TUAW Giveaway: iTiki iPhone skins bring 50's tiki culture to your phone


TUAWloha! If you're into the kitsch and nostalgia of tiki culture, then you're going to love the new iTiki iPhone skins from IAA. According to the video above, you'll be protected from evil and become more attractive to members of the opposite sex if you put an iTiki on your iPhone. Hey, it's on the Internet -- it can't be a lie!

It's also the only iPhone case we've seen here at TUAW that has a butt (see the video for details), a navel, hands, and "feets." To quote the important historical information on the back of the iTiki box, "In Polynesian culture, Tiki was the first man and he created woman, because he was lonely. Later, he created the Mai Tai and several himself-themed bars because he was thirsty. Just think what he'll do for your iPhone!"

The lovely and classy iTiki skins, available in Pacific Blue and Koa Orange, would normally cost you US$29.97. TUAW, in the interest of furthering historical research into tiki culture, is going to give away two of these top-quality skins that are designed on the North Shore of the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
