If you haven't already gazed upon the melty visage of this new Cristiano Ronald bust, please do so immediately. Then you'll have a better idea of why the internet is so into Photoshopping it.
Here's the thing: the sculpture, which debuted Wednesday at the Madeira Islands airport named in Ronaldo's honor, does not look like Ronaldo at all. And that, by the widely recognized Property of Internet Adoration, makes the internet adore it even more.
