Never knew minions from the movie Despicable Me were that highly known in Japan, and I nearly mistook them as Pikachu. Their popularity is so enormous that the short yellow glasses wearing alien fella probably had probably surprised himself.

The big event is a children’s charity event from Variety called Minions run. Thousands of people were invited to dress like minions to party on the dance floor. The huge party included famous DJs, musicical artists, and comedians. Obviously, at such kind of event where people dress up the same, a marching parade will always be expected.

If you would like to be part of the alien member feel free to register from here. The next event will start on 2/27 and 2/28 in Osaka .

The last part of the event featured the song Happy from Pharrell Williams.
