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.

Aimaq von Lobenstein releases a new film for auxmoney in the style of a road movie


The Berlin-based creative agency Aimaq von Lobenstein (AvL) presents its second campaign film for Germany’s most well-known Fintech brand, auxmoney. Under the tagline “All for one,” the filmmakers are setting out once again to give the auxmoney principle an emotional narrative: person-to-person lending. This time in the style of a road movie.

A gas station somewhere in the American desert. A young man – a ‘sexy outlaw and musician’ type – wants to buy a motorcycle. When the salesman asks him if he has the money, he gives a brief laugh and points off into the distant horizon: “I don’t – but they do!” Amidst a giant cloud of dust, countless riders approach at a gallop. These rescuing forces help our hero out of his financial jam. It’s not Indians sitting on the horses, however; these are everyday people, from businessmen to housewives. All of them symbolize the lenders who give out private loans to individual people via auxmoney. While our young hero races off on the motorcycle with his girlfriend, a voiceover says: “Do you need money? There are lots of people who will help out. Loans starting from 1,000 euros. Nice and easy.
