The Kia Optima Dunk (Attempt)

By | March 5, 2012

While we’re on the Kia Optima topic, we might as well review it’s recent celebrity encounters.  Whether you love or hate the Optima’s styling, you have to admit that Blake Griffin made the car look pretty cool in last years slam dunk contest.  Receiving a pass through the moon roof, Blake performed a spectacular dunk – in his usual fashion.

Naturally, if the 6’10 NBA superstar can dunk over the Kia, shouldn’t the Kia do the same?  With a little bit of Back to the Future flair, Kia put together this clever commercial.  What do you get when you combine a Kia Optima, Blake Griffing, Jeff Goldblum, a basketball, and a ramp?  Hilarious results.

This is so funny. Kia actually knows how to use a spokesperson in their ads. I don’t know if you saw that Charlie Sheen Fiat commercial- it was an uncomfortable, embarrassing train wreck.
