This “Minions” advertising campaign is getting out of hand, guys.
Drivers in north Dublin got a bit of a surprise today when they saw a huge 40-foot-tall inflatable Minion rolling down the road toward them.
The Irish Independent reports that the balloon somehow flew loose and landed in the middle of afternoon traffic - all part of the Minions’ world domination plot, most likely. Local police were called in and worked with passers-by to deflate it.
Turns out the Minion was part of a carnival in the area, but it fell over and rolled onto the road. Nobody was injured, so it was just a funny news story to spice up their day - or yet another elaborate marketing ploy from Universal.
