Photo above shows Nancy Trujillo with some (not even all!) of her minion merchandise.
Our office manager, Nancy Trujillo, makes everything happen. This office would run into the ground with out her. But she is known for more than just her amazing organization skills. If there is something everyone at Latino USA knows it’s that Nancy is obsessed with the Minions. The Minions are the little yellow animated characters from the Despicable Me movies and now are becoming the stars themselves in the upcoming Minions movie.
At first one of our producers Antonia Cereijido thought that the Minions obsession was just a Nancy thing. Then she started to notice that a lot of her Latino friends were posting Minion-related things online. After watching the first trailer for the upcoming Minions movie a question began to haunt her: Are the Minions Latino?
Antonia got to ask the man who would know: Pierre Coffin. Coffin one of the co-directors of the entire Despicable Me franchise and the man behind the voice of all the Minions.
Here are more pictures of Nancy and minions (she’s traveled the world with them!):
