JURASSIC WORLD Gets the Action-Packed Pun it Deserves in Jurassic Parkour

I am so disappointed in all of us. I mean, it was right there! For more than 20 years it was just begging for us to put the pieces of the puzzle together, and for some inexplicable reason we could not do it.

Jurassic Parkour.

Oh my god…how did we miss that one!

Fortunately for all of us our long national nightmare is over, thanks director Devin Graham and the rest of the folks at Teamsupertramp, who were inspired by Jurassic World to finally give us the perfect pun-related installment the franchise has clearly always needed.

You can watch the entire short film right here.

We first came across this awesome looking video at Tastefully Offensive, and that’s Calen Chan in the Chris Pratt role, running from a much smaller, but far more nimble (and inflatable) Tyrannosaurus rex, played by fellow parkour athlete Ninja Nate.

You read that right: that’s a parkour T. Rex ninja, a phrase that should immediately be given a three movie deal and its own comic book.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Jurassic World without having the heroine running away from a man-eating dino while she is inexplicably wearing high heels (here it is Devin’s wife Megan), so kudos to them for really striving for authenticity. A commitment they took so seriously they filmed on actual sets used in both Jurassic Park and Jurassic World at Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii. (So no, you weren’t crazy in thinking they looked exactly like the ones from the movie.)

You can see even more of their time getting to play on the sets in their behind-the-scenes video they also put together.

Now if you’re a huge nerd like I am, despite how much fun this is and how great it looks, you’ve probably been thinking about the same thing this entire time: shouldn’t you stay still around a T. Rex? Isn’t running, let alone doing parkour with all of its extra movements, the worse thing you can do when you encounter one?

If I have learned any completely incorrect science from the Jurassic Park films (and I’d like to think I’ve learned an incredible amount of factually inaccurate hogwash from them), the number one thing I know to be true without question is that the T. Rex can’t see you if you stay still. That’s just good dinosaur science.

So if one of them happens to know how to parkour, engaging him in a high speed foot chase is just asking for trouble. That dinosaur can do a full front flip with a twist! And he’s working up an appetite! Stop moving!

It might have taken over two decades for us to get to Jurassic Parkour, but that doesn’t mean we are going to waste any time trying to figure out how to survive coming in contact with a dinosaur that moves like that.

What type of dinosaur would make for the best or most dangerous parkour athlete? Which one do you think you’d have the best chance of surviving against? Flip into our comments section below and tell us what you think.
