Who is that sexy hunk in the new Kauai ad?

2014-03-20 09:21
Cape Town – He has been making (and surfing) waves on the interwebs with his ridiculously sexy physique and absolutely mind-blowing ability to look good in a Speedo.

Burt Waikiki is the new face of Kauai’s latest advertising campaign. His quirky YouTube videos are quickly gaining online popularity and so is his laid-back outlook on life.

We managed to get Burt to stand still for a few seconds so we could ask him a handful of questions. The charming Casanova had this to say:

Where are you from?
Ah! Hello! It is very nice to be meeting your face. Look at your body! Wow! It is like mine! I like you. Me? I am from that place where everyone is happy and free. You know that place? The one inside?  
How old are you really?
Today I think I am 24. Last week I was 42. I am a little bit backwards sometimes. I think maybe next week I will feel like a child boy. I am as old as I want to be! You must be somewhere between 10 and 80 am I right?
What’s your best tip for staying healthy and in shape?
It is about the balance - the food, the smoothie, the beach, the yoga, the smiling muscles, the people and the laughter. And the recreation - do not forget to recreate.
How many pairs of Speedos do you own?
Oh these aren't mine.

What’s the most epic thing you’ve ever done in your life?
Well there was this one time when Fred, my penguin, swam from Cape Town to Moscow. It was a little bit tiring, but they didn't have any more peanut butter bomb smoothies so we swam back.
What’s your favourite inspirational quote?
I'm all about living in the now. See? Here comes a new now now!  
Are you single?
Don't be silly - you are here with me no?
What do you do for entertainment?
Oh so much! I wake up! It is amazing to wake up! Then you can do the stuff! I like to try on new speedos - totally amazing balls! I go for the surf, and the feeding time - ah this is a good day no?

When and why did you adopt the healthy lifestyle?
On the day I was born, my mother took me in her arms and said "I shall call you Burt - because you are a natural: keep going"
