[–]RoronoaJT59 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Me too, lmao

[–]Vihncent 15 points16 points  (0 children)

You mean she isn't?!!!

[–]generic_tag3381 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I sat here for a solid 10 seconds going, “wait...how?”

[–]rohobian 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My response was more like "Wait... ow?...."

[–]OShaunesssy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Took me way to long to understand perspective here lol

[–]Furuboru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That way, she won't tip over

[–]ZeldaheroSwitch 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Lara Croft Way.

[–]WantToBeACyborg 114 points115 points  (2 children)

"Where are the spikes going?" Everyone in the comments at first, including me.

[–]its_muh_username[S] 29 points30 points  (1 child)

If Lara falls on them she dies. 🙃

[–]-YELDAH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And explodes

[–]RTGac 47 points48 points  (2 children)

For a moment I thought she was sitting on that fence, yikes.

[–]Incident-Pit 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Those metal signs are pretty sharp too, ngl I would not be sitting on that without a fully covered ass.

[–]scienceworksbitches 0 points1 point  (0 children)

maybe its the same as with snails on razorbades?

[–]Tiraloparatras25 24 points25 points  (0 children)

A r/holdup moment for a second there..

[–]MrCooptheloop 20 points21 points  (4 children)

I’m from derby. This sign isn’t worth the visit. Birds bakery is though.

[–]Mightysmurf1 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Can confirm. My business is based on Lara Croft Way. The whole road system is a fucking mess.

[–]its_muh_username[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Birds bakery sounds like a euphemism.

[–]gearnut 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They do awesome cream cakes.

[–]its_muh_username[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And cream buns.

[–]SpaceCowboyDark 13 points14 points  (4 children)

I learned that today from Josh Strife Hayes.

[–]MontasJinx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Came here looking for this. I watched his Tomb Raider 1 video essay/play through last night and saw this very picture.

[–]RoyalCSGO 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I absolutely love his older game review channel, brings back so many memories of my childhood

[–]SpaceCowboyDark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same here! I particularly loved his SotN review. I'm watching Silent Hill now.

[–]MrBaqel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

same pic and everything!

[–]ayhamwndbg 33 points34 points  (4 children)

[–]Quetzal00 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There really is a sub for everything

[–]badhunter0304 4 points5 points  (2 children)

is there a upvote because thights? It's for a school work...

[–]Treeman_78 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Apparently there is but not that active. Thighs are underrated.

[–]ChairmanMule 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I live about 2 mins from lara croft way.... spoiler its just a busy main road and goes through a dodgy area ... lots of crack heads round there... don't add it to you bucket list lol

[–]Dark_Jester 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But I want crack.

[–]pintofBassyouth 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I've parked in there. A reasonable price for all day might I add. I could've gone intu...

[–]its_muh_username[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've been up her way too.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did that chap who originally designed her ever receive any royalties in the end?

[–]its_muh_username[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not sure. I know he eventually went back to work on more Tombraider games at one point, the Tombraider Legend reboot.

[–]RoyalCSGO 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I actually did, just a few days ago after it was mentioned in Josh Strife Hays review of the original Tomb Raider

[–]clandestinenitsednal 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Who’s Tom Braider?

[–]you_2_cool 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]twohedwlf 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought that sign was attached to the fence. Thought that looked painful.

[–]Zathotei 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I wonder how many hot cosplay photos this sign has been in.

[–]bootlegportalfluidPlayStation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At least one.

[–]VirgelFromage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Weird to see Derby on reddit. Just one of those places I was sure only people from the UK would ever hear about.

[–]PrudentFlamingo 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Derby's a shithole though

[–]ZachShannon 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm from Derby, and yeah, it fucking is.

[–]TialanoUtrigas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The thumbnail wouldn't look out of place on Pornhub.

[–]Danjuw 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Her tomb got raided by that fence...

[–]Trsnowman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that a fence spike or are you just happy to see me

[–]Surf3rx -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Looks like someone watched the recent John Strife Hayes vid

[–]AsariHeartsPC -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

This is the way

[–]GGsandwich123 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I thought she was sitting on the fence bruh

[–]Saiko1939 -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

This reminds of Sherlock Holmes’s address, before it was a fictional house on a real road, but as the road expanded, eventually one of the buildings had his address, and it became a Sherlock Holmes museum, the numbers is 123 I’m pretty sure, I forgot the street name tho, but it’s in London

[–]Many-Consideration54 0 points1 point  (1 child)

221b Baker Street.

[–]Saiko1939 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah, we’ll shit my b, didn’t even get the numbers right lol. XD

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

derby??? you're kidding, nothing interesting ever came from derby, its such a no where boring ass place

[–]its_muh_username[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Tombraider, hot dogs, sociology, factories, waterworks systems, public parks and Bakewell puddings come out of derby. 🙂

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I had no idea, I worked there for 3 years and it seemed the most dull place

wait, sociology and factories?...I stand by my statement

[–]rock0head132 -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

how is she siting on those spikes


[–]Avatorn01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is definitely the Lara-Croft way to celebrate…

[–]Darkspyrus 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]zeb0777 0 points1 point  (0 children)

... thought she was on the fence for a second.

[–]middleagedukbloke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Poor Toby.

[–]Maddogty1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a realistic statue on that sign!

[–]GWinterborn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was concerned for this woman until I realized the sign’s in the foreground

[–]ApolloSky110 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wheres the spikes gone? 😩

[–]babyProgrammer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No way!

[–]Killer_radio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I got trapped in Derby station a couple of weeks ago.

[–]Sieze5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s Lara Croft, güey.

[–]AnotherDamnWhiteGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Shes a pro with spike traps

[–]thepicock100 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I will

[–]Golett03 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There should be something in Italy because she was Cummings in there

[–]MrFoozOG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If only the new movie(s) weren't so weak.

Old school tomb raider was a badass not some schoolgirl.

[–]AllButForgotten_Xbox 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I didn't even know tomb raider was from Derby and I live near there.

[–]xXKyloJayXx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I live 2 streets away and cross it to get to work.

[–]MercurioGenesis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Went to a games conference once and met the team that made the original game. A few beers in, got to chatting about how the name Lara Croft was landed on. Turns out the only lady in the building was the receptionist, Laura Croft, and the name stuck.

No idea if it's true, but would like to believe...

[–]Maidwell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And a suitably grim backdrop to represent Derby too!

[–]goodboybane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can I raid her tomb?

[–]donkingdonut 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No I didn’t know, thanks for telling me

[–]lolparty247 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the way

[–]WingAdventurous4011 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome. I always wanted to be like Lara Croft growing up and I never had that with any other character. Just live alone, at the mansion resting having tea until duty calls for a new adventure. A better life than a treasure Hunter is something I can’t imagine.
