Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan duct-taped a banana to a wall as part of an exhibit at Art Basel Miami Beach. The piece, called "Comedian," sold for $120,000. Then another artist, David Datuna, stunned onlookers this weekend when he peeled the banana off the wall and unapologetically ate it.

Food and beverage brands are parodying the avant-garde display.
