To mark the 25th anniversary of Jurassic Park, streaming service NOW TV has unveiled a Jurassic-sized sculpture of the film’s heartthrob Jeff Goldblum, in front of Tower Bridge – causing a stir amongst commuters and providing serious eye candy for any passers-by.
The Jurrasic Jeff sculpture plays homage to one of the film’s most iconic scenes…that unforgettable moment when Jeff Goldblum’s mathematician character – Dr. Ian Malcolm – took a sultry breather, with his shirt unbuttoned, after a Tyrannosaurus Rex attack.
Jeff’s torso has become an internet sensation over the years, with thousands of memes created and shared by millions around the world. Goldblum himself has spoken about the intense public reaction to the scene, explaining the seemingly unexplained reason his character needed to be topless: “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*.”
When asked about his thoughts on the many semi-naked memes made from the scene he said: “I admire them myself. It’s great, the human body is beautiful in all ways*.”
The 25ft long Jurrasic Jeff sculpture took six weeks to produce and 250 painstaking hours to make, at 3m high, he weighs in at 150kg.
NOW TV invites Jurassic park fans down to the lawns of Potters Field to soak up the sun in deck chairs with some ‘tors-ome’ views of Jeff.
