Jurassic Park's Dr. Malcolm once told gamers to 'get the stink blown off,' and it's amazing

Electronic Arts released a Jurassic Park game on the original PlayStation back in 1997, allowing you to play as both human characters and the dinosaurs themselves. It wasn't very good.

On the other hand, if you collected every DNA strand from the game, Jeff Goldblum, in character as Dr. Ian Malcolm, would show up and tell you to get a life, and maybe go on a date.

Yes, it's as amazing as it sounds.

"Turn the thing off, for heaven's sakes," he said. "Go outside, you know, and breathe the air, take a walk, call a member of the opposite sex. You know what I'm talking about." There is a mention, of course, of getting "the stink blown off you."

Indeed, Dr. Malcolm. Indeed.

A quick note: The image for this story was taken from another article that dealt with a lightbulb commercial also starring Jeff Goldblum. I feel like we're hitting all the high points of his career.
