And on Sunday, one gigantic Minion managed to cause some real-life havoc in Dublin, Ireland, when it literally stopped traffic on a busy road.
According to The Independent, a 40-foot-tall inflatable Minion decoration blew free of its restraints and into Old Swords Road in the Irish capital. One motorist told the paper that she was stuck in a 15-minute-long traffic jam while emergency officials removed and deflated the yellow creature.

"I'm not sure how it got loose, but I just saw it coming loose and flying across the road as we were driving," said motorist Erin Van Londen in an interview with The Journal. "I actually rang the [police]. It was quite an odd thing to have to report."

Police deflated the creature and carted him out of the roadway using a wheelbarrow.
The Journal noted that no one was injured as a result of the incident, though the Minion did damage a vehicle's side-view mirror. Area officials are investigating whether proper safety precautions were followed in an effort to thwart future dangerous situations, Minion-related and otherwise.
