Hell, who doesn’t love those adorable little guys who speak the cutest gibberish. But seriously folks, this whole ‘minion mania’ in the wake of the highly anticipated Despicable Me 2 is getting a tad out of hand. Last week, a photo of an ‘angry mob’ breaking down shutters at a certain McDonalds outlet in Penang went viral on Facebook, and so have screenshots of exorbitant prices for single toys on e-bay, along with (now) countless memes highlighting the sheer madness and ‘herd mentality’ fans have been embracing.
Oh, and let’s not forget those folks who bought a whole lot of happy meals just for the toy, and threw away the food. Now that, was truly despicable. If you plan to do that, I strongly recommend you give the meal to some homeless guy, or if you’re buying in bulk, drop the meals off at an orphanage. Please.
But I’m no saint. I totally get the fascination over these toys, and am compelled to amass a collection myself after watching the movie. They’re just so damn irresistibly cute. It’s just that I get really claustrophobic and edgy in long noisy queues… and could very well end up instigating a shutter battering in that flustered state.
On the bright side, the amount of time you spend in a queue could be spent on creating your very own custom-made minions, and it’s not a matter of brain surgery.
