If you spotted a Tyrannosaurus rex corpse stuck in London traffic this morning, you weren’t imagining things. A life-size replica dinosaur was traveling across the city on a flatbed truck, and it didn’t have anything to do with Jurassic World.
The city’s official traffic news Twitter account was one of the first to post a photo of the replica dino, showing its body partially hidden by a blood-stained sheet.
More photos began to appear as people noticed the T-Rex truck, which turned out to be a marketing stunt for National Geographic.
You’ve got to admit that it was an effective PR trick. There’s nothing like the sudden appearance of a dinosaur to liven up everyone’s Monday morning.
