CNN Replaces Eve’s ‘Forbidden Fruit’ With A Banana To Highlight Fake News
By Izza Sofia, 06 Nov 2018
CNN first rolled out its ‘Facts First’ campaign in 2017, where its ultra simple and odd commercial saw the news network using an apple and a banana to combat fake news.
In this continuation released ahead of the midterm elections, CNN returns with a follow-up that emphasizes on facts by highlighting how an apple will always be an apple.
The ad features world-famous scenes re-enacted with a banana instead of the aforementioned fruit. For instance, a banana drops on the head of Isaac Newton, leading him to discover gravity, while the “forbidden fruit” that Eve had passed to Adam is replaced with a banana.
The spot ends with the line, “Lies can become truth, if we let them,” together with the ‘Facts First’ tag.
