Thanks for your thoughts on this, Cherry! While the authenticity certificate is technically physical, it’s a pretty standard thing, and really only proof that their banana taped to a wall is the genuine thing, while any other bananas taped to a wall are not. It says they’re allowed to replace the banana apparently? So the whole thing is a bit absurd, and that’s most likely the point. That prankster, Cattelan.
