Video: Japanese Banana Commercials

When I think of banana commercials, the only thing that comes to my mind is the Chiquita Banana version. But in Japan, there are lots, lots more. Involving dancing kids wearing yellow suits. And a guy who sprouts bananas out of his head. And kids crying banana tears. Stuff like that. Watch the videos after the jump.
