Before it goes viral we’ll catch it early for you. That video of a spider creepily crawling out from inside the skin of a banana was created by Kaleb Lechowski, a 22 year old animations expert.
Kaleb has achieved some notable acclaim before with this sci-fi digital short that garnered some well deserved Hollywood attention. We doubt it’ll be long before his next viral animation.
It’s pretty good, although you don’t need to be an expert in this things to ask the question why would he be filming a banana anyway. Apart from that the way the arachnid falls out of the skin and flips on to its body is pretty reminiscent of World War Z fast zombies. Digital CGI is getting incredibly good these days with more and more examples of imagery that blurs the line between reality and pixels.
So there you go, it’s a snooty ‘fake’ from us, but nice try Kaleb. But as some commentators are saying “I don’t care if it’s fake, I’m still eating an apple.”
It may be GGI but it’s enough to make you think twice about banans
