It's been a full 21 years since the release of Steven Spielberg's original Jurassic Park, but the magic has not disappeared from the film one iota since its release. Certainly helping maintain the film's iconic stature in pop culture is John Williams' amazing score, which is an inclusion on every list of great cinematic music. Now, however, that classic theme has gotten a lyric-covered update, and the man spreading the good word about it is none other than Dr. Ian Malcolm himself, Jeff Goldblum.
As you can see in the video embed above, the actor was a guest this week on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and one hallmark moment of his appearance was when he got the entire crowd to "sing the lyrics" to John Williams' Jurassic Park theme. Goldblum didn't actually write the song himself, instead giving that credit to someone from the internet he couldn't identify, but he certainly is popularizing it. In case you can't follow along, the song goes,
In Jurassic Park,
scary in the dark,
I'm so scared that I'll be eaten
While this is certainly a fun little tune that's both funny and silly, I personally prefer the more-adult version of the lyrics first created years ago by YTMND. This is definitely not safe for work, so keep your speakers low if your boss is around.
Of course, as entertaining as both of these videos are, nothing actually beats John Williams' epic and beautiful score, which I've included out of pure necessity below.
While this is certainly helping create a fun buzz about the series, the Jurassic Park franchise is on the road toward getting a big boost, as Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World has completed filming and is now in post-production. In addition to starring Chris Pratt - who is probably still experiencing a head rush from his quick upgrade to the A-list following the release of Guardians of the Galaxy - the blockbuster sequel also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Nick Robinson, Irrfan Khan, Ty Simpkins, BD Wong, and Omar Sy. The film is scheduled to be released by Universal Pictures on June 12, 2015, which means that we probably won't actually see a trailer for the movie until much later in the year. Still, be sure to stay tuned in the coming months, as we are sure to get plenty of cool teases of dino action.
