Ah Despicable Me, everyone’s favourite evil-villain-based computer-animated movie, including ours.
Unfortunately though, the film has been hi-jacked. Hi-jacked by the sort of people that feel the need to post what they’re having for breakfast on social media. Or to let everyone know that they really love their cat. Or – and we really can’t stress enough how awful these people are with this last example – sharing pictures of Despicable Me Minions with sycophantic phrases that have nothing to do with what the Minions in the picture are doing. At all.
‘Share if you love your best friend!’ Picture of a Minion. ‘I’m not fat, I just have airbags because I’m precious.’ Picture of a Minion. ‘Men have PMS too. Piss and Moan Syndrome!’ Picture of a Minion. It’s a cancer on the internet, and it needs to be stopped. And breathe.
Anyway, to offer some counterbalance to all the Minion related gibberish being produced by those with an IQ deficiency, here’s a Despicable Me post that doesn’t feature a picture a Minion. What it does feature is Gru’s rather magnificent rocket car, reproduced brilliantly in Lego form by Flickr’s -derjoe- and photographed by Peter Schmid.
There’s more to see at Peter’s photostream via the link above, plus you can build your own version as Peter has done courtesy of -derjoe-‘s book, which is available via Amazon.de here.
