Banana Booty Breaks Stereotypes of Men in Gorilla Suits (Video)

Submitted by on April 19, 2009 4 Comments

Banana Booty is one of 10 grand-prize winners in HBO‘s Flight of the Conchords Lip Dub Fansterpiece contest.

The contest called for fans to submit short films designed to show reverance to the hit HBO comedy series.

Pitzer College senior Justin Weitzel just happened to have a gorilla suit in his car and came across the Flight of the Conchords Bilboard at the corner of Haight and Steiner St in San Francisco according to the Claremont Courier:

“It hit me. It was a nice, natural frame, and I liked the ambiguity of the street corner. You couldn’t tell what city it was in. I happened to have a gorilla suit, and I felt the urge to start dancing there.”

The film was made on a laptp and webcam and used the software iStopMotion.

Mr Weitzel plays homage to the banana in his movie, very apropo for the gorilla theme.
