Watch 2 Dachshunds Inhabit Minions From “Despicable Me”

Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund and His Brother, Oakley, Hop Around in a Hilarious Video.

Those Minions, they are so despicable! It appears this weekend they may have broken the Internet.

Thanks to some help from Crusoe the Celebrity Daschshund and his brother, Oakley, the latest Minion-themed video has taken the Interwebs by storm.

The Minions, those lovable yellow, pill-shaped scamps from the Despicable Me movies, are set to star in their own feature film, with a July 10 release date. But not waiting for the movie to come out, Crusoe and Oakley, a pair of Wiener Dachshunds, donned their own Minion costumes — presumably made from actual Minion stuffed toys with holes cut into them to allow proper Wiener access — and danced and played to Minion sound effects.

The final cut is priceless, particularly when Crusoe and Oakley chase a ball down a long hallway, the Minion head and arms flailing frantically as the Minion voices scream with delight.

This is just the latest and greatest star turn for Crusoe and Oakley, as this loop of Vines can attest.
