Here is a shot of the Despicable Me Minions before all the fame and fortune. As you can see, they came from very humble beginnings like most of us.
Before the success, life was pretty hard on the minions. They could not afford many of life’s essentials and were forced to do unspeakable things to make ends meet. Many of the minions were forced into minion prostitution and minion porn. Some were even sold to Max Factor and Maybelline to test makeup. It is widely believed today, that is how they got their bright yellow skin color.
Things looked bleak for the minion race and minion extinction was all but certain, if things did not change soon. Fortunately the movie hit and thanks to the makeup testing that caused their incoherent rambling and bright yellow glow, kids fell in love with them. So it goes to prove that animal or minion testing does seem to work out for the testies… Now we just need a cartoon about rabbits wearing lipstick and eyeliner and everyone should be happy.
Of course, no matter how bad it got for the minions, none of them looked as bad as Spongebob Squarepants after he lost his fame.
Breaks your heart, doesn’t it.
