Unlike some advertisers who stick with the same themes year after year in their Super Bowl commercials, Kia likes to mix it up. For the past seven years, they have used an entirely unique approach to promote a specific Kia model. Impressively, Kia ads have often ranked among the most creative and most memorable Super Bowl commercials.
In honor of Super Bowl 50, Kia once again made a memorable appearance on our TV screens with an ad that was fun, creative and like no other. To Optima-ize their chances of going viral, Kia brought on celebrity Christopher Walken to star in the 60-second commercial. In supporting roles were two sock puppets and a guy named Richard. They all came together to promote the new generation of the Kia Optima.
Watch the extended version of the ad here and decide which type of person are you. Beige socks or colorful socks?
While the ad was cute, before we dish out more than 20K, we want some reassurance that the new Kia Optima midsize sedan is quite a bit more exciting than “the world’s most exciting pair of socks.”
The 2015 Kia Super Bowl Commercial
Kia’s 2015 ad was a fantastic Bond spoof starring Pierce Brosnan as the leading man. The commercial promoted the automaker’s latest Sorento model. The plot? We watched as Brosnan discovers that he has just landed the role of his dreams – a starring spot in a Kia Super Bowl commercial! The only problem is, his latest gig isn’t quite the adventure-packed action film that he is used to.
