Is It a Bird? A Plane? No! It’s Despicable Me 2 Blimp! Despicablimp!

Despicable Me 2 Blimp Is On Its Way

Up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s  Despicable Me 2 Blimp! Wooza, am I seeing things? 
Look up!  You just might see a giant yellow Minion floating high above you, because
Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2 Despicablimp has 
begun its journey across the U.S.!
Cruising at an average height of 1,000 feet, the Despicablimp will travel approximately 
20,000 miles over the next few months going from coast-to-coast and points in between.
You may be lucky enough to be in an area where you can see this amazing blimp flying right over you!

You can follow along for yourself and see where it is heading next! Visit the
Despicablimp Command Center at to track
the airship via GPS and see the tour stops it is making along the way.  Fans can
tweet sightings of the blimp or post photos to Instagram or Flickr using
#despicablimp to be featured on the site, and for a chance to win
weekly prize giveaways. There is even a Despicablimp sweepstakes, where one lucky 
Despicable Me fan will win a trip for four to the Hollywood world premiere of the
film and get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to ride in the blimp!
