Post-sunset backyard party, Oahu (3:05)
Mraz sings at an evening backyard jam with longtime percussionist Toca Rivera.
Doane: “That was actually filmed on Oahu, too, (near Mokuauia Island and the windward coast town of Laie) on the night of our first day of shooting. It’s a house someone knew about, that we were given access to. We put up a couple of lights, a couple of torches, brought a bunch of food. People partied and hung out, and Jason played.”
Hanalei Pier, Kauai (3:21 and final shot)
The final shot of Mraz kicking back on the Hanalei Bay landmark is actually the final shot of the “I’m Yours” shoot.
Mraz: “We got to Hanalei Pier around 3 (p.m.). This was our last shot and where we said goodbye to everyone. We spent the afternoon surfing at Pine Trees (a Hanalei surf spot) … with a shark sighting.”
