Gru’s cute little yellow minions are arguably the best parts of the Despicable Me franchise, and what better to celebrate the debut of Despicable Me 2 on Digital HD (November 26) and Blu-Ray, than by having the Minions take over the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?
Well, it’s not exactly take over so much as they’re just going to be part of the celebrations doing what they do best: making people happy! Before the big day, they’ll also loiter around the city of Manhattan, sightseeing, shopping, and sampling goodies. If you find one of them, you may even get a photo op.
