The Unfortunate Trials of The Tyrant Lizard King, or T-Rex Trying… for short, is an art project by Hugh Murphy centered on the peculiar anatomy of Tyrannosaurus rex in various riffs on short forelimb hilarity. Murphy’s torrent of Cretaceous lolz all began by T-Rex trying to paint his house and has grown to include various automotive-themed tyrannosaurid failures involving windshields and drive-through ATM’s. Shown here is T-Rex’s failure to do what our friend Brett Berk does at Vanity Fair all the time: drive stick shift.
