Look up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a Minion?


Imagine driving to work one morning and you catch a glimpse of something up in the sky. Was it a bird? A plane? Or even a UFO? Nope… the next time you see something strange in the sky take a good look at it. It might just be a Minion.

Despicable Me 2 is coming to theaters this summer (July 3rd). In honor of the movie’s release a special Minion BLIMP has been created. It’s affectionately called the Despicablimp. The Despicablimp has already started it’s journey across the United States.

You can track the Despicablimp’s progress across the country on it’s official website, www.Despicablimp.com. You can track the blimp via GPS and check out what tour stops it makes along the way.

If you happen to see the Despicablimp you can tweet your sighting or post photos via Instagram or Flickr using the hashtag #Despicablimp. If your photo is featured on the site you will be eligible to win the weekly prize giveaway.

You can also enter the Despicablimp Sweepstakes. One lucky Despicable Me fan will win a trip for four to the Hollywood world premiere of the film and get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to ride in the blimp! Riding in a blimp is actually on my “Bucket List”. I’ve been in a helicopter and on a hot air balloon (both were on my Bucket List). Now I need to ride in a blimp.

For real time updates you can follow the blimp on Twitter, @despicablimp. You can also check out the Despicablimp in action by watching the Time Lapse video and Featurette.

There is also a brand new trailer for Despicable Me 2. Check it out!

Are you excited about the new film? My family loved the original. I was worried that a sequel might not be as good, however based upon what I’ve seen so far I think Despicable Me 2 is going to be just as good as the original movie.
