A town was left baffled after a prankster painted all its bins – to look like MINIONS.
Residents are scratching their head after ten of the popular yellow characters from smash hit film Despicable Me showed up overnight.
Locals living in Peacehaven, East Sussex, have got no idea who painted the bins to look like Minions – and even attached trademark goggle-eyes and arms.
The rubbish bins, dubbed ‘Binions’, have been spotted everywhere from outside shops to park benches and bus stops.
The cheeky characters were painted the distinctive Minion yellow faces and blue dungarees.
Nobody knows who is behind the prank which came to light on Monday morning.
Local Daniel Moon, said: “We have no idea who is responsible or why they’ve done it, but it’s quite amusing. People have been going around trying to find all ten.
“I thought it might be something to promote an upcoming festival, as they have a minion appearing there, but Mayor Wayne Botting has denied it. It’s a complete mystery.”
Peacehaven Town Council have no clue where the colourful bins have come from but said they “admire” the creativity of the person who did it.
A spokesperson from Lewes District Council added: “These bins have certainly drawn attention and brought comments and smiles from people passing by.
“Anything that encourages people to use the litter bins provided is a good thing as we want to keep the district clean and tidy for all to enjoy.”
The cartoon characters are famed for their cute-but-evil ways, and are currently starring in their own standalone film Minions.
