Just when we thought nothing could bring any joy to this dreary Tuesday morning, this news story turns up.

A HUGE inflatable Minion has been causing chaos in Dublin. The 40ft inflatable has fallen over and blocked a road, and everyone’s lost the plot.


The Minion (Kevin more specifically) lost its balance in very strong winds; blocking the four-lane road in Santry, Dublin.

Witness Erin Van Londen posted a photograph on Facebook showing a police car attending the scene, where the Minion had collapsed onto the road, causing a 15-minute traffic jam.

So where did this giant yellow beast come from (apart from the pits of hell, obvs)?


The Irish Mirror reported that the Despicable Me character was erected by the operators of a nearby funfair.

He was eventually deflated and carted away in a wheelbarrow.

RIP Kevin.
