Hey there, movie buffs and comedy lovers! If you caught the Super Bowl action, you probably saw some epic ads.
But one that’s got everyone talking is from Illumination, the brains behind Despicable Me. They dropped a 30-second teaser for the upcoming Despicable Me 4, and it’s pure gold.

So, what’s the scoop? Well, imagine this: the ad kicks off with a computer screen and the words “comic royalty” typed in. Then, a voice chimes in, talking about how AI is shaking up the world of art. But here’s the kicker—the images it generates? Hilariously off!
Think Steve Carrell and Will Ferrell’s faces plastered on jesters. Or two gals attempting yoga but ending up with a total of five legs between them. And don’t even get me started on the handshake scene with a hand sporting more fingers than usual!
But the best part? The ad ends with two minions cracking up in front of the computer screen. “With artificial intelligence, the future is in good hands,” says the voiceover, leaving us in stitches.
Now, onto the social media frenzy! Fans are loving Illumination’s playful take on AI. In a world where AI-generated art is on the rise, this ad is like a breath of fresh air. And props to Illumination’s CEO, Chris Meledandri, for keeping it real about AI in the past.
So, mark your calendars for July 4th, because Despicable Me 4 is hitting theaters with a bang! Get ready for laughs, mischief, and a whole lot of minion madness. Who knew AI could be this entertaining?
