We seriously can’t stop smiling. Why you ask? Well we just watched, Despicable Me star Gru in his very first TV appearance. The former villain-turned-amazing father of three stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Thursday afternoon to promote his summer blockbuster Despicable Me 2 and to dazzle audiences with his sweet moves.
Dressed exactly like his cartoon alterego (freakishly large nose and all) Steve Carell takes a seat beside host Ellen DeGeneres and stays in character for the entire interview. It’s pretty damn impressive considering Gru’s over-the-top accent and oddly shaped physique — but of course Carell was comedic perfection while DeGeneres struggled to contain her giggles.
Take a look at the video below to watch Gru move and groove through the Ellen audience and don’t forget to catch Despicable Me 2 when it hits theaters Friday July 3.
