Watch Bananas Turn Into a Surprisingly Effective Musical Instrument

This music has some real a-peel.
YouTube channel Unbox Therapy has made this viral video in which a guy plays bananas as a music instrument.
With a little help from Makey Makey, a gizmo that lets any object become a touchpad while serving as a button for your computer, these bananas go from a potassium-fueled food to a rhythmic sensation.
Sure, the only time you’ve seen a banana as an instrument is probably while walking by a homeless guy who used it as a drumstick while not making imaginary calls when it served as his cell phone. But make no mistake — or should we say Makey Makey no mistake? — these bananas are definitely making music.
This needs to go next level, though. Cantaloupe would make a heck of a drum, a celery stalk seems like a natural fit for a ukulele and a sticking a carrot on a pomegranate could easily double for a makeshift maraca.
