Jeff Goldblum Laugh Annotated Bibliography
Jeff Goldblum is nearly as enjoyable to watch in Jurassic Park as the dinosaurs.
When the film came out in 1993, audiences were drawn to his eccentric, mathematician "Chaos Theory" character, Dr. Ian Malcolm.
Goldblum has his own devoted fan following for the unique characters he has played through his career. But Malcolm stands out, so much so that fans have made Malcolm art — and someone even made a remix of his laugh from when the character is introduced in Jurassic Park.
Since it was posted in 2014, the fan-made video has accumulated nearly 3 million views. It is as bizarre as it is amazing.
Goldblum has previously said he was aware of the remix and got a kick out of it.
"I know, I've heard them. It tickles me. [The laugh] just happened spontaneously in the moment," he said during a reddit AMA.
Goldblum is once again reprising the character for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, due out next summer. The first trailer for the Chris Pratt-starrer dropped Thursday night.

Earlier this year, the wondrous Internet bestowed upon us one of its greatest gifts since Star Wars kid: a remix of Jeff Goldblum’s legendary Jurassic Park laugh. Now, amazingly enough, it seems someone has perhaps one-upped that EDM reworking by turning Goldblum’s original guffaw into actual sheet music.
As The A.V. Club points out, Evan Kent’s brilliantly detailed transcription features all the appropriate notes and time signatures, as well specific instructions on when to “play very loudly” (that’s ff, or Fortissimo) or “moderately soft” (that’s mp, or mezzo-piano). Yes, now basically anyone can perform Ian Macolm’s masterful/maniacal chortle on any instrument.
Break out your keyboard/ukulele/iPad app and start the weekend early with a shitload of “heh heh heh hrrr.” Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go start a Kickstarter campaign in order to make a whole album’s worth of songs.
Here’s the original , because who doesn’t want to listen to Goldblum’s laugh on a Friday afternoon?
