Kia “Male Fantasy” Super Bowl Ad to Feature Adriana Lima, Chuck Liddell and Mötley Crüe
In terms of prime time viewing, it often doesn’t get any better than during the Super Bowl. As a result companies want to make every second of air time count during the commercial breaks, often leading to some of the most inventive ads of all time.
This year, Kia Motors is pulling out all the stops, thanks to a commercial which Michale Sprague, head of Kia’s US marketing and communications calls “the ultimate man’s dream.” It’s all part of a plan for Kia to boost its image into a more upscale, edgier brand.
Essentially, the ad incorporates a Kia Optima tearing around a race track, while scantily clad supermodel Adriana Lima and mixed-martial arts fighter Chuck Liddell do what they do best, as Mötley Crüe rock on stage, performing Kickstart My Heart.
The 60-second commercial will first be seen in movie theaters beginning on February 3, while 15-second teaser ads will also air beforehand. In an attempt to maximize the ad’s potential Kia will also leverage both the Twitter and Facebook followings of the stars featured in the commercial.

Kia returns to the big game for the third straight year with a fully integrated marketing campaign incorporating TV, cinema, digital, print, social media and in-dealership components. In a Super Bowl advertising first, the complete "Drive the Dream" ad will premiere on February 2nd on more than 18,000 movie screens nationwide in National CineMedia's FirstLook pre-show program before airing in the game. Kia also will run 15-second teaser ads (see below) featuring Adriana Lima on TV and in cinema beginning on January 27th, while also leveraging the Twitter and Facebook channels of the spot's celebrity cast. A special expanded version of the ad will be available at YouTube beginning on February 2nd.
"With more than 100 million people watching the Super Bowl broadcast and millions more viewing content online around the world, Kia will once again deliver a memorable, one-of-a-kind campaign that entertains people before, during and after the game and leaves them wanting to see the Optima Limited fantasy again and again," said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing & communications, KMA. "We selected an eclectic group of celebrities and personalities for 'Drive the Dream' to enable us to tap into a diverse body of fan bases and leverage each talent's expansive social media footprint."
Created by David&Goliath, "Drive the Dream" opens with the familiar notes of THE CHORDETTES' 'Mr. Sandman' as a real-life Mr. Sandman enters the bedroom of an unsuspecting young couple who are asleep. After being sprinkled with "Sweet Dreams" dust, the woman smiles and envisions herself on a horse with a romance novel-like hunk in a beautiful green meadow. Meanwhile, Mr. Sandman accidentally stumbles and spills his entire night's dust supply on the man, launching an extreme dream sequence that begins with the roaring guitars of Mötley Crüe's 'Kickstart My Heart' and Adriana Lima waving a checkered flag as he blasts around a race track at night in a Snow White Pearl Optima Limited with thousands of bikini-clad fans cheering him on from the stands.
As he circles the track with Lima looking on adoringly, the dreaming driver receives nods of approval from the band as bursts of flames and fireworks surround their stage as well as Chuck Liddell, champion bull rider Judd Leffew, and a pair of lumberjacks sawing a massive submarine sandwich.
"' had a blast doing the Kia commercial," said bassist Nikki Sixx. "A hot model, a fast car, a pro fighter, pyrotechnics and rock n' roll... What's not to love?"
Much to the disbelief of Lima and drummer Tommy Lee, the high-octane dream turns into a fairy tale when the husband makes a conscious decision to drive the Optima Limited off the race track and into his wife's fantasy to win her back from Prince Charming.
"After working with Kia for the Super Bowl last year I was drawn to work with the fast-growing brand again by the idea of exploring people's ultimate fantasies in a fun and lighthearted way, and I am certain we have created a spot people will be talking about after the game," said director, Noam Murro.
