April Fools' Day again? Wait...no!

Glad you finally made it :drink:

This is one of the best documentaries in regards to the tiki culture to date. I highly recommend you get this if you are on Tiki central this is a must have movie in your collection. The debut at Tiki Oasis was amazing, this will provide the details into the origins of tiki culture and bring you to the edge of its downfall. My hope is that volume 2 will be released so we can share all that is glorious tiki in the modern world.

It is better than you think! Get it!

Got and watched my copy just the other day. Have worked in the entertainment biz for 15 years now and even taught video production for awhile; I was very impressed with how professionally this was handled. Nice job!

Does the Pay Pal come up in German when you try to order this DVD or is it just me?

Nope, not just you. It did for me as well. My question is, does it ship from Germany?

Wow, this is going to be quite a challenge for someone as patience-impaired as me :wink:

Is there a way to buy a digital download version of this, rather than the physical dvd version?
Thanks!

Does anyone know where I can get a copy if this DVD ?? Or is it available to watch online ??

Amazon had it

$32 on Amazon. Do we get a tub of popcorn and jumbo soda with that? Seriously tho, why is it so expensive? I'd gladly pay $5-10 to stream it once. No DVD on the planet is getting over $30 from me.

Hi Mike, first of all no one‘s forced to buy it. And the reason why it is so expensive is because the audience that this is produced for is so small. It is a very niche special interest production which cost me a lot of my private money to produce. The sale price is trying to cover the costs which I never did. That is also the reason why there is no part II. And I will also give an explanation about why there is no streaming option. It is because of limitations of usage rights for certain interviews, music, archival footage. Back in 2012 when I produced it, it was only meant for the Dvd market and now that streaming would be way more elegant I would have to renegotiate the extra rights. Something that again would cost my time and money. I hope this explains the situation. And it’s perfectly fine if you find that too expensive.

Don't try to buy a book of tiki then. It a great video, plus he had to send rum to some drunkies for their Kahiki footage.

Orders from the US and Canada ship from California.

Not sure why I was so angry and aggressive when I made that post 5 years ago. I did end up purchasing the DVD and am glad I did. Quality work! Thanks for all your efforts in making this and bringing it to the world.

This is a great follow up. 👍

Super stoked to find this! Ordered a copy tonight!
