What do Dan McMahon and 75% of the middle aged women on Facebook have in common? They love the Minions. They think about these little yellow freaks constantly. Today, that love is being put on record as Dan and Ethan go off the rails to talk all about Despicable Me and Minions.
We dive head first into the history of the Minions with a rowdy reading of the timeline of their journey to Gru. Dan reads Minion memes he finds on Google while trying not to die from some of the things he reads. If you’re looking for the most joyous celebration of the denim loving, banana worshiping, goggle wearing little angels then this is the place for you.
Listen as Dan tries to list of what other films the outrageously talented voice casts have starred in. The choices may shock you. Also Alan Arkin is alive which Dan only found out after this was recorded. With jam packed voice acting, the films also sport some of the best soundtracks in any kid’s film. The newest album was produced by Jack Antonoff of Bleachers fame and producing every major pop start in the past 10 years as well.
Have you seen Dan’s review of Minions: The Rise of Gru where he revealed his truest minion self for the rising of Gru? If you haven’t be sure to check it out here. If you catch him at any con soon, he may also be sporting the outfit as well. Coming from a man who saw Despicable Me 2 in theatres more than 3 times, none of this should be a shock.
If you’ve been on the fence because of the weird mom memes, please give the Minions another chance. They’ve got big hearts, bright eyes, and humor that’s worth it’s weight in gold.
