London has many fine sights for tourists: There’s London Bridge, the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, and now…there’s a giant statue of an almost-shirtless Jeff Goldblum.

Yes, you read that correctly. On Wednesday a huge statue of a the Jurassic Park actor appeared on the banks of the River Thames by London’s Tower Bridge. The 25-foot statue depicts Goldblum lounging in black pants and an unbuttoned black shirt in a reenactment of his iconic and often meme’d pose from the 1993 dino flick. Rather than a random act of civic generosity, the statue is actually a savvy publicity stunt by Now TV to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the beloved franchise.
