If you’ve ever been to London, you’ll know that this city is a thriving metropolis of hipsters, businesspeople, Keira Knightley, Tom Hardy, and rooftop bars. While these are the most important factors, when visiting the city of London it’s important to also take in the sights. After all, can you really say you went to London without taking a selfie in front of Buckingham Palace or snuggling up to a royal guard in one of those funny hats you could definitely see on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week? We think not. If you’re in London right now, you should probably add a new tourist attraction to your list, because there’s a 25ft statue of Jeff Goldblum currently slouching next to Tower Bridge…
Yes, this is a real thing. No, you’re not just having an amazing dream. It’s no secret that we love the legend that is Jeff Goldblum here at RetroEnt, and we’re actually pretty sad that we won’t be there to see his holiness in all of his glory – so can someone send us a picture? Better yet, can you just scoop him up and send him to us? Great, thanks.
This new addition to the London skyline has set up shop next to the iconic Tower Bridge to celebrate that fact that Jurassic Park is now a whopping 25 years old. Wow, does that make anyone else feel totally ancient? This sultry statue was commissioned by the streaming network, NOW TV, who decided that they wanted to use Dr. Malcolm as a marketing technique for the anniversary of the franchise. Naturally, they couldn’t just have a regular statue like the ones used in Madame Tussauds. These guys needed to create something that would get people hot under the collar. So, they made him a giant and allowed his chest hair to break free like Troy and Gabriella!
This incredible piece of art took 150 kg worth of material to look as awesome as it does, and if you’re wondering what that is in British lingo – that’s around the weight of 48,000 teabags! I mean, our day really couldn’t get any better right now.
