Are you physically and psychologically prepared to love Jeff Goldblum more than you already do? Ready yourself. The actor/icon/meme/myth, who is reprising his role in the forthcoming Independence Day: Resurgence, just played an entire jazz concert in Los Angeles for charity *swoons and dies*.
As Goldblum explains in the lovely Facebook Live video below, the concert, which incorporates Independence Day skits and trivia, launched Omaze’s current Goldblum-filled campaign, whose proceeds go to support Oceana and Conservation International. Because if aliens aren’t responsible for the mass of destruction of earth, we all have a pretty good guess of who will be. Plus, if you win the contest, you could spend some one-on-one time with the King Jeffy and witness a VIP advanced screening of the new Independence Day. Pretty snazzy, eh?
I assure you, the above performance is an hour and a half of worthwhile entertainment that you should watch in its entirety, and if you are visiting or live in Los Angeles, make a point to see Goldblum’s live show on select Wednesday evenings at the Rockwell in Los Feliz. My evidence? Look how happy the entire Nerdist editorial staff was after a night with the bless-ed ‘Blum, praise be he. Those smiles of unbridled joy remained on our faces for a solid 72 hours after this photo was taken.
So let’s return the favor and make him smile by checking out Omaze’s campaign. Long live earth; long live Jeff Goldblum.
Hey you, wanna see Jeffy G sing a fake theme song for Independence Day?
