff ate a Dole Whip as he perused the bar’s decor and the famous Cabinet of Curiosities.
The Baron of the Universe welcomed Piff, Mr. Piffles and showgirl Jade Simone before Managing Partner Branden Powers unveiled the head. The head was sculpted by Smithsonian artist Terry Barr, who spent four weeks creating the piece of art, referencing photos of Piff to ensure physical accuracies, including the dragon scales he wears.
“Thank you for honoring us with a tiny, shrunken head, AKA a life-size head,” said Piff.
During the evening, Piff took a “Shelfie” in the clamshell, before posing with fans.
Chippendales dancer James Davis was also in attendance.
Piff joins the bar’s collection of shrunken heads, including Marky Ramone of The Ramones, Carrot Top, Frank Marino, Robin Leach, Norm Clarke, Claire Sinclair, magician Murray SawChuck, Vinnie Paul of Pantera, Chris Phillips of Zowie Bowie, Monti Rock III, Lonnie Hammargren and Rich Little.
If you want to see Piff and his regular size head, you can find discounted tickets to his hit show here on Best of Vegas. The show blends comedy with magic and of course the World’s Only Magic Performing Chihuahua for a production that’s perfect for Vegas. Piff the Magic Dragon runs Sunday through Wednesday at the Flamingo 8 p.m.
