Minions — the little yellow characters from the “Despicable Me” movie franchise — are known for causing mischief. It was no exception yesterday in Dublin when a 40-foot tall Minion balloon somehow escaped its restraints and blew into traffic in northern Dublin.
Police were able to capture the runaway balloon — after a bit of traffic chaos — and let the air out of it. No one was hurt, but one driver lost a side mirror.
