Minions Celebrate the Superbowl in Adorable New 'Super Fans' TV Spot
The Minions are adorable little super fans in this new Super Bowl TV spot:
Leave it to this wonderful, cheeky franchise to get to the heart of both the infectious fun and inherent ridiculousness of the Super Bowl: "You and your buddies will jump up and down for hours while screaming indecipherable nonsense. You will spill 64 ounces of a really sticky, fruity drink all over the guy in front of you [and then proceed to lick it off his head, just to be polite]. And you will lightly remove your cute little blue denim overalls. And why, why do you do this? Because you're a Minion!"

Here is the full synopsis for Minions, a spin-off of the Despicable Me series: "Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve history's most despicable masters. After accidentally destroying all their masters, including a T. Rex, Genghis Khan, Napoleon, and Dracula they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. Sometime in the 1960s, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so Kevin comes up with a plan to find a new one. Joined by the rebellious teenager Stuart and kid Bob, they arrive at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, a stylish and ambitious villain determined to dominate the world and become the first female super-villain. Traveling through New York City, they end up in London, where they must confront a threat to the existence of all Minions."
Minions, which stars Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, and Michael Keaton, comes out in theaters on July 10.
