Amid Traffic Jam Of Commercials, Kia Says Its Super Bowl Campaign Is 'Epic'

By Barry Janoff, Executive Editor

Kia's Super Bowl XLV out of this world spot will encompass time and space.January 25, 2011: Kia Motors America, which will be one of at least eight car-related companies advertising on Fox during Super Bowl XLV, has unveiled its creative plan as the automaker returns to the game for the second successive year.

Following its Super Bowl debut in 2010 Kia Motors said that its sophomore effort for Super Bowl XLV would include a fully integrated and interactive marketing campaign incorporating TV, digital, print, social media and in-dealership components to introduce the 2011 Optima midsize sedan.

Anchoring the campaign will be 60-second spot, “One Epic Ride,” that is scheduled to air during the first quarter of the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Feb. 6. According to Kia, the ad, from lead agency David&Goliath, shows how people "across space and time — from a police officer and an international villain to aliens and Poseidon, the king of the sea — will go to great lengths to snatch the all-new Optima from the clutches of others and put themselves behind the wheel."

Kia said that the commercial "demonstrates the extreme measures people will go to get their hands on a midsize sedan that defies the conventions of the segment with a combination of striking design, exhilarating performance and outstanding value not found anywhere else in the category."

Kia said it would extend the campaign by giving away up to five Optimas through its “One Epic Contest,” which challenges consumers to solve a series of puzzles using clues provided in pre-Super Bowl and game day advertisements and social media postings. Now through the Super Bowl, consumers can discover clues hidden within various media channels, including 15-second TV spots, print ads and social media postings, to answer a series of four questions. A fifth question will be revealed the moment “One Epic Ride” airs during the Super Bowl. (Full details here.)

"It was an easy decision to return to the game this year to build on the brand’s momentum with the arrival of the all-new 2011 Optima."

“2010 was a historic year for Kia, including our best-ever U.S. sales and our first Super Bowl commercial, and it was an easy decision to return to the game this year to build on the brand’s momentum with the arrival of the all-new 2011 Optima,” Michael Sprague, vp-marketing and communications for KMA, said in a statement. “The first phase of the Optima launch promised that this vehicle is ‘not your average midsize sedan,’ and we knew we had to deliver something big for this year’s Super Bowl to give this eye-catching vehicle the attention it deserves, while at the same time generating fun and genuine interactions with consumers before, during and after the Super Bowl.”
