Neo evades me

Yanna sent me a picture of her using a banana as a phone (what a smile she had too :D). Surprisingly, Yanna was not referencing the well known “Banana phone” song, but instead was imitating the following Keanu Reeves picture:

My instinct told me immediately that this was an edited image from the Matrix. I went ahead and watched the “Escaping from work” scene, to find only the following shot:

I now thought that perhaps another film had Keanu actually using a banana as a phone. My search failed to return any results. I went back to a more generic search, and found a fan site that had the following shot:
