Dinosaur, Presented With Buffet of Children, Can’t Decide Who’s First

Pterodactyl Puppet
You've come a long way, baby.

In what is quite possibly the coolest video you will see this week, a live action dinosaur, worked by actors and puppeteers, stalks through the Museum of Natural History in Los Angeles, entertaining adults and freaking the hell out of kids wherever it goes. We’ve decided that most of us, if encountering this as little kids, would have probably just gone tharn and pissed ourselves. Siege, on the other hand, would have tamed it and called it Fred.

I think my favorite bit, apart from the adult encouraging the creature to eat a child, are the little kids running around. Is it just me, or are they acting like this is just some bigass video game they’ve climbed into? When cloned dinos go berserk in a few years, they will be the first to go, I’m sure.

  • That’s disturbingly realistic. In fact, that’s the kind of thing you’ll see in movies, where the raptor gets loose, and the crowd is watching it approach going, “Wow, that’s disturbingly realistic.” And then it starts ripping them apart. You see, by that time, I’ll have run away, because I see these kinds of things coming. It’s why I’ll survive the zombie apocalypse. Constant vigilance.

  • Yes, an excellent application of the “I don’t have to run fast, just faster than you” principle. I respect that.
