She says at the beginning that olive oil was used on the center portion. Olive oil can go rancid. Bad idea.
Overall, this just seems to be a bad idea, the little oil that is in a banana will also go rancid. You are setting yourself up for causing more harm than good with this nonsense.

Maybe it would work better if she used it on a table made of monkeypod?

Although interestingly banana oil (not the fruit, of course) was used in fabric covered airplane manufacture and now model airplanes as it's a compound in dope (the liquid, not as in drugs) and it also is used as a solvent for some varnishes and nitrocellulose lacquers. (According to the sum of all knowledge, aka Wikipedia)

In the Navy I used banana oil to test fit respirators because it's got a readily identified smell (um..smells like bananas) and, during inspections, if I soaked a small piece of gauze in the oil then stuffed it up in a ventilation duct the compartment had a 'clean' smell. If it smells clean it must be clean!
