Man thinks he sees Jurassic Park character John Hammond, reacts accordingly

"Welcome... to Jurassic Park"

We'd hope that if you walked past a man bearing an uncanny resemblance to Jurassic Park character John Hammond that you would react in exactly the same way this man did.

A guy named Mark, of Australian comedy duo The Royal Stampede, caught this video in Adelaide which sees him walk past a man kitted out in a white suit and hat extremely similar to the clothes worn by Richard Attenborough's character in Steven Spielberg's 1995 blockbuster.

Combine this with the fact the man was wearing glasses and - let's be honest - is a ringer for the late Attenborough, what happened next was completely warranted. See for yourself below:

Attenborough reprised his role of Hammond for Spielberg's sequel The Lost World in 1997.

A hugely successful continuation of the franchise, Jurassic World, arrived last year directed by Colin Trevorrow who will next direct Star Wars: Episode IX.

A Jurassic World sequel will be released in 2018.

If anything, we're just happy this video's given us the excuse to dig out this classic.
