The stories of Jurassic Park and Fyre Festival aren’t that different, minus the dinosaurs. Something that a wealthy entrepreneur pegged as a luxury event for high-paying customers on a remote tropical island turns into a disaster. With that in mind, the folks at Nerdist brought these two properties together for Jurassic Fraud, a mash-up that turns the premise of Steven Spielberg’s classic film into the next Fyre-esque documentary.
Richard Attenborough’s John Hammond becomes the Billy McFarland of this situation. The real McFarland is currently serving a six-year jail sentence for defrauding investors after what he sold as a luxury music festival turned out to be nothing by FEMA tents, blaring stereos, sad cheese sandwiches, and all-around chaos. Only in Hammond’s case, there’s the voice of Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm saying, “Before you even knew what you had, you patented it and packaged it and slapped it on a lunch box and now you’re selling it.”
Yes, Andy “Blowjob” King, arguably the most ridiculous part of Netflix’s Fyre documentary, makes an appearance in the mash-up — multiple appearances actually — to say how Hammond asked him to “suck d— to fix this problem.”
