The banana crossing phenomenon

The video showcases an unconventional yet effective method of transporting bananas in Costa Rica. The country, known for its rich biodiversity and agricultural exports, has found a unique way to move its produce.

The bananas are attached to a wire that moves quickly across the road, requiring vehicles to stop momentarily.
