Hoards of 'Gentleminions' turn up to cinema wearing suits for The Rise ...
As the Gentleminions trend has taken off among Gen Z, one teenager has claimed he would “regret it for the rest of my life” if he didn’t take part in it.
The TikTok trend involves groups of, usually, teenage boys turning up to the cinema to watch Minions: The Rise of Gru dressed in suits and mimicking the minions.
Some cinemas have gone as far as banning groups dressed in “formal attire” as the trend has reportedly left children “in tears”.
But one teenager has said that if he didn’t participate in the trend he would have regretted it for the rest of his days.
Sam Hart, a year 10 student at Mosman High School in Australia, organised a cinema trip with a group of friends specifically so they could take part in the Gentleminions trends.
Writing a piece in the Sydney Morning Herald, Hart explained: “I first heard about the trend of teenagers dressing up in their best suits to watch Minions: The Rise of Gru, the latest release in the MCU (Minions Cinematic Universe), via TikTok.
“My friends and I immediately thought that if we didn’t engage in it, we’d regret it for the rest of our lives. We talked it out, set a date and arrived in our formal outfits.”
