A FEW DAYS ago, a group of tourists got chased by a wild giraffe during a visit to a safari park in South Africa.

The animal ran after their jeep for several kilometres as they began to panic.

Eventually one of them started recording the scene on his phone.

He later told 9News:

You can see how he gets closer and closer after every turn. We started to run out of road.



Fortunately, the giraffe stopped eventually.

But then the internet got hold of the video, and realised that it was very similar to a certain iconic scene from Jurassic Park:

It was swiftly dubbed ‘Giraffic Park’ on Reddit… and the remixes began.
