‘Minions’ Super Bowl ad as ‘Despicable Me’ characters going nude

In a new promo video for the Despicable Me spin-off 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 ahead of Sunday’s game between the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots.

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

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.

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.

The Minions arrive in theaters on July 10, 2015.
