Watch: Minion Attacks Dublin
A giant yellow balloon blocks traffic in Ireland.
A large inflatable Minion escaped a fairground in Dublin and blocked traffic Monday afternoon. The Irish police quickly responded and were able to deflate the rolling juggernaut after about 15 minutes, but the balloon’s 15 minutes of fame continued as the story spread around the world. The 40-foot high inflatable is a character from Minions, the fourth-highest grossing movie of 2015.
