New Toho Cinemas Commercial Combines Despicable Me Minions with Godzilla
posted on by Eric Stimson
The minions from the American film series Despicable Me might be curious little critters, but in the latest commercial for TOHO CINEMAS, they may have encountered more than they can handle.
Although minions have their own gibberish language, it is clear that at first, they assume the TOHO CINEMAS logo is either a tomato or a sun. The minion hidden in the logo mistakes Godzilla for a "doggie."
TOHO CINEMAS, originally Virgin Cinemas Japan, was acquired by TOHO Company in 2003; Godzilla is perhaps the latter's best-known cinematic character. A giant Godzilla even towers over a TOHO Cinema in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
