Never get between a Minion and his bananas.
Photos of foam rubber Minions traipsing along a road in Beijing, China have been gaining popularity on Chinese social media site, Weibo. Apparently, the yellow lackeys were carrying loads of bananas.
At one point, urban management officers, pulled over the big, yellow creatures and their three-wheeler and attempted to confiscate their fruity wares.
According to the Shanghaist, some users on Weibo worried that the people inside the foam rubber suits were street vendors, suffering in the hot costumes in order to make a living.
However, the entire scene was merely a publicity stunt set up by Baidu Nuomi, a Groupon-like company in China, to promote the Chinese premiere of the Minions movie on Sept. 13.
Minions were also seen buying large amounts of bananas before heading out to give them away to fans who attended the premiere.
This is why the world can never trust a Minion, or a free banana.
