NBA Superstar Blake Griffin “In The Zone” For Kia


By thelaegotist / / Kia has launched their new campaign – “Next Level” – created by LA-based David&Goliath. In the first execution called “Newspaper,” we see what happens when average people end up “in the zone” for the first time after experiencing the next-level performance of the 2016 Kia Optima. Lucky for them, NBA superstar Blake Griffin is there to help them along, as he is no stranger to the zone. An additional three spots are set to roll out during the 2015/16 NBA season.
