In my mind, the Minions from the Despicable Me franchise can actually do no wrong. They represent comedy in its purest form, what with their vaguely Italian and/or Russian accents, their quirky appearance, their gibberish that is close to English but also not English at all, and the amount of immediate joy they bring to the hearts of their fans... both on and off screen.
A group of Minions recently collaborated to make a Christmas promo for [The Minions](movie:490525) movie (set to be released Summer 2015), for our collective enjoyment.
Check it out!
As you just saw, they put together what I guess you could call a rendition of "Jingle Bells" while forming a Minion Christmas tree. I have to say, I've watched this video at least 10 times in the past half hour and I don't plan on stopping.
The Minions have been successful on the big screen, in merchandising, and they even have a ride at Universal Studios Hollywood theme park now. In fact, here at the Moviepilot offices, we recently hired one to work here. Hey, they're loyal employees...
This movie is going to be adorably awesome.
