Blake Griffin, the all-star NBA player for the LA Clippers has recently been starring in the adverts for the brand new 2013 Kia Optima. In each of these 5 adverts, Blake travels back in time thanks to the Kia’s UVO voice-activated infotainment system to meet his younger self. Along with advice for the younger Blake Griffin, he explains the best features of this futuristic Kia made for the modern age.
1) 1995 – Shooting Hoops in the Driveway
In this advert, Blake travels back in time to 1995 to see himself shooting hoops in the driveway of his home. When his younger self asks if the Kia he arrived in was his space ship, older Blake responds by telling his younger self that in fact it is the brand new 2013 Kia Optima which has a futuristic UVO voice-activated control infotainment system.
This advanced system allows the playback of music, radio changes as well as traffic and navigation advice to be played back without touching a single button. Blake Griffin advises his younger self to practice his free throws a lot!
2) 1997 - Football
Back in 1997, the world didn’t know just how good the Kia Optima 2013 model really was, which is probably why Blake travelled back in time using the car’s built-in UVO voice recognition platform to 1997. Seeing his younger self playing football in the park, Blake mentions a few futuristic things about the Kia optima, including its heated and cooled front seats.
Blake catches the American football in his hands, proclaiming his younger self and a friend are playing the wrong sport, before proceeding to kick the ball into the horizon. Blake has a few things to tell himself, including to “Stop wearing jean shorts”.
3) 1999 – Video Game Arcade Player Blake
In this advert, Blake travels back to 1999 with the help of his Kia Optima’s UVO voice command system and a little bit of Eiffel 95’s Blue playing in the background. He finds his younger self-playing a car racing video game and proclaims that he needs a better car.
The 2013 Kia Optima is indeed a better car, after being awarded the most appealing mid-sized sedan by J.D Power and Associates. With a whole host of awards from worldwide markets, you can see why it has become such a popular car to drive and enjoy.
4) 2002 – Blake’s Sunblock Advert
Blake uses the Kia Optima 2013 model to travel back in time to see his younger self sat on the ground under a basketball hoop overheating under the sun. Blake offers a giant tub of sunblock to help his younger self out, saying that he is “gonna be needing this, a lot”.
Protection is an important thing, Blake says, before pointing out that the 2013 Kia Optima has great protection for the driver and passengers, being one of the IIHS’s top safety picks.
5) 2006 Blake’s Driveway Bench Press Workout
In this version of the time travel adverts, Blake travels back in time to see himself at a younger age bench pressing weights in his driveway. When asked if he is wearing weight lifting gloves, the older Blake mentions that they are his racing gloves and that his Kia Optima turbo has paddle shifters to change gear, the younger Blake seems rather impressed.
Telling his younger self to keep bench pressing if he wants to look like him, the younger Blake seemed pretty impressed and continued to bench press.
The Kia Optima has many features that make it ahead of its time. With satellite navigation, a rear view camera as well as the fantastic UVO voice-activated infotainment system you are sure to be thrilled with. With excellent fuel economy but having plenty of power at hand, the Kia Optima is a perfect partner for your time-travelling adventures.
