I have two ideas.
Kids like them because they 'speak funny', do silly things meant to be jokes that you laugh. You don't need to understand the language to understand the funny nature of them.

Moms like them because they remind them of their own kids. As in, they speak incomprehensible,run around wreck and wreck shit, can be dressed in many different outfits for their amusement.
>>
>>78334773
This makes sense.

>Implying a bunch of soulless marketing experts didn't spend a small fortune on sticking together aspects that appeal to those little paste-eating dipshits and soccermoms

Somewhere, an intern can't sleep. Because they know they can't ever turn back what they did. The humming of 'potato' and 'banana' keeps them awake in torment forever.
>>
>>78334773

I know people who refer to their kids as minions. Well, mothers. Mothers do this. You're totally right.

Not even for their own amusement but control. Everyone wants little things to boss around it seems, well the normies do.

Simple design. You can slap them on anything.
Parents won't question this.
Most of all, kids are stupid.
If you market shit long enough it may catch on.
In this case it led to a shit tsunami.
Minions are still being used in ads.
They won't fucking die and stupid kids/parents and marketing firms are to blame.
Boycott all the minion garbage.

Stop acting so damn surprised about this. They're very marketable characters, appeal to a wide audience due to the simplicity of their designs and behavior and because they have no real spoken language they are universal. You don't need an intense case-study anaylisis to figure this out.

They're not the demonic spawn of some of an evil mind or some plan to take over the world. They're cartoon characters that are popular right now. Big deal. Stop feeling so threatened by shit like this. Things like this have always existed and will keep existing.
>>
>>78335917
Honestly, this. It's pretty obvious why they're popular, it's just another example of the fans of something being much more annoying and obnoxious than the actual characters themselves, by constantly referencing it and posting them all over the internet and social media at every opportunity. Like MLP.

They dont, but they are just so forced down their throat they accept it. I watched tv today with my son, 6 out of 10 spots were about the fucking minions, on products that have sit to do with them

I like you, nephews and nieces only exist as a way to torture your siblings. In my family it also became a trend to gift the little ones the most annoying loud toys you could imagine simply because their parents are huge dipshits.

I'll never understand people who have children at this time an age. You've got to work like a slave because of the recession so what you get is a day a week of "quality time" with a partner who's just as stressed as you and a likely idiot raised by shitty schools and fucking advertisements.

Instinct to reproduce plus societal pressure. I'm a faggot so having kids always looks like a gigantic ego trip to me. There are better, cheaper ways to boost your ego. Like cocaine.

Not that anon but you're an idiot Christfag and everything is wrong about your statement. Having kids takes a huge toll on the environment and I won't even comment on how fucking stupid the idea that only kids can make for a meaningful, deep life. If you have kids that are not adopted and you think you're being generous, you're a colossal hypocrite.

>>78340235
I've got toddlers in my family, everyone feels this need to keep them entertained and they look at me funny when I give them 5 minutes of attention and then do my own business. I care for those kids but I don't think all my time should revolve around them.
>>
>>78340276
Are you trying to imply that having kids is somehow deep and meaningful and selfless?
>>
>>78340418
It's the Christian's choice excuse for breeding and feel good about it
>>
Lots and lots and lots of corporate money behind them constantly pushing them.
>>
>>78340276
Oh boy another idiot that thinks having kids is something that HAS to be done in life.

If I wanted kids, I'd rather adopt an unhappy kid and help him or her out over just reproducing my own, leaving the other kid sad and lonely.
