Having a rough start to your week? It can’t be nearly as bad as what drivers in Dublin, Ireland, experienced Monday afternoon.
The Telegraph reports a 40-foot inflatable Kevin—one of the beloved Minion characters from the Despicable Me film franchise—was knocked over by “very strong winds” on a busy four-lane street in Santry, causing a massive traffic jam.
A witness named Erin Van Londen shared a photograph to Facebook showing a Garda police car at the scene where the Minion collapsed.
The yellow character was eventually relocated to a nearby fun fair, per The Irish Mirror, before being deflated and taken away in a wheelbarrow.
The Minions have become some of the most internationally recognized characters since Despicable Me was released in 2010.
I mean, who doesn’t love Minions?
