The "Unofficial" Banana Hat Challenge Video
C. Mehrl Bennett: "This is the Final Official 3 minute video of the Banana hat Challenge which aired at Fluxfests (Facebook) group Sunday, March 21, 2021, on Day 2 of Fluxfest 2021 Online. The participants were performing this fluxus event: 'Balance a banana on your head.' After which it was assumed they would 'Eat the banana'. I wrote the Banana hat Challenge event instruction(s) as inspired by a dream I had of meeting a work colleague at a shopping mall; As we conversed I could not take my eyes off the rotting banana nesting atop her carefully coiffed hairdo."
