This Might Be The Weirdest Statue Ever

Funny |

It’s the 25th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, a now-classic film that has gone on to inspire multiple sequels and spin-offs, none of which can even remotely compete with the groundbreaking first movie. To honor the original cinematic masterpiece, NOW TV has revealed a giant statue of Jeff Goldblum. The company also wants to promote their subscription package, which includes Jurassic Park.

And it’s not just a normal statue, it’s a giant, lifelike recreation of one of his most iconic scenes. Late in the story, an injured Goldblum is seen in this pose delivering some great dialogue. The incredible sight has been constructed on London’s South Bank, right in front of Tower Bridge at Potter’s field, and took over a month and a half, about 250 hours, to build.

When asked why his characters didn’t wear a shirt, a decision the actor made, Goldblum said, “It’s supposed to be Costa Rica, right? So things are hot and I’m sure I’m in some sort of fever. So all the logic is that we got to get some of these wet clothes off immediately. As I remember, I don’t think anybody fought me on that.”

The statue, which has been dubbed Jurassic Jeff, is 25ft tall and weighs 330 pounds. And it’s getting the exact amount of attention you’d expect. People have been stopping to take pictures and make hilarious videos referencing various scenes from the movie. Some have even flocked to the park with chairs and blankets just to sit and look at it. Many probably wonder why this particular spot was chosen, a fair question that doesn’t seem to have an answer. But we do know this...
