Christopher Walken 2016 Kia Optima Super Bowl Commercial

Christopher Walken has seen and done it all in Hollywood, from playing an evil ping pong magnate in “Balls of Fury” to appearing in the Woody Allen classic “Annie Hall” to showing off his dance moves in a memorable video for Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice.”  Whatever the project, you know anything he does will be interesting and of the highest quality.  Which is why he’s been a great fit the 2016 Kia Optima, the mid-size sedan that is as unique as Walken is.

Christopher Walken has already narrated two 30-second commercials for the 2016 Kia Optima, “Cookie Cutter” and “Middle C,” but there’s a 60-second Super Bowl commercial headed your way on Feb. 7, so stay tuned during the Panthers -Broncos tilt to see Walken lend his charm to the hilariously titled ad, “Walken Closet.”  We have an advance look at the final product, a 90-second extended version of the commercial.  Read on to view the fun and informative ad.  Read the rest of this entry >>

Blake Griffin Predicts the Weather in New Kia Optima Commercial

Blake Griffin 2016 Kia Optima Weatherman Commercial

We count on meteorologists to provide us with what kind of weather we can expect over the course of the day, or even the week.  We rely on them so much at times that when they miss their predictions we might wind up wearing shorts on a cold day or a rain coat in a drought.  You’ll probably still tune in again to see what they say about that storm front that may or may not be coming in, but each time they whiff on the weather, it eats away at your confidence.

We want certainty in life.  So when it comes to predicting the weather and living up to promises, look no further than the 2016 Kia Optima, the mid-size sedan that has everything you want in a mid-size – and more.  Blake Griffin illustrates this beautifully and hilariously, once again, in a 2016 Kia Optima commercial where he plays weathermanRead the rest of this entry >>

Christopher Walken 2016 Kia Optima Middle C Ads 

Kia is almost as well known for its spokespeople as it is for fun and unique cars.  Whether it’s the hamsters who dance their way into and out of the Kia Soul or it’s LeBron James acting as style ambassador for the luxury sedan Kia K900, there have been plenty of memorable commercials to go along with Kia vehicles.

And then there’s Christopher Walken, who narrates commercials for the 2016 Kia Optima, with two ads, “Middle C” and “Cookie Cutter,” already on TV and online.  Stay with us and we’ll hook you up with the video and perhaps a few other goodies, as well.  Read the rest of this entry >>

New Optima Commercial is as Good as the Perfect Sandwich

2016 Kia Optima Peanut Butter Jelly Commercial Blake Griffin  

Blake Griffin is as good at making funny commercials as he is at rebounding and dunking the basketball for the Los Angeles Clippers in the NBA.  Which is to say, he’s very good.  The second TV ad in the 2016 Kia Optima campaign featuring Griffin continues the theme of being “In the Zone.”  The first commercial showed him calmly reading a newspaper while a startled person arrives with a 2016 Optima in the cloud-filled, dream-like “Zone.”  This new commercial shows Griffin making a perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich while a new arrival to the “Zone” learns the funny details of just how ideal the peanut butter to jelly ratio is.

Basically, the NBA Peanut Butter and Jelly Commercial with Blake Griffin for the 2016 Kia Optima is proof that the campaign is picking up steam and continuing to make us laugh while we get to admire the Optima’s bold styling, loaded features and great gas mileage.  Read the rest of this entry >>

Dunk-Start My Heart: Blake Griffin Jams His Way into Our Hearts with New Ad Campaign

2016 Kia Optima Release Blake Griffin TV Commercials

It was amazing.  Hopefully you’ve seen it.  It’s that moment where Blake Griffin dunked over a Kia Optima in the 2011 NBA All-Star Game and basically won the dunk contest because of it.  It’s an athletic feat that is hard to replicate, even in a video game, and the esteemed Kia pitchman made it look easy.

Well, Blake is back, and there’s three very big reasons for that: The NBA regular season tips off this month, the 2016 Kia Optima is set to be on dealership lots in the coming weeks, and Blake is once again doing a series of fun ads for the Optima.

Sorento Gets Beefed-Up TV Ad Campaign

2016 Kia Sorento NFL Commercials

Are you ready for some football…commercials?  We’re about a month into the NFL regular season, and Kia recently announced that they are stepping up their ad campaign which runs during the top-rated “NBC Sunday Night Football.”  There have already been commercials during the prime-time NFL telecasts featuring the 2015 Kia Optima, but these new NFL ads will feature the 2016 Kia Sorento, the largest of Kia’s SUVs and an amazing vehicle with power and performance coursing through its fuel.

This is a continuation of the narrative that began with a Super Bowl commercial that announced the 2016 Kia Sorento to a global audience.  The vehicle, with an available V6 engine and up to 290 horsepower, as well as space for a large group and all of their gear, has been scooping up awards ever since, like J.D. Power’s award for Highest Ranked Midsize SUV in Initial Quality and the NHTSA 5-Star Safety Rating.  Check one of the eye-catching introductory ads for the 2016 Sorento below: Read the rest of this entry >>

Who is the NFL’s New Ad Partner? Kia and NFL Team Up for Road Trip

Kia Optima Father-Son Road Trip NFL Commercial

On a day when rookie Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was busy tearing up the New Orleans Saints for two touchdowns in his first pro win on Sept. 20, you might have noticed the NFL and Kia are now partners.

How did this happen, you ask?  During the offseason, Hyundai and Kia secured the rights to be an official sponsor of the NFL, as the longstanding contract General Motors had with the league had expired.

Which should lead to a lot more of the fun Kia commercials we’ve come to know and love.  One of the latest examples, and one from this weekend’s NFL broadcasts, depicts a father getting a little jealous over his son quitting his job and selling his possessions so he can buy a new car and drive it across the country.  Let’s look at some fun details that emerge from the Kia Optima father-son road trip commercial.

History of the Kia Soul Hamsters Commercials

Skinny Hamsters 2016 Kia Soul

Skinny Elvis or Fat Elvis? Which is better – the vigorous hip-gyrating “Blue Suede Shoes” dude or the portly, soulful man who belted out “Suspicious Minds” while sporting a rapidly expanding belt? Big or small – it’s the age-old question. One that gained a new entrant in 2013 when the famous Kia Soul hamsters appeared skinnier than ever during an ad for the 2014 Kia Soul.

In the years since, while many of us have worried about highway miles per gallon or towing capacity, the chosen few have wondered what is better for Kia Soul sales: The chunky, clunky hamsters of old, or will skinny hamsters be hawking the 2016 Kia Soul?

Opinions have been mixed among advertising rodent-followers: Some prefer that the hamsters look leaner and healthier since it promotes a healthier lifestyle, while some like the positive body image the larger versions presented. Read the rest of this entry >>
