The Banana Bear Truck

The Banana Bear

You have to hand it to the Finns. They are a weird bunch! This is the Polar Bear Banana Truck. I noticed the truck in Handen as it was heading for a filling station near the hospital. I asked the truck driver about the banana bear. He smiled as he blamed the previous owner. The artist is Mika Jeffremoff.

An airbrushed beauty! Wonder what little children think when this vehicles passes by? I see other parts of the world are as un-subtle as Americans!

Great photo!

I like it! Much nicer to look at than some I have seen.

Yeah, the banana industry was never successful here in Finland because the polar bears always ate everything!

Interesting.

He blames the previous owner, but I'm quite sure he likes it this way. A bit of show off as a truck, but a real airbrush masterpiece.
