Kia Optima & NBA All-Star Blake Griffin Introduce “The Griffin Force”



Kia’s partnership with basketball superstar and global brand ambassador Blake Griffin continues once again. This year, Blake wears a cape and introduces a sidekick, played by Jack McBrayer from the hit show 30 Rock. The dynamic duo, along with their Kia Optima, form a superhero squad known as “The Griffin Force,” and will appear in a series of eight new television commercials for Kia’s best-selling Optima midsize sedan.

In the spots, we witness their epic adventures as they stop people from committing the “crime” of purchasing a lame vehicle.


“Trailer” demonstrates how the Griffin-McBrayer superhero squad fights to save the world, one Kia Optima at a time. A second spot, “Zipline,” will begin airing in early November and continue the epic adventures as The Griffin Force saves citizens from making terrible decisions by showing them a better, smarter and more attractive way: The redesigned 2014 Optima. The campaign launches during the Kia NBA Tip-Off ’13 doubleheader on TNT with 60- and 30-second versions of “Trailer.”

In addition to a series of TV spots, the campaign will feature other integrated elements that position the Kia Optima as a smart decision and “The Griffin Force” as a superhero squad that people can rally around and become a part of.

Samsung Mobile: Surf – The Snail via Leo Burnett



Every living being on this planet has a need to connect with something greater than itself. From the tiniest snail attempting to cross a vast and unpredictable sidewalk, to each surfer ignoring their own fragile ‘shells’ every time they paddle out into the awesome power of the ocean.

Samsung believes it’s this basic need that leads to progress, and that progress always leads to more progress. As sponsor of the WSL World Championship Tour, Samsung has continually witnessed the world’s best surfers push their limits and in the process, spread the love of the sport to new and unexpected parts of the world.

The Snail was directed by AG Rojas from Park Pictures and tells an inspiring story of an Indian boy who uses the samsung phone to get access and be inspired by the Pro Surfers, in this case Gabriel Medina, John John Florence, Mick Fanning and Sally Fitzgibbons.
