In these troubling times, it is always good to remember milestones of the past…
…such as the time a 25ft-long statue of Jeff Goldblum appeared in London!
I swear I’m not making this up – it really happened!
The statue – dubbed ‘Jurassic Jeff’ – sat alongside Tower Bridge. It was installed in the city back in 2018 to celebrate 25 years of Jurassic Park (1993).
Was the statue the result of a higher power? Was it the result of genetic engineering? Was it meant to signal the dawning of the Age of Goldblum?!
The statue was installed by NOW TV simply as a really cool, really bitchin’ ad campaign. Heck, what better way to celebrate a Jurassic Park anniversary (and promote the movie’s availability on NOW TV) than with a 25ft Jeff Goldblum?!
25ft… 25 years… can you see the connection?
Speaking at the time of the installation, a Twitter post on the official NOW TV Instagram account read:
“Can you believe #JurassicPark is 25 years old? To celebrate, we’ve created a Jurassic-sized homage to heartthrob Jeff Goldblum.”
And what a homage. What a magnificent homage indeed.
Who needs dinosaurs when you have Dr. Ian Malcolm sprawled in front of Tower Bridge?
Sadly, ‘Jurassic Jeff’ is no longer a fixture of London life – he was removed a long time ago. NOW TV were so preoccupied with whether they could remove him, they didn’t stop to think if they should.
Let us never forget.
