A near $209 million opening automatically makes a movie a cultural milestone. Such is currently happening with Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World. So far, the funniest result by far is this set of photos. A few zookeepers have taken to social media to recreate the image above, which features Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) carefully controlling a heard of raptors. So what does it look like when a real zookeeper emulates his pose with a bunch of walruses, ostriches or chickens? Find out about the Jurassic World zookeeper meme below.
UPDATE: After posting this story Wednesday morning, this exploded online. See a ton of additional images below.

Now that Jurassic World has finally been realized on the big screen, and John Hammond’s vision for a fully functional dinosaur theme park has come true (for better or worse), there’s no better time to look at the designs that made the film possible.
As we all know, making a movie is no small feat, and the effort can require hundreds of people working together to make it happen. But before cameras are rolling and sets are built, a whole slew of artists are rounded up to help design the look of the movie, from the sets to the dinosaurs to the wardrobe and everything you see on screen. And a great collection of concept art for Jurassic World has popped up online now that the film is in theaters, and it’s pretty cool to compare it to what we saw in the final product.
