London – Londoners were amazed to see a 30 foot long T.rex yesterday, strapped to a flatbed truck, apparently taking the final journey to its autopsy. Bearing a giant toe tag and only partially covered by blood-soaked sheets, the drooling prehistoric beast stunned and delighted thousands of witnesses as it took a scenic route through the busy streets from 7am, with only rush hour standing between the dinosaur and its dissection.
To celebrate the transmission of T.rex Autopsy on the National Geographic Channel on 7th June, yesterday morning we unleashed a ‘T.rex’ that was strapped to a flatbed truck, partially covered by a blood-soaked operating sheet on the way to its autopsy, on unsuspecting Londoners.
Causing intrigue from the streets of Brixton, through Central London and passing the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, London Bridge and Buckingham Palace along the way, the T. rex triggered mass speculation on social media all morning before National Geographic Channel revealed it was a stunt to promote the broadcast of two-hour special T. rex Autopsy this Sunday evening at 8pm.
T. rex Autopsy sees the world’s first life-sized anatomically precise model of a T. rex go under the knife in an incredible visualization of the anatomy and biology of the most infamous predator to have ever lived. The model’s dimensions are based on bone scans of ‘Sue’, the largest and most complete T. rex fossil ever found. It measures 43 feet / 13 meters from nose to tail and 13 feet / 4 meters from to toe to hip. The life-like organs were created using the latest scientific knowledge and research and in collaboration with a team of paleontologists and comparative anatomists. As the teams get stuck in and investigate how the specimen may have died, they explore its biology and anatomy, and discuss how the world’s most infamous mega-predator may have lived.
