Giant Minion laughs in the face of Irish traffic chaos


The bright yellow Minions have struck again, this time with an enormous inflatable cartoon character blocking a main road during peak hour, resulting in traffic chaos.

The giant Despicable Me star somehow broke free from its nearby home at a carnival coming to rest on a Dublin road.

State police or "Gardai" turned up to the scene with helpful bystanders also helping to deflate the cartoon henchman.

Erin Van Londen took a few snaps of the surreal scene, telling the Irish Independent "we saw the giant balloon coming towards us".

"We were in the queue of traffic but we pulled out into the industrial centre, just to be at a safe distance from the balloon.

"I had seen it yesterday in the carnival when we were driving down and I'd said to my boyfriend, 'There is an absolutely huge inflatable Minion in there'.
