Not only is Kia well known for their high quality, high tech vehicles, but they're also well known for the fantastic commercials they make to market them. From the get go they've turned out funny, sentimental, and just plain danceable ads that get stuck in people's heads.
Trust me, when you head down to one of your local Kia dealerships, just try not to picture a bunch of hamsters letting loose. Bet you can't do it. Check out these first-rate Kia commercials. They'll bring back lots of memories and probably make you laugh out loud.
Kia definitely has some oldies but goodies; that's for sure. One classic shows a man doing some faux negotiating to impress his wife.
While sitting in a showroom model, the husband flails his hands around and makes a fist while talking to the salesperson.
The husband actually thinks the car is a great deal, but he explains that he has to make his wife believe he's negotiating aggressively. The salesperson tells the guy he's got his back and reports to the wife that her husband is one tough fella.
Before Kia had hamsters, they had a famous sock monkey. In a commercial from Super Bowl season, a human-sized sock monkey and his toy pals go on quite the adventure in a Kia Sorento.
But the trip quickly comes to an end when a little boy and his mom hop in. Didn't you always wonder what your toys were doing when you weren't in the room?
The Soul Takes the Stage
Where would the Kia Soul be without the signature hamsters that helped it bust into the market with their sweet dance moves?
Though it wasn't the hamster's very first appearance, one of their most popular early commercials was choreographed to "Everyday I'm Shuffling."
Three trendy hamsters press pause on the apocalypse and unite a field of armed bots with their hip dance off.
This or That
One of Kia's most famous hamster ads hit the scene in the early 2000s. Rapping hamsters with trendy headphones and classic hip-hop gear put a new spin on "Black Sheep."
They go around the city comparing the shiny, modern Soul to riding in a toaster or cardboard box. "You can get with this or you can get with that."
