In this article, we are going to go over Minions movie TikTok trend which has been making waves around the globe for its hilarity and absurdness.
A strange new TikTok fad is sweeping the internet, and it may be the oddest one yet. The ‘Gentleminions’ craze involves huge groups of young men dressed formally, generally in dark suits and ties, to attend screenings of the latest animated feature, Minions: The Rise of Gru.
What is the gentleminions trend?
In many popular videos uploaded on the social media app, the males, who are mainly teens, gather with their pals to descend on their local movies dressed to the nines. They walk stoically in formation and ride escalators in formation as they make their way through retail malls to the nearest Minions screening.
They sat in a row in the theatre after watching the film, tossing Minions signals with their hands and clapping in delight. The concept behind the fad is that spectators find it humorous to watch properly dressed young men pretend to take a children’s film so seriously.

Their watching of the film, however, has been considered ‘ironic delight,’ and the groups are visiting the animated blockbuster for a good laugh as well as to capture meme-worthy videos for TikTok. While the fad is largely sweeping the United States, one famous video made by TikTok user Bill Hirst that has almost 35 million views is said to have been shot at Westfield Chatswood in Sydney, Australia.
TikTok users are loving the trend, with one commentator stating the guys are ‘raising awareness for the best movie ever.’ Bill Hirst, a TikTok celebrity, even received an endorsement from the official Minions account, who commented on his video, ‘Here you dropped this,’ with a crown emoji. However, not everyone is enjoying the meme’s comeback, with some theaters prohibiting the ‘Gentleminions’ owing to boisterous behavior. On Monday, a Twitter user tweeted a sign put at an Odeon Cinemas site informing customers that men in suits were not permitted to join the screenings.
