    Look Inside New BTS and Minions Pop-Up Experience in West Hollywood

    - Advertisement -

    The new interactive BTS and Minions pop-up experience launched in the City of West Hollywood on Friday at 8505 Santa Monica Boulevard, near the La Cienega Boulevard intersection to promote Illumination’s Despicable Me 4. Running through July 3, this pop-up offers a unique chance to explore set recreations and purchase exclusive items featuring BTS and Minions mashup art and BTS as Minions merchandise in a fully themed retail environment.

    Pop-Up Experience Highlights

    The experience takes place inside the treehouse of a new villainous character, Poppy Prescott, a member of the BTS ARMY. The pop-up leans heavily on the retail element, so make sure you bring your wallet (a set of BTS Minions figures costs $100). There are no lifesize Minion characters or members BTS waiting to greet you at the door, nor do you get a free goody bag on the way out, but the resale value for the exclusive items sold could be profitable for its hype element alone.

    Despite being sold out, the experience was fairly empty when I attended on Friday evening. Walk-ins are welcome, and with the event running for a little over a week, there are plenty of opportunities to step into the world of the new Minions movie to be released in theaters July 3.

    In the new Despicable Me movie, Gru welcomes a new member to the family, Gru Jr., who is intent on tormenting his dad. Their peaceful existence is disrupted when criminal mastermind Maxime Le Mal escapes from prison and vows revenge against Gru.

    Activities and Features

    This pop-up offers fans to basically shop while immersing themselves in the world of BTS and Minions. You can hang out in Poppy’s room, explore her pink kitchen, play with her toys, and shop some more for exclusive goodies.
