How many of you would like to find Christopher Walken in your walk-in closet? In Kia’s 2016 Super Bowl ad, they introduce to you the one and only ‘Walken Closet’ and you can see it right here!
Kia might have come up with the most clever Super Bowl 50 ad yet. Placing the legendary actor Christopher Walken in a man’s walk-in closet is absolutely brilliant! This 17-second commercial will definitely have you laughing. Check it out!
The ad features an ordinary man dressed in all beige who goes into his all beige walk-in closet to look for the beige socks he cannot find. Did you catch that almost everything is beige? Good. When he walks into his closet, to his surprise he finds that Christopher is the one who actually found his socks. The Academy Award winner asks the man, “Richard, are you looking for these?” It looks like a scene from one of the The Godfather movies! But lo and behold we have the “Walken Closet.” The pun was totally intended in this case.
What’s the most interesting thing about this ad is that there is absolutely no mention or sign of Kia anywhere. We didn’t really find out it was a Kia Optima commercial until the very end. The full spot will focus on the Optima midsize sedan, positioning it as a “vibrant alternative for those determined not to fit in,” said a release shared with Campaign US. The ad will be featured in the third quarter of Super Bowl 50 so keep a look out for it!
So far the Super Bowl 50 ads include Ryan Reynolds, Alec Baldwin and Kevin Hart, but Christopher’s ad has to be the best one so far. This guy is original and is definitely a one of a kind man. Kia might have found their best spokesperson yet.
