US social media stars ‘Trex Tuesdays’ have been touring Britain and entertaining their 570,000 Facebook fans with their dino-mite exploits.
VisitBritain brought Trex Tuesdays to the UK to explore London, Scotland and Wales and share their experiences with their legions of online fans.
Trex Tuesdays are two Americans who dress up as dinosaurs and film their attempts at human tasks.
While in the UK, the dinosaurs were spotted playing rugby at a Welsh club, hunting Nessie at Loch Ness, recreating the Beatles’ Abbey Road crossing in London and taking a selfie in front of Big Ben.
Robin Johnson, VisitBritain marketing director, said: “Make no bones about it, it’s a fantastic time for Trex Tuesdays to visit.
“Britain is not only offering great value but also a feast of amazing experiences that T-Rex can only get here – from walking in the steps of their ancestors on the Jurassic Coast and chewing the fat with Nessie in Scotland, to dropping in on recently discovered cousins in the Vale of Glamorgan in Wales.
“We’re thrilled they are sharing their #OMGB amazing moments on social media with their thousands of fans and inspiring more people to book a trip to the UK.”
Trex Tuesdays said: “Britain has such great history and since we are 65 million years old, we really appreciate that.”
Trex Tuesdays’ videos are released every Tuesday on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram and have gained millions of views online.
This week’s video focuses on their time in London (pictured at Abbey Road), while the following two videos, which will be released on the next two Tuesdays, will show the dinosaurs exploring Scotland and Wales.
