In the beginning it’s just a man and his monkey, eeking out a living on the street. The man juggles and the monkey, seeing a delicious banana sitting at a greengrocer’s stall, takes off like a shot so as to get a taste. The man is quick to give chase but the monkey has already begun to cut a swath of destruction in its wake. By merely eating the banana and tossing its peel to one side, a burly motorcyclist slips and crashes into a ladder. That ladder, in turn, has a painter on it who falls backwards into a full shopping cart of vegetables on a downward slope. Suddenly we’ve left the man and monkey and are watching as the cart crashes into a bicyclist, distracting a judge, who steps on a boy’s skateboard, and in the process detaches a baby from its caregiver. Eventually the baby goes flying, the city streets are a mess, and in a glorious twist of fate that defies description, the world explodes into a fabulous burst of bananas bananas bananas.
