Outfits Fans Wore to See ‘The Rise of Gru’ in Theaters!

In honor of the minions, a viral trend has become a recent phenomenon on apps like TikTok and Twitter with the hit song, “Rich Minion” by Yeat, playing in the background of each video. Fans today are continuing to see The Rise of Gru in suits, minion-inspired outfits, and some going as far as renting out theaters for their family and friends.

What first began as a joke, is now the latest internet trend. The Rise of Gru premiered in theaters on July 1 and die-hard minion fans are still continuing the trend today as they see the film with family and friends; some in their most expensive attire, while others are dressing up as minions themselves.

If you’ve been online recently, you have probably seen numerous fans across the nation dressing up in suits in honor of the minions, some are calling it “minion life”. The internet trend was recently amped up a bit as it has now grown to be a global trend. Check out this TikTok from fans in Melbourne, Australia.
