CHECK IT OUT GUYS WE MADE THE NEWS!
If you’re a Supernatural viewer the name, Misha Collins may be familiar to you. Collins is the actor behind Castiel – the angel of the Lord who is often the Winchester’s wingman. What you may not know as a casual viewer is that Misha Collins is a bit of a trickster as well.
Twitter is Collins’ playground and his followers – minions as they like to be called – are his playthings. For the record – it’s a mutually beneficial relationship.
This December, TV Guide held the first ever Fan Favorite Cover poll. Supernatural fans took to the internet and voted like crazy. Collin’s got involved by encouraging his minions to vote . On a tweet on October 24th, 2010 – Collins quipped, “Warner Bros. just called & they’ll give me a live rhinoceros if the three guys wearing earth tones win this poll.” A short time later he tweeted, “I can’t do this alone & I’m not one to hog winnings, so if we win, i’ll carve the rhino up & mail little dried pieces of it to each of you.”
Supernatural fans won the cover – and with that the minions won their “rhino pieces”.
If there’s anything you must know about these minions it’s that they are a dedicated and aggressive bunch.
Being a minion is not without its rewards.
Now before anyone calls the animal rights activists – he’s not cutting up a real rhino. What Collins has done is quite ingenious. Each of the 366 fans who sent him a self-addressed envelope received a puzzle piece from one of six puzzles. Yes, it’s a puzzle of a rhino.
His challenge? Find the other fans with puzzle pieces from the same puzzle and put it together. On the back of the puzzle? An email address. The first 200 fans to put their puzzle together and email the address will move on to “the next round.” It’s hard to predict what that next round might be.
The minions are mobilizing. As the first puzzle pieces began to arrive, minions began utilizing social media to work together. If you’re lucky enough to have one of the puzzle pieces – head to some of these check in points to meet up with others!

Wish them luck and may the best minions win!
