So, G and I were visiting with family this weekend in the city of Pittsburgh. We were just hanging out in a city park with the little ones, when all of a sudden, we all looked up and saw the one eyed Minion (I think it was Dave??) flying overhead. He was a giant blimp! How fun?
The Blimp was originally used to advertise DESPICABLE ME 2. I guess they're still flying it around. Might as well. The little ones loved it. The big kids thought it was pretty cool too. I found this short clip on the making and flying of the Minion blimp. That's some pretty talented artists...
I'm actually a big fan of the Minions. In an age where movies characters are recycled for decades, the Minions seem really fresh and original. They are funny and diabolical. I don't know about you, but I can do without another superhero remake movie. These little evil doers make me laugh. Have you seen them perform the BANANA SONG?
Gets me every time. Have you had any Minion blimp sightings?
Bananaaaa! Potato-naaaa! WHHHAAAAA? Bee-Do! Bee-Do! Ka Ga!
