Things We Saw Today: Jurassic Park Parkour Is Ridiculous T-Rex Action
Devin Graham, a videographer who specializes in extreme sports, recently posted a YouTube video titled “Jurassic Park Meets Parkour In Real Life.” In the video, two parkour practitioners–Ninja Nate, in an inflatable dino costume; and Calen Chan, playing the Chris Pratt character–act out a dino chase at Kualoa Ranch in Hawaii, where both Jurassic Park and Jurassic World were shot.

I really got the giggles from this one, but I do wish they’d given the female protagonist (Megan Graham) some more to do. Just because Jurassic World was pretty sexist, that doesn’t mean your parody has to be! They’re going to shoot a sequel based on user comments, so hopefully they’ll give her a bigger role there.
