The promotion for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom took an epic turn in a genius PR stunt Wednesday. It looked like a T-Rex was floating on a barge down the Thames River in London. Imagine glancing over into the peaceful river and seeing this on your commute to work!
MPSonthewater, MPS Marine Policing Unit on the Thames caught this shot of our favorite tiny armed dino!

In a tweet from Brian Gyles, including two images taken Tuesday at 7:24 AM, we can see what the barge may have looked like from the perspective of Londoners and tourists!

In the thrilling trailer for the upcoming sequel, we see T-Rex locked in a similar cage, and Chris Pratt gets a startle when an eye shoots open, and he’s standing face to face with the beast.
Check out this video with more coverage from the giant dinosaur’s journey through London!
