“Minions” Advertising is Eating the Internet
This is getting out of control.
Listen, I’m sure that the “Minions” movie will be a much-needed distraction for some frazzled parents’ screaming kids this summer, and who doesn’t love some healthy competition with Disney? Yay capitalism! I’m just saying, Universal’s $600 million advertising campaign for the film is destroying the very fabric of our society and we’re all doomed.
Those weird gibbering yellow creatures from the “Dispicable Me” movies are freaking everywhere, including these giant Minions looming over a movie theater several blocks away from the What’s Trending office. How are children not terrified of these things?
Then there’s the inescapable merchandise, from iPhone cases to Twinkies to stickers on Chiquita bananas, because Minions are sexually attracted to bananas or something? I haven’t seen the movies, I don’t know.
Parents are currently freaking out because this Minions Happy Meal toy from McDonald’s kind of sounds like it’s saying “What the fuck.” (What the fuck INDEED.)
If you have older relatives on Facebook, you’ve probably been swamped by memes like this one because they’re soooooo funny oh my gosh have you seen this one hahaha!
Also, if you do this to your pets, I promise they despise you.
Yes, celebrate this beloved children’s movie by shoving a Minion up your cooter.
I guess this is reality now, sorry guys.
