Video: 2012 Kia Optima Blake Griffin next level dunk ad

Kia has signed Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin up for a new commercial for the Optima Sedan.

After a well received stunt at February’s NBA Slam Dunk Contest where he slam-dunked an ally-oop passed ball over a Kia Optima, Kia decided to move forward with more promotions featuring the NBA Rookie of the Year.

“Time to Shine” is the name of the upcoming 30-second commercial featuring Griffin in daredevil-esqe attire and roller skates. The player will be towed up a ramp and then catapulted into the air to dunk a basketball into a 45-ft high hoop.
