What could be cooler 1960's Pop Art than Batman and Tiki ??

In the 1966 first episode of the TV series, Batman visits the "What a Way to Go-Go" nightclub which had both Tiki torches and 2 large Tikis outside...



This episode was also significant for guest star (and future Bond girl) Jill St. John as well as introducing the Batusi dance craze.



Here's the YouTube clip...

An episode of Cheers shows Coach making his famous Kon Tiki Tiki drink complete with coconut mug. Spoiler alert- he throws the whole thing in a blender and destroys it.

nothing came up in a search, so i don't think this has been mentioned and this thread
is probably the most appropriate.

one of the documentaries by aussie waterman Ben Cropp "Legends of the South Pacific"

touching on Vanuatu islands featuring; the vine jumpers, Micheners' inspirations and
writings, Blighs' visit during his epic journey back to civilisation following the
mutiny aboard HMS Bounty and other imagery of possible interest to TCers.

the youtube clip doesn't appear to be of very good quality and is unfortunately a
little short.

Yup, it's just the basics, ma'am, but one is grateful that there are no grave mistakes, or the use of words like "tacky" and "kitschy" in it:

Maybe I'm just selfish, but I don't want it to return to popularity. When it becomes popular, it can become unpopular. Passe. Instead of being the cool guy with the retro tiki bar in the basement, we're the lame guys with last year's trend in the basement. It's not going to stop me from continuing, but it does make me wary of the building of trends.

I wouldn't worry so much about that. The media has "discovered" the comeback of Tiki in regular intervals for some time now, since about ouh, 1995:



If it is still hip after 16 years, it will be so for an unforeseeable future. The Sufis have a saying "The Secret protects Itself".
(Otto is on my right, above, of course)

Just watched Dexter season 6, episode 5, and at 42:33 Dexters sister is looking at an apartment to rent and in the background you can see a yellow sign with blue writing that says Tiki Bar.
