While promoting her movie Friends With Kids on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, ubiquitous fembot Megan Fox encountered the greatest trauma of her adult life: a giant banana?

“My only real job that I ever had,” before becoming an actress, explained Fox, “was that I worked at a little smoothie shop in Florida. Once a week, usually on Fridays, someone had to dress up as a piece of fruit and go out and stand by the highway.” Fox recalled: “I was a banana, a giant banana.”

Cue an Ellen staff member dressed in a trauma-evoking banana suit (think Hagrid meets Bananas in Pajamas) creeping up, making a “banana noise” (apparently that’s what that was), and scaring a squeal out of Fox. See the inexplicably random clip below.
