Gigantic Wet Mr. Darcy Statue Disturbing Everyone

A sopping wet Colin Firth might be attractive to some, but an ENORMOUS, fiberglass sopping wet Colin Firth is attractive to nobody. In fact, some people are calling the giant statue of Firth as Mr. Darcy from ‘Pride and Prejudice’ “unsettling” and “kind of creepy.”

The statue has been put in Serpentine lake in London’s Hyde Park to promote the launch of UKTV’s new Drama channel, which will air high-profile dramas from the UK, such as the 1995 adaptation of ‘Pride and Prejudice,’ which inspired the statue.

That’s right — the statue is inspired by the TV version of the book, since the scene itself wasn’t actually in Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice.’ Adding one more level of absurdity to the statue — Colin Firth emerging soaking wet from the lake wasn’t even in the scene that wasn’t in the book. It’s a vision that exists solely in the imaginations of the types of people who like to imagine Colin Firth emerging soaking wet from a lake. Here’s the scene in question, just to confirm how strange this statue is, before it takes off on a tour of the UK (yes, really).
