Remember the awkward photo of Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, Chris Paul, and LeBron James on a banana boat that surfaced over the summer? Yeeeeeeeah, ya do! How you could forget it?!

It was captured off the coast of the Bahamas where D-Wade, CP3, LeBron, and Carmelo Anthony were vacationing with their spouses. And apparently, Union is the one who is to blame for it.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, Union revealed that all of the guys were worried about what might happen if the paparazzi snapped a photo of them on the banana boat, so they initially stayed far, far away from it. That is, until Union eventually talked them into getting on it.

“Everyone was very geeked to get on this banana,” she said. “We had been a little nervous the first couple days about paparazzi and getting photographed in a compromising position or something…It was the only thing we had not tried on the boat. I was like, ‘Guys, we have to do the banana. No one is even going to see this!’”

Good call, Gabby!

Check out the video above to hear her talk about the vacation. She also discusses the amazing “bedazzled” jeans that D-Wade used to wear when she first met him.
