Those pesky Minions are causing trouble again, this time in Dublin.

A giant inflatable version of one of the chattering yellow characters got loose from a fairground Monday and fell onto a nearby road.

Ireland’s Journal reports that one motorist’s side mirror was damaged by the runaway Minion, which caused some traffic trouble before police came to the scene and the character was deflated and removed from the road. 


“We got quite a shock. Luckily it didn’t seem to cause much damage,” one witness said, adding that the Minion was between “30 and 40 feet” high.

One local city councillor, though, warned the incident could have been much more serious, tweeting, “Escaped Minion at Omni in Santry may seem hilarious but its a dispicable breach of health & safety.”
