To celebrate Colin Firth’s breakthrough role in BBC’s 1995 Pride and Prejudice miniseries, a 12-foot tall fiberglass Colin Firth sculpture was constructed and made to rise out of the Serpentine lake in London’s Hyde Park. Ahhhh! Pacific Rim this is not.
The scene is meant to mimic the one in the series where Firth, who plays Darcy, goes for a swim. It’s like the UK’s version of Phoebe Cates in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Europeans are weird.
Reports say this living nightmare will travel to several locations around the UK to terrorize people before finally settling in Lyme Park, Cheshire where the scene was filmed. There it’ll remain forever serving as a reminder that terrible ideas definitely do exist.
