Bananas and Firecrackers

My grandmother was fascinated with the limitless boundaries of the internet. I remember when she used to always say things like:

Grandma: Boy, I'm hungry. I want some Chinese food. Can you find us some Chinese food on that internet thingy of yours?

Mumbles: Yes, Grandma.

Grandma: Well I'll be a monkey's uncle!

Mumbles: You can't be a monkeys uncle, grandma.

Grandma: Can you find a video of two girls shitting in a cup on that internet?

Mumbles: Grandma! Of course you can!

Grandma: How about a video of a man with helmet strapped full of bananas with firecrackers in them where he blows them up one at a time?

Mumbles: Grandma! Don't be silly, of course you can't!

Until now. William Lamson is an artist in Brooklyn and does some pretty weird but sometimes cool stuff. A couple of his videos after the jump.

Here is the promised banana video. It's pretty boring after about 1 minute. The next one is more interesting.

This video is titled "Emerge." See if you can figure it out. Skippomac had a pretty good guess and I'm gonna have too go with him cause he likes reading history. And history is really boring so he's gotta be smart cause he sure as hell ain't no fun or much to look at neither!

I'll have him put his guess in the comments so you retards get a chance to speculate first.

There is lots on the internet for balloon-likers. Even more for balloon-lovers.
