My Friend Jeff (The Jeff Goldblum Painting Song)
A weekly sketch by Cheeky Moon. Music by Matt Cornah (Cobley).
Several years ago, three friends and I pooled our money to purchase the original oil painting of Ian Malcolm: From Chaos. This loving tribute to Jeff Goldblum was painted by John Larriva for “The JP Show”, brandonbird's people-only Jurassic Park themed exhibition, and has since gone on to modest internet fame.
The original now lives in Australia, where it’s routinely exchanged between owners (often in a public place) in a tradition affectionately known as #TheGoldblumTransfer.
The number of owners has since expanded to five through marriage and will soon reach six through the miracle of childbirth. There is talk among the soon-to-be parents of taking it into the maternity ward.
All in all, purchasing a lavish oil painting of Jeff Goldblum is a life decision we can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone.
You can follow the further adventures of The Goldblum via this tumblr, via fellow owner rivaldojo, or simply by searching for #TheGoldblumTransfer on your social network of choice. It also makes regular cameos on our weekly comedy channel, Cheeky Moon Productions.
If you, too, would like a little Goldblum in your life, please support the artist and purchase a high-res print.
