Fast-food giant, Burger King, rolled out a new ad showcasing the Whopper sandwich as a part of everyday island life. The commercial demonstrates how the Burger King brand resonates with Hawaii locals in everyday activities, including active recreation like the beach, yoga and even hiking.

Is your mouth watering yet?

Behind the Scenes

with Aloha Gas


It was a kiss that blew him away. In the latest Aloha Gas ad campaign starring Cody Easterbrook, special effects are used to sweep Cody off his feet. The commercial directed by Kinetic Production's James Sereno uses stop motion photography to achieve a unique effect. The spot for Aloha Gas is rare in that it features no cars just actors arriving in invisible vehicles. While Cody is ready to pump his gas, another patron, a beautiful island woman played by Kaiulani Carr, blows him a kiss that knocks him to the ground. The jaw dropping effect is achieved using a production assistant in a green suite guiding the actor in his fall to the ground. Using chroma key, the little green man is later removed frame by frame creating the unique stunt. The entire commercial was shot on location at an actual Aloha Gas station that remarkably remained open during the entire shoot.

Cody breast feeds baby in acclaimed commercial


Cody Easterbrook has been cast in a very unique ad campaign for Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition.  The TV advert, created by Kinetic Productions, was launched earlier this year and features a young father attempting to quiet his fussy baby after mom leaves the newborn in his care. The shirtless father, played by Cody Easterbrook, tries to amuse his little one until ultimately, much to his surprise, the baby stops crying and finds comfort in trying to nurse from his father. 


“I’d say you can’t write this stuff, but apparently someone did and they actually turned it into a commercial,” said actor, Cody Easterbrook. ‘When I read the script I didn’t actually believe this was real, I went on the audition to see if it was and I booked the part. The next thing I knew, I was breastfeeding a baby on TV.” The commercial directed by Jay Hanamura has received much acclaim by critics and viewers alike. ‘Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies’ is a nonprofit agency that is part of a network of organizations and individuals committed to improving maternal, child and family health.

"It's a feeling unlike any other," boasts adventurer, Cody Easterbrook. "Sitting in the back of a modern day land rover, screaming as we were sent soaring up and over the vast expanse of ancient desert sand-dunes, then surging down the steep sides of those towering Arabian dunes, I watched the sand fly by my window and my stomach jumped with excitement as our driver seemingly defied gravity!" 


From camels to land rovers, times sure have changed in the desert. Yet, among the attractions of Abu Dhabi, any traveler will find the best of both the past and the present. At the Arabian Nights Village one can enjoy it all. A dune bashing adventure en route to an Arabian feast under the desert stars.

KHON 2 News interview with Cody from Abu Dhabi

JAN 27, 2014 | ABU DHABI

Cody Easterbrook says he has been preparing for this trip his whole life.

“Today, I am speaking to you all the way from Abu Dhabi,” Easterbrook said.

The world traveler is one of five people in the running to become Jauntaroo’s Chief World Explorer for a year with a hefty paycheck of $100,000.

“They’ve got me staying in a palace over here, so it’s not a bad place. I’ve ridden a camel, I’ve gone to watch the stars in the desert, I’ve played with falcons,” Easterbrook said.

Last summer, the Brigham Young University Hawaii graduate and teacher at Kahaluu Elementary school submitted an audition video to the travel website for what was being called the “Best Job in the World.” He was selected as one out of 50 people who made it to the semi-finals, and after online voting was the top vote getter with close to 27,000 votes, which propelled him to the final five.

The competition continues this week in Abu Dhabi in the Middle East.

“We may be competing for the same job, but we are all like-minded travelers and kindred souls. It’s been great to travel to a new place with people who are just like you,” Easterbrook said.

The other four finalists — two girls and two guys. One Australian and three other Americans — are being judged based on how they interact and travel with each other.

“As a teacher at Kahaluu Elementary School, it has prepared me to be organized spontaneous and creative, which I think will be an asset to any world traveler,” Easterbrook said.

The part-time luau host at the Polynesian Cultural Center also says being from Hawaii and coming out on top with the most votes from the semi-finals gives him a little something extra.

“Giving me that boost that I need of confidence and sharing the aloha and I think that’s what we do best. A community is we share that aloha,” Easterbrook said.

The winner will be announced in New York on Thursday.
