Keisuke Yamada Creates Banana Art That Will Haunt Your Nightmares (And Breakfasts)

Banana00

We all know that bananas and banana peels are excellent sources of potassium and physical comedy, respectively, but did you know that they could also be used as a medium for art that will alternately amuse you and haunt you to your grave? Neither did I until I saw the work of Japanese "banana engraver" Keisuke Yamada, who has carved presumably edible versions of all manner of pop culture figures and/or mind-bending horrors.

Check out a few of our favorites -- including characters from Attack on Titan, The Simpsons, Alien, Transformers, Castle in the Sky and Star Wars -- below, and don't worry: If one of these pops up in your breakfast tomorrow, you can always defend yourself with Yamada's flintlock pistol. The flintlock pistol is also carved from a banana.

‘The Simpsons’ Are Getting LEGO-fied

The Simpsons Blocko Store
FOX

 

The town of Springfield has conquered almost every medium: TV, video games, film, comics, home video, books, t-shirts, radio (if you have The Simpsons on while you look away from the TV), figure skating, etc.

And yet Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and the rest of Springfield's denizens hadn't made the jump to that all-important mode of expression, the Lego set, until now.

Watch Every Movie Reference From Seasons 1-5 Of ‘The Simpsons’ In One Clip [Video]

Simpsons lede

I doubt any sitcom in television history has employed as many movie references as The Simpsons, or been as clever about it. It's been a staple of the series throughout its run, and catching as many of them as possible is a bit of an obsession for some, including Bryan Menegus, who did us all the wonderful favor of cutting together every movie reference from the first five seasons of The Simpsons into one video. You can watch the whole video after the cut, but I should say that it's about 20 minutes long and pretty much impossible to stop watching once you've started. You've been warned.

New ‘The Simpsons’ Sneakers From Converse Will Look Great With Your Greyhound Fur Tuxedo

Simpsons kicks header

In terms of branding, Matt Groening has always been the anti-Bill Watterson. Whereas the Calvin and Hobbes cartoonist was opposed to nearly any use of his creations on merchandise, Groening was never shy about his desire to see characters from The Simpsons on t-shirts, posters, sneakers, and nearly anything else you could think of. The strategy paid off: Simpsons merchandise, seemingly omnipresent at one point, served as great advertising and played a role in making the show the longest-running American television sitcom of all time. And while that movement has died down a bit over the years, it hasn't completely gone away. Case in point: these new Converse sneakers, featuring Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie, available now on Converse's website. You can check out pictures of each below. Feel free to get a pair of Bart Simpson kicks, grab a Butterfinger, and be transported to another world. And by another world, I mean 1993.
