Sexy Banana Spokeslady



This is really four commercials back to back. I like that sentient bananas are willing to strip their skins off and sacrifice themselves for humans.

Dana Michel



Yes, it appears this "dance" is performed with clown nose and ripped panties around the ankles. But why not get the explanation of her "art" direct from the horse's mouth?
