MILWAUKEE — Famous Wisconsinite Charlie Berens has been immortalized as a bobblehead.

The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum unveiled a limited edition bobblehead of Berens, who gained attention for his viral "Manitowoc Minute" videos. The bobblehead features Berens in his signature camouflage jacket, black boots, and a baseball cap branded with the word "OPE." He's standing on a base shaped like the state of Wisconsin, which bears his famous catch phrase, "Keep 'er movin'."
