Cheeky Minion took tour of museum after dark

CCTV has captured a helium-filled Minion balloon's ghostly tour of a museum and art gallery. The inflatable Despicable Me character, thought to be either Dave or Bob, but probably Dave, got stuck to the ceiling of the Birmingham attraction some weeks ago.

Staff decided to wait until the balloon "came down of its own accord", which it chose to do after visitors had gone home and as security were locking up for the night.

The resulting footage shows the goggle-eyed Minion gently floating down from the ceiling and checking out some paintings. It then drifts into the gift shop and browses the aisles, before taking a moment to give the cameras a brief close-up of his face.

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery said: "As some regular visitors to BMAG might know we have for some time had a Minion balloon stuck on the ceiling of the Round Room and have been waiting for it to come down of its own accord. It has finally done so - just as the security team were locking up for the night."
