Hurry! You Too Can Have Your Own Life-Size Nicki Minaj Cutout From Finland

What is this even all about?

Shelli Weinstein

There's a menagerie of Minaj in, of all places, Helsinki, Finland.

One thousand life-size standup cutouts of Nicki Minaj's eye-catching "Anaconda" cover were discovered outside of a Helsinki cathedral earlyWednesday morning, and no, it's not an "F--- you" to the church or an attempt at booty-themed street art.

It's just a good ol'-fashioned publicity stunt.

Minaj will be performing her first-ever show in Finland at the Summer Up Festival in July, and to promote her arrival, 100 of the cardboard Nickis have tickets "mounted" on their "back sides," according to the Helsingin Uutiset (and Google Translate).

Passers-by are also encouraged to take a Nicki home, and to the festival, "as the organizers hope to see as many cardboard dolls regular gig, in order to surprise artists."

Why not? That's....definitely some kind of surprise...

Can't get yourself to Helsinki to get your own cutout? Don't worry, you can follow all of Nicki's cardboard adventures on Instagram with the hashtag #mynicki.
