Hey, I just saw that episode of Gilmore Girls and you can see the "Mai Tiki" letters on the bottom of one of the statues by the doorway. The whole "Oasis" house was pretty cool.

You can only see a little of the house from this pic:

If anyone is ambitious enough to go rent the dvd, the episode is on Season 3, Disc 2 and the title is "Eight O'Clock at the Oasis."

This morning I saw an animated ad for Vanilla Frosted Mini Wheats set in Hawaii. At the end of the commercial a huge Moai identical to the Kahiki fireplace sings on the beach, with a tiki masked guy banging away on drums in the background as kanes & wahines continue their hula.

Thanks. I'll have to keep my eye out for that one.

Reminds me of one of my favorite commercials (and the cereal wasn't half bad either) from way back in the late 60's...Kellogg's "Puffa Puffa Rice"...which had a Hawaiian marketing angle to it.

Here's a very, very poor clip of one of the commercials:

keep an eye out for the new Fanta "Bamboocha" add campaign, it has most of my tiki collection hiding somewhere in it as well as about half a dozen of my paintings

cheers
Bob

I saw a station promo for the 10 Network here in Oz and my eyes nearly popped out when I saw some of the network "personalities" hanging out at a very authentic Tiki Bar. Really wierd to see this sort of this on Australian TV!

One of the great things about Tiki is how it speaks to people in the creative field, who pick up on it and re-introduce it into pop culture with their own work. There is a very popular TV daily soap here in Germany called "Verliebt in Berlin" (In Love in/with Berlin) that has a Tiki Bar set in it. Not many scenes are written for it, but I know from a colleague of his that the production designer was inspired by the BOT and decided that if a bar, it would be a Tiki bar.

Probably no one in the production company, and 98% of the viewers know what that is, but they have registered it unconsciously. I assume the same is the case with your Australian show. And to those in the know, its like a secret language, saying hey, there is a designer who is part of the cult.

Not exactly Tiki on TV...but I saw the San Diego Bali Hai's owner(?) Sam Choy on the Iron Chef America tonight. The secret ingredient was clams.

I was watching the latest episode of The Venture Bros last night (Season 3 - "Home is Where The Hate Is") and my wife and I thought we spied a tiki tattoo on the arm of Sgt. Hatred -



In a later scene we got a better look. Turns out the tattoo is an angry "tiki-esque" face made of flipped and distorted Sargent stripes. Genius!

And now since I did a classic ME TOO!!! let's veer it a lil bit off topic as well:
