Bigpond's banana bender

SPOT the differences.

Telstra Bigpond has given Coffs Harbour's internationally famous Big Banana a makeover.

Sharp eyed locals may have noticed the classic kombi which stars in the Bigpond broadband advertisement posed in front of the Big Banana for filming recently.

But they may be surprised by the result, if they look closely at the final image.

Pictured below is the Big Banana as photographed by Coffs Coast Advocate photographer Bruce Thomas last week.

Pictured above is the Bigpond promotional flyer which features the famous fruit.

The bendy beauty has lost its hillside and its look- out, most of its signage and half its railings, while its roadway and its power lines have had cosmetic surgery and a remake. The gardens have been digitally re-landscaped and its colours have been brightened with some Photoshop 'make-up'.

How many differences can you spot?
