Yes, you read that headline. Seemingly out of nowhere, a 25-foot statue of a half-naked Jeff Goldblum has popped up in London in front of the Tower Bridge.
Apparently, the statue was installed at the location by UK streaming service Now TV to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of 1993's Jurassic Park in the United Kingdom. More specifically, it references a memorable scene in the movie when his character Dr. Ian Malcolm unbuttons his shirt while lounging around after surviving a T-Rex attack. With the latest art piece, it is safe to say Goldblum's scene-stealing decision is forever enshrined in the meme hall of fame.
The statue will certainly cause some double takes from commuters across the pond. Imagine strolling around town and stumbling upon this. Even those unfamiliar with the reference cannot help but marvel at the machismo oozing from this installation. It won't be around forever, so anyone living or vacationing in London right now should definitely make getting a photo in front of this giant meme a top priority. This guy had the right idea:
Goldblum has reprised his role as Dr. Malcolm this summer. He can be seen on the silver screen making cameos in the latest addition to the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which is currently showing in theaters around the globe.
