Um… Kia? Your Commercial Looks Really Weird…

Yes, we are discussing Kia’s upcoming Super Bowl XLVII commercial, so in one way they have already succeeded in doing their marketing work. But we are not going to say nice things about it, so maybe that’s not a good thing! (Sure, they say there’s no bad publicity, but we were about to buy a few Optimas, but now we have to reconsider, so you have to wonder).

Apparently the folks over at Kia did not get the memo, that some of us are tired of commercial featuring babies doing non-baby things. Their new ad is titled “Space Babies,” but if we were in charge it would be called “What the HELL was that?” Probably a smart move by their Human Resources department not to hire us, then.

And here is the teaser we’ve been given for this year’s game:

Look, we’re going to make this very simple. Here is the teaser that Kia ran for days before the 2012 Super Bowl:

KIA 2012 Super Bowl Commercial:

Maybe 13 really is an unlucky number? If you prefer strange Space Babies, not to mention Space Pandas, Space Giraffes, Space Hippos, etc. then that’s fine for you. But we prefer Regular Adriana Lima any day of the week, even Super Bowl Sunday.

To be fair, though, the little Space Puppy? Yeah, he’s cute as hell.
