PREXAMPLES DOT THE COM FANS, guess who’s back? Back again? I AM BACK. Tell your friends! (If you, you know, like this post. Otherwise, it’d probably just be a bit annoying).
As of about 20 minutes ago at the time of writing, a giant T-Rex was seen by the Standard’s picture editor Elliot Wagland, floating on down the Thames.

The smart money says it’s a straight-forward ‘make it big and lob it on the Thames’ effort to promote the latest in the Jurassic Park movie series – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, released in exactly two weeks in the UK.
I wondered if the information on the boat would give a clue as to what it was a stunt in aid of (that would have been nice and Easter Egg-y), but it just took me to this page about the… vessel?… itself, and this one, highlighting that it’s arrived on the Thames to support ‘civil engineering projects, crane hire, diving, survey, site investigation, River Thames filming and PR events‘.
Any ideas, PR Land? Any agencies want to claim it?
