Editor's Pick

NBA All Star/L.A. Clippers player Blake Griffin travels back in time to impart some wisdom to his younger self in David & Goliath's new spots for the 2013 Kia Optima, directed by PrettyBird's Paul Hunter. In this spot, he steers Griffin junior toward what he believes to be the right sport, and in another, he encourages little Griffin to brush up on his skills at the free throw line. The spots hilarious play off some old tunes from the mid-'90s to highlight the car's UVO entertainment system.
