An artist recently sparked quite an interest online with their imagination of what Godzilla's legs would look like if he were standing in the ocean.
This interesting drawing coincides with the growing popularity of the movie "Godzilla Minus One," which first premiered in Japan on November 3, 2023, marking the 69th anniversary of the iconic monster movie franchise.
The film has made a splash in theaters, crossing the $100 million mark at the global box office and even making it onto the Oscar's shortlist for Best Visual Effects.
The drawing, shared by the artist known as 'Bro, don't like that la, bro,' imagines Godzilla's legs in a scene from the movie.
This has led to a lively Reddit discussion about the realism of a fire-breathing monster with exceptionally long legs.
One user humorously commented, "Whoa dude he could be a Victoria's Secret model."
Another user offered a quirky alternative view, asking, "How do you know he is not shooting a beam out of his a** and using the thrust to stay afloat."
Another pointed out a different inconsistency: "
People also don't question another inconsistency on how Godzilla doesn't melt people into puddles of radioactive goo just by being in close proximity."
In response to this, one user shared their recent movie experience, noting, "I literally just finished this movie an hour ago and when he gets supercharged he absolutely melts metal and brick as he walks around. At least one person dies from this."
Adding a more lighthearted take, someone else wrote, "Naa he's just kicking his stumpy lil lizard legs hard as f**k," which prompted another to reply, "This is what creates the waves in our oceans."
Although the image has gained more attention with the release of the new film, it was actually created a couple of years ago.
The artist posted the drawing alongside a caption reflecting on a point raised by their friend Dan Khoo: "This problem was pointed out by my friend Dan Khoo so I tried to figure out the problem with this one scene from the movie."
They humorously added, "Maybe the real problem is that I think too much."
Some Reddit users chose to highlight broader implausibilities in the Godzilla concept.
One remarked, "I am guessing the real problem with this scene is that there is a gigantic lizard monster breathing blue flame out of its mouth."
Others shared their own theories, with a user suggesting, "Godzilla can swim fast & dive sure can float also. He has swimming skills... The big tummy can also support floating as a buoy."
This blend of humor, curiosity, and creativity among internet users shows just how much Godzilla continues to capture the imagination.
