A man from Kalgoorlie in Western Australia is being taunted online by someone dressed in a minion costume. So far they have stolen a chunk of his front lawn, posted photos of it on a specifically-created Facebook page, and uploaded videos of themselves — in minion costume — dancing with a shovel.
Bradley Nicklin woke last Sunday morning to find a small section of his front lawn had disappeared. Realising how meticulously the lawn had been removed, Nicklin checked his home's CCTV camera and discovered something truly horrifying: a minion. A minion stealing his lawn with a shovel.
Behold and look upon the hellscape bestowed upon Bradley's lawn.
Nicklin believes the mystery minion is one of his mates taking advantage of how much he prides himself on his lawn. "I've got a funny feeling it's one of my mates because I sent a Snapchat earlier that weekend saying how good my grass was," he told Yahoo.
However, things escalated when the minion began appearing on social media, too. The Facebook account "Carl Minion" has videos of the criminal minion watering a lawn, photos of him riding motorbikes and running along the footpath with Nicklin's lawn in hand.
Truly, a horrifying spectacle.
Carl Minion and Bradley Nicklin did not immediately respond to a BuzzFeed News request for comment.
