Bruised Banana

Scroll

Project

An icon reborn. 


Featuring cameos from club legends past and present, we pay homage to Arsenal's iconic '91 Bruised Banana kit. 


Directed by Harry Cauty in collaboration with the brains at The Midnight Club, we spent a day with at Arsenal’s training complex having just about as much fun as you can have with a greenscreen. 


The result brought the kit from early 90’s cult classic into the modern day with weird and wonderful scenes including David Luiz riding a banana-shooting canon, Hector Bellerin stuck inside Ian Wright’s gold tooth and a cameo from the late, great Arsenal super-fan Maria Petri. 


All tracked to the sound of Bakar’s befitting yellow-inspired earworm ‘Hell N Back’.
