Stupid Kia Soul Commercial



To sum it up:

[the scene: fancy golf course, full of rich old guys.]

Up drives the Kia soul. Into the parking lot full of classic and not so classic performance and luxury cars. All the old guys look up to make sure this crap box on wheels doesn't hit one of their cars. (maybe it's just really noticeable because it's so ugly?)

Anyways...

The Kia pulls up at the roundabout and parks like it owns the place, and out gets this semi hot Asian chick (who is this person anyways?) At least the old guys are now looking at something they want.

Girl proceeds to whack the ball really far, way far.... but... [scene cuts away before the ball goes into the lake].

To summarize the sum up:

Girl who has bad taste in cars, manages to not scratch any of the valuable cars while parking at the golf club like she owns the place, she then proceeds to make old horny men look at her while she drives a ball into a lake. (we don't see where it actually goes, I'm guessing here).

The point? Who knows.

Her name is Michelle Wie. She is now I believe one of their spokesperson.

She is a Pro Golfer...IMO, smart idea to show national pride in their advertising campaigns to appeal to a younger generation...and from what I know, good results probably better than using Kobe Bryant or something (for their line of cars I don't think he'd even sign though)

Damn Trevor your quick lol

That is her. I can't figure out what is being sung; only bits and pieces. Jim Furyk sponsored Hyundai and shows him driving through his home state of Hawaii.

really good ad campaign actually. appeals to the target market, doesn't hurt with michelle wie as a spokesperson either---brings something different to the table. kia & hyundai have been doing a good marketing effort lately.

it's not a commercial to state that the soul is competing with the luxury cars, those cars are there to set the scene for the types of folks and atmosphere at the golf course.

Ok first of all, the soul is ugly as sin, right up there with the Cube and the new 1 series coming out.
Second of all, the Equus is one of my favourite non European cars at the moment and you cannot compare that to anything we are talking about in this thread as it is meant to compete with cars in the 200K range.

I want an Equus, Black on Black, spacers blacked out chrome, and hacked air ride module so I can dump the hell of it.

im korean and im not gunna lie korean cars maybe 10 years ago .. was piece of crap lol...
but they are now slowly gaining their quality over the years.

yes they still have crappy cars like elantra and what not for their entry level cheap cars but the new genesis , sonata and their mid size suv ( santafe ) are pretty well built.

i just hope they make better looking cars tho, still kinda look awkward korean styling.
