Has Marana gone Hollywood?
As anyone with kids knows, the movie “Despicable Me 2” comes out July 3. Studios often find unique ways to promote their films and some of the characters in this movie just lend themselves to being featured on the side of a blimp. Viola … witness the Despicablimp.
The blimp and crew were in Marana on Monday and Tuesday tooling around and taking in the sights of the Sonoran Desert. Oh, yeah, they were advertising the movie, too.
Our municipal airport sees a lot of traffic every year and even the occasional blimp. Met Life brings its craft here every February for the Accenture Match Play Championship. But it’s safe to say that we’ve never seen a flying machine quite like this one.
