    kalani robb, I cannot judge you........ But ........ I just saw u in the new Arby's commercial. Had to do a double take. Mixed emotions. Speechless my friend. I just thought it would never happen. Al Merrick was one thing. Carl's JR and Arby's . Priceless . Not just the token Hawaiian in the a list comedy flick. You made it my man. You made it

    I am not mad at him at all. He has been in a few hollywood films like forgetting sarah marshall and a couple others. But this was not a surf related commercial. It was just Kalani, eating a burger then smiling... he was like a 2 second appearance... just weird... caught me off guard on the late night.

    I saw this too - maybe he is just trying to make the transition into film...

    I thought it was pretty hilarious as well...but good for him for getting $$$ from outside the surfing industry. Gotta be hard to be a pipe specialist and pay the bills!

    Yeah, true that. I guess, aside from Kelly Slater in his Bay Watch days, surfers and action sports guys in general really don't have the appeal in Hollywood, or they don't have the desire to be there, but the only cameos that surfers ever get are basically a joke. Like in forgetting Sarah Marshall. With Kalani and that d-bag from the wolf pack... It was just clowning the North Shore surfing bravado....

    I would have to assume that over in OZ and stuff, where surfing is literally their national past-time, that Mick Fanning and Parko and Taj are doing hanes commercials, used car lot commercials, probably doing bail-bonds spots and anything they can get there hands on....

    I think I would just crawl in a hole if, albeit retired, I saw rob Machado (one of my local heros and one of my favorite all time surfers) in a McDonalds commercial...

    lemme tell you about Arby's. the roast "beef" is actually roast "gelatinous schlort". it comes in the store wriggling in a plastic bag. then put in a heating cabinet until it hardens up. then roasted in an oven until it's a meat like texture, cut and placed on a bun for your enjoyment. I bet Kalani didn't swallow any of it.
