Gru’s minions from Despicable Me 1 & 2 have reached critical mass in way of pop culture celebrity. These slap-stick, yellow skinned nugget men, with their own funny language, are everywhere. They’re taking over the world, and they’re doing it one cultural character at a time. Like Invasion of the Body Snatchers they’ve taken over Star Wars, Batman, Mario, the X-Men and many more. Replacing your heroes and villains with wee little yellow bastards. I don’t know what their end game is (something nefarious, I assume) but their so goddamn cute doing it. Minions – funny and adorable, they make your day good. Then they kill you.
Take a gander at the image gallery below to see what areas of pop culture the minions have infiltrated.
