Say what? Drivers caught in Dublin, Ireland, traffic were treated to a delay from an unlikely source: a giant inflatable Minion!

The reports that an inflatable Minion from the movie Despicable Me blocked cars on a busy road yesterday.

The Minion balloon was a prop at a local fair. However, a strong gust of wind carried the inflatable, which stood between 30 and 40 feet tall, to its inconvenient location on Old Swords Road.

While the story may seem humorous, unlike the Minions this is no laughing matter. One driver reported that the balloon knocked the wing-mirror off of his car. Fortunately, that seemed to be the only damage.

One motorist contacted the Irish national police about the incident. They made it out to the scene, deflated the Minion, and removed it from the road.

However, the story isn’t over for Dublin City Councilor Paul McAuliffe. The councilor is currently planning to launch an investigation into the fair’s health and safety measures to find out if they were at fault for the incident.

Perhaps he should check if nefarious supervillain Gru is invloved in any way.
