Minion balloon visits a museum - level 3
A silent moonlight visitor has been caught on camera touring a Birmingham Museum late at night. This helium-filled minion balloon seemed to enjoy its private, after hour visit as it bobbed through the collection of masterpieces.
It’s thought that the notorious yellow, goggle-wearing carton creature from the animation film “Despicable Me” is a character, Dave.
Museum staff was waiting for the balloon to lose its helium and fall to the ground, which eventually occurred when the security team was locking up for the night. The video featuring the ghostly creature is rapidly becoming an internet sensation, after being viewed and shared by thousands of people on social media websites. Speculation was rife as to what the miniature servant may have been up to—perhaps scouting out the location for Gru’s next big heist!
Officials at the museum said the minion has since exited through the gift shop.
Difficult words: bob (to move up and down slowly), sensation (something that is popular), speculation (wonder), rife (happening a lot), miniature (small), scout (to look around), heist (a crime to steal something).
