Bonita Bananas sales soaring in Germany

When the legendary Bayern Munich and German international goalkeeper Oliver Kahn hung up his boots and retired from professional football, Bonita Bananas’ sales figures in Germany dropped considerably, especially so in Dortmund.

For all those who are too young to remember Oliver Kahn’s banana showerings at the Signal Iduna Park, here’s a video to capture your imagination.

However, after recent happenings in Mönchengladbach, Bonita Bananas have seen their sales figures steeply on the rise. Inspired by an episode in the DFB-Pokal semifinal match between Borussia Mönchengladbach and FC Bayern Munich, Bonita Bananas have been quick to act and have launched a new campaign in Germany with a brand new logo:

In the meantime, Bayern Munich striker Nils Petersen was unavailable for comment regarding the whole situation, but it is believed that his lawyers may press charges against Bonita for using his picture without his permission. We at BayernForum.com believe that he should just concentrate on football, as his chances are certainly SLIPPING away…

    To be honest banana’s were still common among our strikers… look at Gomez, he slips often! Difference is, Olic and Petersen miss, but when Gomez slips he scores
