Pics have been floating around on a Chinese social media site, Weibo, featuring people dressed up as Minions hauling giant loads of bananas on the busy streets of Beijing. At one point, The Man (aka urban management officers) tried to stop the Minions in the midst of their mysterious banana business, but it looks like they were able to get away.
So, why were Minions running around in China with bananas? Apparently it was just a publicity stunt that had been organized by a Groupon-esque company known as Baidu Nuomi to help promote the Chinese premiere of the Minions movie on Sept 13. The bananas were intended to be given away to attendees.
Check out some more pics after the break…
