At first sight, it seems very true but it is more likely that the banana is being moved with the help of some kind of mechanical device. Generally, the video looks genuine and Lab Banana seems like some kind of living organism which is breathing and moving. It appears to be behaving like some kind of large insect, but it’s more likely a prank.
If we look at the scientific side of things, it can be said with 100% guarantee that this incident is absolutely impossible because no living organs are found inside the banana, like lungs, intestines, etc.
Various types of speculations are being made on social media since the videos were published, where one side wants to check its veracity while the other side is trying to enjoy it by adding different types of puns to it.
If we talk about the veracity of this video, then this video is completely untrue, it is not scientifically possible for any such type of banana or other vegetables to be alive. There can be two reasons behind it appearing like this. Either it is being run by some kind of mechanical device and looks like it is moving and is alive or it is being shown behaving like a living banana by VFX technology.
This is not the first time that this type of prank or artificial video has tried to trick people on social media. Earlier also many other attempts have been made and they also have been successful in tricking people and getting huge traction on the internet.
