Next time you’re stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on Interstate 880 near Exit 29 in the East Bay, do yourself a favor: keep your eyes peeled for the Minion that lives. on the roof.
Just 3 feet tall but weighing close to 100 pounds, the #880minion peeks over the wall at the southbound freeway with his mouth frozen in a permanent grimace. His presence has been a delicious Easter egg for Bay Area newcomers and regular commuters alike since 2015. But he also raises a lot of questions: Why is he standing next to a crashed rocket? Why is he holding a banana? And – above all – who the hell put it up there?
