Minion

Hey everyone! I know it's Saturday but here's a post!

If you've been following me on my Facebook page, you would notice that this comic has already been up for awhile but then I think it would get jealous if it never got on to be as a blog post. I think comic strips have feelings too and this only solidifies the fact that I am a complete weirdo.

So a couple of weeks back till the recent days, in Malaysia there was the most retarded phenomenon ever where people (mostly grown ass adults) lined up for hours at a popular fast food franchise to get their hands on cheap little yellow plastic toys that comes with every meal set that is supposedly to be for happy kids.

Yes, I was talking about the Minion craze.

Here is how I perceive those who went all out just to get their hands on them.

I'm just being really optimistic about the three months period.
According to sources via social media, some people who managed to get them weren't interested in them anymore after 72 hours. Some much less.

And here is how I perceive those poor people who just wanted to eat some fast food. Like the bros.

Let's begin the bros story with this:

Once upon a time, two bros went out one night to get ice cream...
Shortest fairy tale ever.
The lines at every franchise was mad long and I am not even sure if the toy is worth lining up for. Glad the minion craze is over now and we can all get back to our normal lives.

At least until the next fast food toy craze.

Have a great weekend!

  7. 3 months is waayyy optimistic. I give them 2 weeks before those minions start collecting dust on their shelves. I like minions, but this is just overrated. I hope there won't be another craze like this again -.-

  9. Couldn't really blame the "adults" for the minion craze. Seriously, how many more kids nowadays are obsessed with such mono-function cheap plastic toys? They go for mobile gaming device like Ipad, Iphone, Galaxy Tabs, etc. or even Playstation. Only the young adult groups who grew up in the figurine era still misses collecting figurines and limited edition toys like this minion toys. They may look like an adult on the outside, but remain a child inside. That's what I perceive.

  10. Well won't deny that they're cute.....but they're not THAT cute lar weiiiii. Is it worth that much time of your life? -.- They think it's cool to want them so they just follow the crowd.

    p.s. Strange that the craze only started after the movie Part 2. Weren't they in Part 1 also? Why suddenly je? Weird :/
