Celebrity Sighting: Shaq Meets The Minions at Universal Studios’ Despicable Me

Sometimes you look at someone getting a theme park escort and wonder, are they a celebrity? With Shaquille O’Neal there isn’t any question when the big man is in town.

Shaq was touring Universal Orlando Resort on July 9, 2012 and encountered some tiny, yellow friends during his visit. The mischievous minions met the basketball veteran in front of the all-new attraction, Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, at the beginning of his day at Universal Studios Florida. This brand-new ride is a fun and heart-warming journey that combines a new storyline, new animation, the latest 3-D technology – plus the heart, outrageous humor and memorable characters of the hit animated film.
