Robert F. Kennedy Jr. stars in infomercial for Jamaica hotel

Apparently the paycheck he gets from Air America Radio isn't enough to pay his bills, because Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is currently featured in an infomercial for a Jamaican hotel called "Iberostar". The commercial features him together with such stellar talent as John O'Hurley ("Family Feud") and Carl Weathers ("Rocky") and others even the most ardent fan wouldn't recognize.

In one scene, two nobodies visited a tourist trap and then welcomed a visibly uncomfortable Kennedy; perhaps he was just an unwitting infomercial participant who thought he'd get away with a luxurious "seven day/six night stay" (link):
The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and its partners Round Hill and Air Jamaica provided support to Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Waterkeeper Alliance, during the recently held Iberostar Jamaica Celebrity Sports Invitational at Iberostar Rose Hall Grand Hotel in Montego Bay.

The four-day sports event saw a number of celebrities from across the United States competing in golf, kayaking, beach volleyball and a scavenger hunt, all designed to showcase the diverse offerings of Jamaica and the host hotel, Iberostar. The event also included themed Jamaican beach parties, a celebrity poker tournament, a gala dinner and a live auction, proceeds from which benefitted the Waterkeeper Alliance.

Round Hill contributed a seven day/six night stay in a two-bedroom villa with private pool while Air Jamaica donated a pair of Lovebird Executive class round-trip tickets from one of its U.S. gateways.
Of course, his price is probably a bit higher than others'; Randi Rhodes would do something similar for three days and two nights at the Gold Spike Hotel & Casino in Vegas.
