In a somewhat unexpected turn of events, a giant 25-foot statue of Jeff Goldblum has been erected in front of London’s iconic Tower Bridge.

The statue commemorates the 25-year anniversary of the cult classic film starring the actor, Jurassic Park.

NOW TV has recreated the infamous moment from Goldblum’s performance as the timeless Adonis, Dr. Ian Malcom - relaxed and seductive with his unbuttoned his shirt following.

The moment has gone down in movie history, and has inspired endless amounts of memes that have circulated on various social media sites.

The statue is three metres high and 25 feet long, emerging as a bizarre and hilarious addition to London’s skyline.

The uncanny homage to Goldblum took six weeks, an understandably long time when trying to perfectly capture one of Hollywood’s biggest stars.

Here's a picture of the sculpture being created: 

And of Goldblum's pug visitor, too: 

Fans of the franchise are being encouraged to head down to Potters Field in front of Tower Bridge to bask in all of Goldblum’s glory and to take selfies and picture in front of the infamous movie moment.

Following the creation of the hilarious memes and bizarre reaction to one of cinema’s most iconic moments, Goldblum has defended unbuttoning his shirt. According to Goldblum the intention behind his performance was that “It's supposed to be Costa Rica, right? So, things are hot and I’m sure I’m in some sort of fever. All the logic is that we got to get some of these wet clothes off immediately.”

Goldblum has seemingly taken the reaction to his performance well, even going on to laugh at the memes made from his performance. He jokingly admitted, “I admire them myself. It’s great, the human body is beautiful in all ways.”

The iconic role of Dr. Ian Malcom was reprised this year during the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, with Goldblum returning to the part.

You can now watch the original Jurassic World and catch the infamous moment for yourself on Sky Movies or on NOW TV.
