Performed in one take, THE BANANA MONKEYS bring you something a little more on the idol side with their new promotional video “Nani-mono”. Starting in a classroom and ending up on a stage facsimile for a taste of live performances, the group provides more cute looks than you’d probably expect. There’s a little bit of a yankee look as things start out: swords and bats are carried around menacingly. But when THE BANANA MONKEYS get to the train like their own version of “JMK”, things get really endearing. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen this, but the group execute a live outfit change (discreetly behind a towel). “Nani-mono” is probably the most accessible I’ve ever seen the MONKEY girls, and I’d recommend it to you in a heartbeat. And as a bonus for you banana fiends, THE BANANA MONKEYS provide a version of “Nani-mono” with the live audio to give you a taste of the mayhem involved with a production of this concept.
