For Sabu some screen shots of SNL "Stairway to Heaven" skit featuring Bill Murray




Other SNL Tiki/South Seas images

Chris Farley doing the ritual good luck weird hula dance


Bobby Moynihan in his parents basement tiki bar in a recent episode that has been covered already here on TC


No tiki or Polynesian images but a pic of Billy Crystal as Buddy Young Jr. reviewing Don Ho's Blue Flame Restaurant


Screen shots of SCTV, the old rival of SNL in their famous "Polynesian Town" which has also been covered in TC. Here's John Candy as Johnny LaRue in his "Luau Room"




And finally Dan Aykroyd playing a TV evangelist named Jack the Lord with a giant church decorated in a South Seas motif. Hilarious and rare. Pre SNL days for Aykroyd and shot during his "Second City" days in Chicago (also pre SCTV).




This comedy project was edited later into MR. MIKES MONDO VIDEO which is a DVD one can find on the internet.

A new interior design show (Red Hot Design) had a tiki-themed episode called "Tiki Bar Brouhaha."
For whatever reason, this translated into much of the show revolving around the decision to include & build an 8' birdcage.
The only tikis in the episode where a few palm fronds painted with scowling tiki-ish faces and a surfboard painted with a "tiki totem" design.

Here you see one of the finer builds in the episode (the bamboo back bar) along with the questionable bird cage:


Here are some of the few tiki-like items in the episode:


A good example of the episode's tiki content is this clip:

Anybody seen the Jimmy Fallon promo tonight during SNL? It was a parody on the infamous Tiki Bar scene in GOODFELLAS. The commercial tries to replicate the long handheld shot, introducing mob characters in the Bamboo Lounge. Although there are people in Aloha shirts and plastic leis, there is a big shortage of good tiki set dressing. Despite the set, the homage to this historic film and scene was cool to watch. If anyone can get images of this "Tonight Show" promo, please share. For sure NBC should air the promo just before airing the "Tonight Show" Monday through Friday.

Here's the YouTube link to the Jimmy Fallon 'Goodfellas' parody promo that 'Creativenative' mentions in the above post. Pretty fun.

Anyone see that tiki mug in the “Dawn” dish soap Commercial? I could make out the letters TAZ at the bottom but there were many more letters on both sides of Taz.
Nice mug-I Did not recognize it.
Cheers

Last night on "Vanderpump Rules" (don't judge) Stassi served a drink in her new apartment in a Trader Sam's Zombie Mug, which solicited a "what IS that?" from her friend.

Covered on the "other" TV tread here are some shots of my favorite Gilligan homage from "Roseanne":





Spoiler Alert!!!

At the end the real Gilligan cast in reverse rolls. Here Tina Louise (Ginger) is playing the role of Rosanne (sooo opposite) and she does a good job. At this moment America and the world discovers Ms Louise can actually act or what she has been saying her whole career.

Also another favorite, silly Benny Hill from across the pond (for me across two ponds)
Here are three of at least four "South Seas" musical/comedy skits by the British comedian through the years:

ZZ top on Jimmy Kimmel. Check out Frank Beards drums. And the "big rig smokestack" mic stands are pretty cool too.

I'm not sure how to post screen caps, but this past week on The Middle, the family went to a "dive" Polynesian bar in South Dakota called the Leilani. They were all unimpressed at first, but once the lights were lowered and some mood lighting was turned on, they had a good time.
