Minion balloon visits a museum - level 2

Minion balloon visits a museum - level 2

08-07-2015 15:00

Inside of a museum in England, someone left a helium balloon that looked like a cartoon character. A camera inside filmed the balloon bobbing around the art.

This was a funny situation because the cartoon character was from a movie about a man who steals things, so it seemed like the balloon was there to plan another heist.

Workers at the museum put the video on the Internet, and many people watched and enjoyed this balloon’s museum visit.

Difficult words: helium (a gas that makes things float), bob (to move up and down slowly), heist (a crime to steal things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
