Minions, Super Bowl

Streaker! We have another Minion streaker!

More than one, actually.  In a new promo video for the Despicable Me spinoff film Minions, a Minion "Super Fan" gets a little carried away while cheering on his favorite team and is a naughty influence on his friends. The clip is set to air during the 2015 Super Bowl and was posted online on Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game.

"The Minions are ready for Sunday. Are you? ‪#‎SB49‬ ‪#‎TeamMinions‬," read a message posted on the movie's Facebook page.

In the video, the cute little animated, yellow, denim overalls-wearing, gibberish-speaking critters are shown inside a stadium acting like many typical sports fans—munching on warm pretzels, sipping from a double-can beer helmet, spilling a 64-ounce slushie on somebody head, licking off the remnants (OK, that part is probably not that typical, we hope) and....stripping?!

Yep, one of the Minions is shown removing his overalls and there's a lot of judgment about it...for like two seconds, because the Minions are all about having fun and, well, being followers.

"Swing those pants, baby!" the announcers yells.

Let's just say the initial streaker appeared to have been quite inspiring. Watch the video below.

Minions have showcased nudity before, but only from behind. Remember that Xeroxing scene in the first 2010 film? And who could forget Stuart skinny-dipping in the 2013 sequel?

The movie Minions sees a group of the creatures embarking on a dangerous journey to find a new despicable master, the "biggest" and "baddest" villain out there, after (oops) destroying previous ones, such as Dracula and a Tyrannosaurus Rex, by accident.

The film is set for release in July and features the voice talents of the likes of Sandra Bullock, who portrays the villain Scarlet Overkill, Jon Hamm, who plays her husband, plus Michael Keaton and Allison Janney. Watch a trailer below.
