A giant, inflatable Minion broke loose from its ropes in Ireland on Sunday and caused a traffic jam. And by giant, I mean the size of a house.

“I’m not sure how it got loose but I just saw it coming loose and flying across the road as we were driving,” Erin Van Londen, from Portmarnock, said.

“It’s been very windy in the area.”

A motorist’s wing mirror was damaged by the escaped inflatable, and the incident caused traffic problems for some time before it was deflated and taken away.

The Minion, before it was deflated was between “30 and 40 feet” high, she said.

“We got quite a shock. Luckily it didn’t seem to cause much damage.”
