There’s a 12 Foot Tall Statue of Colin Firth’s Wet Shirted Mr. Darcy Emerging From a Lake In Hyde Park. What A Time To Be Alive.

And All Was Right With the World

This statue of Pride and Prejudice‘s Mr. Darcy, Colin Firth lake scene version, was placed in London’s Serpentine Lake to promote Drama, a new TV channel devoted to British shows. Via The Huffington Post:

It is scheduled to go on display at several locations before being installed in a lake in Lyme Park, northwest England, where the scene was filmed. It will remain there until February.

I’d come up with something clever to say if I could stop laughing for long enough. I don’t mean in a mocking way, though. I am being completely sincere when I say this statue brings joy to my heart.
