The Peacock will air the the 1993 classic with commentary from Chris Pratt and Steven Spielberg on Friday, June 5 at 7 p.m.

7. Fireball Whiskey Amber Jello Shots
This is a triple reference in one: It can symbolize either the amber that preserves the dinosaur DNA, the classic shaking jello scene, or just a throwback to leading man Chris Pratt's love of Fireball.
