There Is a Giant Inflatable Mr. Darcy Floating in London’s Hyde Park

darcy He’s 12 ft high. He’s proud. And he’s wearing a wet shirt.

In an ode to Jane Austen (or, more specifically, the 1995 mini-series, or, more specifically still, the scene where Colin Firth jumps into the lake with his shirt on), London’s Hyde Park has installed a temporary fiberglass sculpture of everyone’s favorite character/actor/unattainable model of masculine perfection. Does that city have its priorities straight or WHAT?

The sculpture will soon go on tour, so cross your fingers for a puddle-jump.
