Buckle up, dear readers, this is a weird one. Earlier this week, a giant semi-clothed statue of Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park was installed in London in front of the Tower Bridge in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the first movie’s premiere in the U.K. Why? It’s unclear. As people were quick to point out, none of the film was shot in the U.K. nor is Jeff Goldblum from the country.

But if you think lack of logic is going to stop the internet from thoroughly enjoying something, you obviously haven’t been here very long.

It turns out the statue was a publicity stunt executed by European streaming service and telecommunications company Now TV. According to the company, the statue was available for public consumption on the lawns next to the Thames until “dinner time” Wednesday. Honestly, we were kind of hoping that this piece of artwork would hang around forever and become its own symbol of London on par with Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. The Eiffel Tower is to Paris what the 25-foot Jeff Goldblum statue is to London.

The exhibit even drew a celebrity crowd. Actress Aubrey Plaza visited “Jurassic Jeff” and couldn’t keep her hands off him.

We still have a tonne of questions, but the most important one is: what does one do with a giant sexy Jeff Goldblum statue after the fact?

Followup question: can we have it?
