Having a rough start to your week? It can’t be nearly as bad as what drivers in Dublin, Ireland, experienced Monday afternoon.

Giant Minion terrorises drivers in Ireland as 40ft inflatable blocks busy Dublin road

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?
