Jimmy Buffett has a cameo in the new Jurassic World movie:

You might not recognize him at first, but according to the film’s production designer, Buffett was double-fisting liquor and mugging for the camera as the sky fell down around him. “It’s just a little tiny bit when the Pteranodons start to attack and you see him running, and he’s holding a couple of margaritas,” Edward Verreaux told Yahoo Movies earlier this week. “He’s trying to gingerly keep the margaritas safe.”

There’s no photographic evidence of Buffett in the movie yet, but we did discover a shot of him deep within the Jurassic World website, where you can see him having a typically joyful time during a marketing photo shoot.

So, how did the 68-year-old rock legend get so involved with the movie?

Buffett has been friends with Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall for over 30 years, and they frequently work together. Buffett acted in and provided music for the 2011 Marshall-produced family film Hoot, and he had a cameo in the Marshall-directed 1995 movie Congo. The two also partnered on a Facebook game back in 2013, appropriately titled Margaritaville.

    I saw it on Friday night and thought that’s who was trying to save two margaritas! Plus a Margaritaville bar was destroyed by the dino mayhem. Along with about 20 more product placements!
