Girl Tells Parents She’s Booked Fancy Restaurant But Tricks Them Into Seeing Minions
| Last updated
A woman's family were left 'unimpressed' after being a promised a nice meal and instead ending up with popcorn, fountain drinks and dozens of yellow minions.
Most people love a trip to the cinema, so, on an ordinary day, this latter scenario probably wouldn't seem too bad – unless you're a particular hater of minions, that is.
Either way though, the cinema is definitely a far cry from the expensive drinks and multiple courses the family had probably been gearing up for when TikToker Phoebe announced she'd booked a 'fancy restaurant'.
In her clip shared online, the prankster revealed she'd encouraged her family members to dress up for the occasion, resulting in two of her male family members wearing suits and ties while her mum wore matching trousers and a blazer.
Phoebe could be seen laughing towards the camera as they travelled to the 'restaurant', which turned out to be a Cineworld. Their fancy food was replaced with sweets, and the nice music they might have expected to hear quietly in the background was replaced by the nonsense chatter being spouted by minions as they settled in to watch Steve Carrell's latest film, Minions: The Rise of Gru.
Acting as a prequel to the 2010 children's film Despicable Me, the action/comedy offers fun for all the family as it takes viewers back to the early '70s, when a 12-year-old Gru hears the legendary Vicious 6 supervillain gang have fired their leader, Wild Knuckles.
Desperate to become a criminal, Gru, voiced by Carrell, infiltrates the gang's lair in a bid to become the new boss, only to be told to come back when he's 'done something evil'.
The film has received a fairly positive rating of 72 percent by critics on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer, though it's proved much more successful with the general public who have given it an Audience Score of 90 percent.
Pheobe's family were thankfully among those who enjoyed the film as the TikToker said that while they initially 'weren't impressed' with her prank, all three of her victims gave it five stars.
The video of the prank took the internet by storm and has already racked up more than 6.7 million views on TikTok, as well as catching the attention of the official Minions TikTok account, who responded: "An unbreakable family bond."
It comes as numerous Minions fans have decided to dress in their best clothes to watch the film as part of a trend dubbed 'Gentleminions', which has quickly spread among TikTok users.
