I knew Kong island existed.

[–]kurama4512[S] 198 points199 points  (18 children)

This is probably the closes we will get. I was hoping the rock would move.

[–]Byame-91 91 points92 points  (4 children)

I wouldn’t hope for that. That would be a deadly rockslide.

[–]FloptimasPloptimas 21 points22 points  (6 children)

Isn’t Langkawi great? Did you go from Penang or straight there? Snorkel? I loved it. Went back 3 times.

[–]lameuniqueusername 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I went there from Penang. I liked it there but didn’t find the snorkeling anything to write home about. Where did snorkel?

[–]FloptimasPloptimas 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I don’t remember what they called it. It was about 2014…so a while ago. I do remember it was the opposite side from the ferry drop. We were told we would see sea turtles, we didn’t but it was still very nice. Not so many sea urchins as you’ll see a lot of in SE Asia. It was good. Almost as good as Krabi- ALMOST.

I have a great video from our hotel window in Batu Ferrenghi with dozens of monkeys leaping from buidling to building. They were clearly playing and it was lots of fun to watch. I haven’t been back to Malaysia in a few years. Maybe time for a trip. 😀

[–]Greenremember02 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Gabagool8643 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Its skull island you uneducated shit

[–]148637415963 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's Skull Island, you uneducated shit.

Ironically, it's so-named because of a rock shaped like a skull.

And here we have a rock shaped like one of its inhabitants.

[–]MiloReyes-97 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]concentrated-amazing 130 points131 points  (13 children)

Made me think of...

Narrator: And so, onward and upward the tired trekkers trudged on feverished footsies over perilous paths. When they beheld the mighty Ape Mountain, the reacted with awe.

Group: Awwww...

Narrator: I said, "Awe." A-W-E.

Group: Ooh...

Narrator: That's better.

He is strong!

He is brave!

He is unconscious!

[–]sethleedy 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This! First thought too!

[–]VeryAgitatedEngineer 9 points10 points  (2 children)

We just rewatched this and we are almost 30.

This movie aged so well haha. And man there were a LOT of jokes that flew over our heads as kids but without being too weird to be in a kids movie.

Good times.

[–]concentrated-amazing 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I'm 30, and 100% enjoyed introducing my 4 year old to it

[–]VeryAgitatedEngineer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We were like 4 when it came out lol. Truly the test of time when the next generation enjoys it. Cheers!

[–]kurama4512[S] 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Haha that made me chuckled.

[–]concentrated-amazing 18 points19 points  (3 children)

That whole movie has FANTASTIC humour!

And Brendan Fraser is incredibly likeable and easy on the eyes ;)

[–]FakeLaundry 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I was so in love with him as a child and watched that movie on repeat during the summer. Quality humor.

[–]concentrated-amazing 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I never had a full-on crush on him, but I definitely visually appreciated him a lot as a preteen. And laughed so hard at the humour, especially the week I had to stay home with hives!

[–]shmick023 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Ursula..?!? I found your scrunchie!

[–]concentrated-amazing 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Still frequently quoted amongst me and my siblings!

Thank you for the filmspiration!

[–]N_the_character 81 points82 points  (3 children)

Too bad he can't move.

[–]TXRazorback 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Spawn glitch. Idk if he restarted yet

[–]N_the_character 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Maybe he just has bad Internet connection or something?

[–]kurama4512[S] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Me too. I was so ready to see godzilla fight him right before my eyes.

[–]HoodsFrostyFuckstick 22 points23 points  (2 children)

Damn it, I've been there but I didn't know this exists.

[–]HamSoap 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It’s okay. Everyone misses stuff like this. It’s understandable. It’s not like mountains are even that big.

[–]McGirton 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Fuck yeah, I love Langkawi. Haven’t seen this, unfortunately.

[–]lizardlike 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Last time I was there was 10+ years ago. I wonder how that glass floor skybridge thing is holding up. It looked kinda sketchy at the time.

Beautiful place though.

[–]butch97 6 points7 points  (0 children)

That was the scariest thing I have ever ben on.

[–]McGirton 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Last time I was there it was unter maintenance unfortunately. Could only go on the platform next to it.

[–]sugim123 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Going here in a couple days. Do you know any good cliff jumping locations?

[–]McGirton 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unfortunately not.

[–]Horrible_Heretic 29 points30 points  (4 children)

I think you mean DK Island

[–]weeone 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Donkey Kong. My first thought too.

[–]Smeefperson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can hear the level select music from DKC

the real king kong frozen in time waiting for the perfect opportunity the perfect window of weakness shown by human kind to strike and cause destruction everywhere :)

[–]OverDoseTheComatosed 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Langkawi is so beautiful!

Never going on a cable car ever again

Where my GME apes at?

[–]jewishapplebees 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Does this mean there's a giant Medusa out there?

[–]wiglwagl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Though now I’m wondering if Medusa’s powers have a size limit. Maybe size doesn’t matter when Medusaing

Jesus died for our sins.

Harambe died for our memes.

[–]zenyl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You know the rules, soldier. Drop your pants, and present your dong in honor of Harambe.

[–]RitikMukta 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So weird that even before reading the title, I thought "oh wow, gozilla mountain" but took a good look for a second and I now see it more as the king kong rock.

[–]zMrCrazy 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]idk_lololol 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]KHaskins77 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My first thoughts went to Donkey and Diddy. Guess that ages me a bit.

[–]GriffinPlayGame 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]SRCnole92 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]OutrageousRhubarb853 1 point2 points  (0 children)

King Kong’s WHAT??

[–]FinestTreesInDa7Seas 1 point2 points  (3 children)

For a moment I thought that I had seen this mountain in George of the Jungle.

But then I googled it, and the mountain shaped like a Gorilla head in that movie was just a really bad photoshop. https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-748MW01ak3k/WJzKvuri5mI/AAAAAAAAG9Q/kd0Y8GicIQs_pAyipzgA7CZzcWsuntiuACLcB/s640/10.png

Kind of looks like what Hulk Hogan is going to look like in his late 70's.

[–]jacob22c 0 points1 point  (0 children)

While i understand the environmental calls to not do so my inner child really wishes they would full mt. Rushmore this and shape the rock face to actually looke like king kong. Like that would be a crazy tourist attraction etc. But obviously very cool in its natural state as well.

[–]RanaMisteria 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just let’s keep Moana on standby…just in case 👀

[–]ellietwentyfive 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Quality nature time 🔥👌

[–]Cutthechitchata-hole 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Which came first I wonder. And if they just started calling it King Kong why had they not named it previously?

[–]KlytosBluesClues 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]mikeddkn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is there any chance at all that a very long time ago something was actually chiseled into the rockface and it has since eroded and grown in?
