The Curse of Lontiki is an episode of the Alvin and the Chipmunks series.


While in Hawaii, Alvin finds himself cursed forever for finding a Lontiki medallion. When Simon and Theodore seek help from an expert, he runs away when the curse of Lontiki is mentioned. Simon and Theodore commit to help find a cure, but Alvin later decides to leave in order to protect them from his curse. When he's gone, Simon finds out that the curse is for Lontiki the Second and Alvin was never cursed. While Dave continues to search for Alvin, Simon and Theodore find him moments later to tell him the good news and that Alvin can now go back to surfing for the contest and commercial. Alvin loses the contest but finds out the one in last place gets in the commercial because it's a "Wipe Out" orange juice commercial.

  • Alvin, despite just taking up surfing on this trip, considers him self to be a pro surfer. Despite appearing to have noticeable natural ability for the sport, a wipe out, which happens as Alvin is practicing for the surfing competition, that would have been easily avoided by a true pro surfer indicates otherwise. Alvin assumes that the person making the commercial wants him for his surfing skills. Actually, as it turns out, he wants Alvin because he seems likely to wipe out, as the name of the product is wipeout orange juice, "For the guy that comes in last."
